Abstract
A prototype Next Generation MK III Lightweight HUT/Hatch Assembly will be fabricated and delivered during Phase II. Maximum weight reduction for the Hard Upper Torso - Hatch assembly will be acheived via the innovative material selection and cross sectional redesign investigation Air-Lock conducted during Phase I. The intent is to fabricate a lightweight HUT/Hatch Assembly best suited for space & planetary (or lunar) exploration. This Next Generation MK III Lightweight HUT/Hatch Assembly will be a rear entry assembly and have full "plug and play" capability with previous MK III suits.
