HITSS Contract: On InDyne’s HITSS program, one critical element in the design of new applications and websites is the consideration of human factors. For example, HITSS provides usability research and analysis for numerous NASA websites including those for the NASA HQ Office of Communications and the Science Mission Directorate. The HITSS Team also specializes in Section 508 of the Americans with Disability Act compliance, which requires that all Web site content be equally accessible to people with disabilities. This applies to Web applications, Web pages and all attached files as well as intranets and public-facing Web pages.

APL’s ESTS Human Factors Engineering team performs hands-on engineering and construction services, building scaled to actual-size prototypes of exploration vehicles and components from the most recent designs. They built an actual-size prototype of the IU and Performance Analysis and Design Demonstrator (PADD), and completed their tasks on-schedule. The timeliness and quality of their work led to NASA-wide celebration as well as interviews and videotaping by Discovery Channel, NASA TV and CBS’ 60-Minutes. Our employees received a NASA Group Achievement Award for their performance.
