In support of the vision for humans to establish a large scale, economically viable, permanent human settlement on the Moon within the next 25 years (Space Frontier Foundation, 2005), the next generation lunar landing vehicle must be capable of achieving pinpoint, anytime, anywhere safe landing on the lunar surface with high precision (10- 100m). In addition, this vehicle should support both autonomous and manned lunar missions (NASA ASO-1160). Because of advances in technology over the past thirty-five years since the Apollo landings, the role of the human and automated systems in a new lunar lander system must be reevaluated and redesigned. This report details the design approach and resultant preliminary, conceptual design concepts for a Human-System Interface (H-SI) for a Lunar Access Vehicle (LAV).
