Mobile Procedure Viewer
Skytek is developing the second generation of mobiPV project with the European Space Agency (ESA). The MobiPV project brings IPV to a smartphone to allow greater mobility & flexibility for the astronauts, but also to add extra features, such as two-way video communication and real time collaboration.
mobiPV technology offers wireless operation, voice navigation and real-time video streaming of crew work activities as well as procedures. The system is aimed at optimizing crew efficiency on board the ISS.

ESA Voice Guided Procedural Execution
On future missions into deep space, humans and machines will need to work together to handle unexpected, complex and potentially hazardous situations without help from Earth. CRUISE is a technology/crew operations demonstration experiment for voice guided procedure execution system. The CRUISE project demonstrated voice-guided teamwork between crew and computer. This project is aimed at improving astronaut efficiency on long missions when movement is limited.

IPV: Tailoring Procedures & Tasks
IPV is being used intensively on a day-to-day basis to provide advanced crew support.
This project sought to streamline astronauts workflow to ensure that only steps that are actually required to perform an activity are provided to the astronaut. XTP allows ground support to quickly and easily tailor a task to optimise efficient astronaut task execution.
ESA Portal Collaborative Working Environment
Skytek built a collaborative working environment (CWE) for ESTECs Concurrent Design Facility (CDF). This facility supports the design and development of large complex ESA hardware systems, by providing a facility where scientists and engineers can share trouble short and information on system design. Skytek’s Collaborative Working Environment (CWE) is a web portal designed to provide the CDF with the latest in collaborative and communication software and infrastructure to support the exchange of information between personnel both at the CDF and remote users.
