Eras 

The European MaRs Analogue Station for Advanced Technologies Integration (ERAS) is a program spearheaded by the Italian Mars Society (IMS) which main goal is to provide an effective test bed for field operation studies in preparation for manned missions to Mars. Preliminarily to its construction, IMS has started the development of an immersive Virtual Reality (VR) simulation of the ERAS Station (V-ERAS).

V-ERAS HABITAT

The ERAS habitat has been included into the V-ERAS simulations. As the V-ERAS- Missions are carried more refined design is being developed by IMS.

Analog space suit

We are progressing with a set of tests on the very recently acquired MDRS-like analog spacesuit.

MotiGravity

The Motivity omnidirectional treadmill modified to simulate Martian gravity (MotiGravity) via counterweights and harness. Improvement of the design is currently underway.

V-ERAS ATV

A Martian All Terrain Vehicle (ATV) design is being carried out starting from a basic vehicle drivable on earth gravity as a Virtual Reality based design exercise.

The structure of ERAS project 

ERAS is a modular project divided in different work packages (WPs). Each work package has a percentage of impact on the overall project.
V-ERAS is the virtual version of ERAS: the virtual human exploration of ERAS and of MARS.
A set of national and international SUPPLIERS / PARTNERS with high specialization in Space technologies will help IMS to develop the ERAS PROJECT.
