Communication Team: The Communication team (COM) is responsible for all verbal messages between the Spacecraft and Mission Control.
Data Team: The Data team (DATA) is responsible for all written communication between the Spacecraft and Mission Control.
Navigation Team: The Navigation team (NAV) is responsible for navigating the spacecraft. They must make sure all Earth-based tracking stations are online so that the spacecraft can leave Earth’s orbit. They must also work with the Probe and Remote team to choose and locate a lunar landing site.
The Mission Control team will conduct landing simulations to determine the best option for landing on the moon.
Probe Team: The Probe team (PROBE) is responsible for downloading data from an Earth-orbiting probe and then retrieving the probe. They will then be responsible for assessing if there was any damage to the motherboard. After completing that, they will also correctly have to assemble a probe to be launched to the lunar surface prior to landing.
The Mission Control team is responsible for analyzing the downloaded data and identifying a replacement part for any faulty probe parts. They will also give instructions on how to assemble the probe over the headsets.
Life Support Team:
The Life Support team (LS) will monitor the temperature, air pressure, humidity levels, LiOH filters, oxygen system, solar panels, and water sources..
The Mission Control team records and analyzes this data to determine if the results are within acceptable levels.
Medical Team: The Medical team (MED) is responsible for monitoring the health of the crew. They will monitor the following: visual reaction time, auditory reaction time, heart rate, skin temperature, and respiration.
The Mission Control team records and analyzes this data to determine if the results are within acceptable levels for that crew member.
The Remote team (REM) is responsible for conducting tests on the samples of lunar rock and regolith collected from the Probe.
The Mission Control team records and analyzes the data to learn more about the geological composition of the Moon.
The Isolation team (ISO) works at three stations aboard the Spacecraft and uses robots to manipulate hazardous materials in isolated chambers.
ISO 1 will determine the volume and mass of various chemicals.
The Mission Control team compares the current mass of each chemical to yesterday’s mass to determine if the chemical is leaking.
ISO 2 will monitor the solar array. They will check these frequently.
The Mission Control team records, researches, and analyzes this data provided by the spacecraft astronauts to determine if a shield must be placed over the solar array to protect it from impending meteoroid shower.
ISO 3 will check for normal levels of radiation from each radiation detector using a Geiger counter.
The Mission Control team records, averages, and analyzes this data to determine if the radiation levels are within acceptable levels.
Press Team: This team is optional. The press team interviews the mission controllers and astronauts and prepares articles and news releases about the mission.
