Abstract and Keywords

Human spaceflight is a multiteam effort requiring the coordination and collaboration not only of individuals within a team (mission control or space crew) but importantly also between teams. In this chapter, the strategies and procedures these expert teams have established to ensure common task and team models, and to facilitate their communication and joint performance, will be discussed. The chapter also includes a discussion of the component teams of the mission control/space crew multiteam system, highlighting important features of their (intra)teamwork. The teamwork challenges of future long-duration space exploration are discussed, as are ongoing efforts and research needs to address them.

Keywords: multiteam system, teamwork, team processes, team communication, team cohesion
