    The main objective of the work developed in collaboration with BSO Aerospace & Systems was the design of a methodology and the selection of the software environment and tools for the future integration of the different applications developed under the project AMMI2 (Advanced Man-Machine Interfaces 2).
    The main prototype was developed for an X-Windows environment; our approach was based on the design of a CASE tools set (implemented with Clipper and some modules in C, using Object Oriented Programming), to facilitate the portability of the developed software to different operative environments. An additional module was designed to convert automatically of the Expert System from the previous version (NEXPERT) into plain C code.

The campaign EXEMSI´92 developed in Cologne (Germany) permitted to perform several experiments on four subjects during two months under isolation and working environment similar to a space station. SPET was developed with Clipper. It permits to consult the daily activities plan (Time-Line), to read procedures and additional help, to fulfil psychological questionnaires, to execute specific data acquisition applications based on the computer, and to integrate the collected data into a unique structure on which would be based the final scientific data base.
