As future flight crews on long duration deep space missions are expected to operate more autonomously, considerations must be given to onboard capabilities and human-computer teaming that will fortify the safety net traditionally provided by the Mission Control Center. In August 2018, the Human Factors and Behavioral Performance Element of NASA's Human Research Program convened a Technical Interchange Meeting (TIM) on Autonomous Crew Operations at NASA Ames Research Center to address how intelligent technologies can be utlilzed to augment crew capabilities to support real-time anomaly response. In this paper, we highlight three topic areas discussed at the TIM that have direct implications for future crew anomaly response capabilities: smart structures, cognitive assistants, and manpower.
