The Mobile Extreme Environment Research Station (MEERS) is a testbed for human factors and engineering research focused on habitat design for extreme environments such as space. MEERS is run by students and faculty at Embry-Riddle's Daytona Beach Campus.
The MEERS project is retrofitting a 1974 Airstream trailer to become a mobile habitat design facility that students can access on the Embry-Riddle campus, and can be transported to other locations. The project combines hands on experiential learning with research into aspects of habitability. The research being done in the creation of the habitat is studying how the habitats design influences a crew's mood, behavior, and as a consequence their performance.
