Description


Apollo space suit bio-belt harness assembly, measuring approximately 12 x 6, consisting of the pockets that housed various transducer blocks that converted the electrical signals for vital signs such as heart-rate and temperature; these signals were then passed out of the suit and sent to the Primary Life Support System (PLSS) backpack to be broadcast back to the doctors at Mission Control in Houston. This pocket would snap onto the liquid cooling garment in the front stomach area, and it includes part of the electrical harness with several of the connectors that would attach to the transducers, as well as four mock-ups of the metal transducer blocks. In very good condition, with general wear as well as rips and tears to part of the wiring harness. This piece has been authenticated by Bill Ayrey, company historian at ILC Dover, the manufacturer of the Apollo, Shuttle, and Space Station suits, and is accompanied by a letter of provenance from him.
