The Habitat has several emergency systems to help ensure the safety of the astronauts and equipment under adverse circumstances. These include the SLINCE Drive and the Evacuation Tubes.


Main article: SLINCE Drive

The SLINCE Drive uses a long, superconducting cable to create a portable mass driver that can be used to rapidly accelerate the Habitat Earthward as a replacement for the AYSE Drive. It is a single-use device, and must be abandoned in its use.

Evacuation Tubes

Documented in Procedure 6.4, the Evacuation Tubes allow for astronauts who are too ill to remain on the mission to be evacuated back to Earth. They are essentially single-person versions of the SLINCE Drive.
