ENG is the Engineering Officer. ENG is a common staff position, and as such is found in both Mission Control and in the Habitat.


ENG is responsible for the maintenance and monitoring of the all Habitat Systems. This officer uses the Power Grid Software to prevent short circuits, overheating of the fuel cell, or other crucial breakdowns.


ENG should follow all procedures in the Engineering chapter of the OCESS Procedures Manual including:

Habitat v. Mission Control

The ENG station in Mission Control has no direct control of Habitat Systems through the Power Grid Software, and instead focuses on monitoring, diagnosing problems, and finding solutions to communicate to the astronauts.

The ENG station in the Habitat maintains full control of the Habitat Systems through the Power Grid Software, and the utilisation of various manual cutoffs in the Engineering Closet.
