AbstractOne of the main problems which restrict implementation of interplanetary flights, is a guarantee of reliability and safety of the onboard system operation in conditions autonomous manned spaceflight. This issue is not fully analized, that is why it is necessary to answer to a series of new issues, which distinguish interplanetary missions from orbital flight of comparable duration (1.5 - 2 years). The main aim of the “Mars-500 project” is learning of the “man – environment” system in conditions of prolonged isolation, which simulates the flight to Mars (long duration, autonomy, changes of the communication conditions with Earth – restrictions of expendable resources and the information transmission rate).
