Clarissa, an experimental voice enabled procedure browser that has recently been deployed on the International Space Station, is as far as we know the first spoken dialog system in space. We describe the objectives of the Clarissa project and the system's architecture. In particular, we focus on four key problems: creating voice-navigable versions of formal procedure documents; grammar-based speech recognition using the Regulus toolkit; methods for accurate identification of cross-talk based on Support Vector Machines; and robust side-effect free dialogue management for handling undos, corrections and confirmations.
