The development of a spacecraft is a complex endeavour, requiring expertise in numerous different domains, such as mathematics, physics and engineering. Scientists and engineers are facing the challenge of explaining their specialized knowledge to experts of other subject areas. To communicate the specifc constraints of their respective subsystem appropriately, creative communication methods, such as 3D visualizations are necessary. Recent display technologies developed for Augmented and Virtual Reality offer new ways of presenting computer-generated content. Additionally, it enables the direct interaction with the virtual content. By means of a practical implementation the possibilities and challenges for spacecraft configuration employing this technology are explored and discussed. Using an optical see-through Head-Mounted Display an entire interaction concept for a 3D user interface is developed. Finally, a user study is conducted to evaluate the usability of the outlined user interface. Advantages and disadvantages of AR technology in combination with spacecraft configuration as well as potentials for enhancement of the proposed user interface are revealed.
