Surface Telerobotics Success

September 12 2013

If you’ve been following this blog, you know that a big project for IRG this past year has been the Human Exploration Technology Surface Telerobotics Project. The project culminated this summer in three on-orbit test sessions, when we got to see our work used in space. The first session took place on June 17 with Chris Cassidy, the second session on July 26 with Luca Parmitano, and the third session on August 20 with Karen Nyberg. The three crew members successfully scouted for, deployed, and inspected a simulated radio telescope by remotely commanding our K10 rover at the IRG Roverscape. Here is some of the media coverage of our tests:
