Consists of understanding how you do work in space; with people, with robots and how the two work together.

Company Profile

The success of EASE led to questions about how well robots could build structures in space. The SSL's first neutral buoyancy robot, the Beam Assembly Teleoperator (BAT), was built in 1983 specifically to construct the EASE structure. Over BAT's lifetime, SSL personnel accumulated a large database comparing human and robot performance in space. BAT also demonstrated the ability of robots to assist astronauts during EVA excursions and to service and repair satellites. Since 1983, the SSL has built eight robots, including the Multimode Proximity Operations Device (MPOD), an orbital manuevering vehicle or "space tugboat"; the Secondary Camera and Maneuvering... more
