Abstract

Future mission applications for on-orbit servicing vehicles include inspection and maintenance of the International Space Station (ISS) and future crewed deep space missions. The use of robotic servicing vehicles is seen as a key requirement to significantly reduce total human EVA hours for such applications. A necessary technology for these vehicles is the provision of automated mission and trajectory planning tools and suitable human-machine interfaces. This paper will explore new methods for such automation along with approaches to blend autonomy and human control in a seamless manner. These methods have been applied to a range of vehicles including the Daimler-Chrysler ISS Inspector.
