Paper Abstract

Through the Vision for Space Exploration (hence Vision) recently announced by the US President, NASA has received the charter and challenge of progressively staged human-robotic (H/R) exploration of the Solar System. This exploration encompasses the autonomous robotic precursors that will pave the way for safe and durable H/R presence at the Moon, Mars and beyond; it also entails the development of an orbital space infrastructure to support incremental, cost-effective deployment of both human and robotic assets deep into space. We overview these anticipated mission operations and functions in the context of future robotic and telerobotic capabilities needed to support them.
