Paper Abstract

Through the Vision for Space Exploration-hence Vision-announced by George W. Bush in February 2004, NASA has been chartered to conduct progressively staged human-robotic (H/R) exploration of the Solar System. This exploration includes autonomous robotic precursors that will pave the way for a later durable H/R presence first at the Moon, then Mars and beyond. We discuss operations architectures and integrative technologies that are expected to enable these new classes of space missions, with an emphasis on open design issues and R&D challenges.
