We analyzed a series of ten systematically developed surface exploration systems that integrated a variety of hardware and software components. Design, development, and testing data suggest that incremental buildup of an exploration system for long-duration capabilities is facilitated by an open architecture with appropriate-level APIs, specifically designed to facilitate integration of new components. This improves software productivity by reducing changes required for reconfiguring an… CONTINUE READING

Key Quantitative Results

  • Analysis showed that a workflow service backbone was established in the third year (MDRS05) and was reused for subsequent configurations, ranging from 85% carryover when entirely different robots and a planning system were incorporated (CDS05) to 100% carryover when shifting from an EVA system to a habitat power monitoring system (MDRS06).
