The SPHERES Guest Scientist Program (GSP) supports the efforts of geographically distributed researchers at MIT, the U.S. Department of Defense, NASA, and elsewhere, in the development of algorithms for the SPHERES formation-flying and docking testbed. The GSP consists of a test development framework, a robust and flexible interface to the SPHERES flight software, a portable high-fidelity simulation, two laboratory testbeds, and data analysis utilities. The SPHERES testbed will be operated in… CONTINUE READING
