Abstract:

The Shared Multi-use Remote Robotics Facility (SMURRF) will provide a simple, Flexible, and functional manipulator to assist space operations in an unmanned mode. Shared Multi-use Robotics Facility: Shared - Combined Automated and human controlled modes of operation; Multi-use - the wide range of applications; and Remote - the capability of supporting the operator and robot system with inherent time delays and reduced bandwidth communications. SMURRF, contained in a single shuttle locker, will provide an interface to any scientific, processing, or other application locker, and be controlled from the ground using existing ORBITEC controllers and feedback devices, and existing stereographic displays. SMURRF has potential to save billions of dollars in operations in space that would not normally occur without the presence of humans.
