Space (and other) Robotics at NRL

The DARPA RSGS (Robotic Servicing of Geosynchronous Satellites) mission will be the world’s first operational satellite servicing vehicle when it launches circa 2021. Dr. Henshaw, the RSGS lead roboticist, will discuss RSGS capabilities, robotic operations concepts, and the algorithm and controls design needed to enable them. He will also discuss MeRLIn (Meso-scale Robotics Locomotion Initiative), an effort to build a sub-10 kg highly agile robotic quadruped intended for use in search and rescue and other constrained, unstructured environments; and current research developing robotic motor learning algorithms capable of allowing a robot to learn new locomotion or manipulation capabilities while respecting the curse of dimensionality, which appears to require intractably long training periods due to the relatively high dimensionality of such tasks.
