Potential non-NASA Commercial Applications primarily includes the Department of Defense. In particular, battlefield asset allocation requires optimizing the fleet of available unmanned and manned resources, depending on the purpose of a particular sortie or overall mission. We anticipate that a planner would be able to use our tool to better understand how to allocate networks of UGV's, manned vehicles, UAV's, and other assets. The MRPEA methodology can be extended to accommodate varying assets and mission purposes. In addition, we anticipate that this methodology could be used for design of human/robotic collaborative medical health care scenarios. Specifically, extended hospital or facility care (e.g. senior citizens) will, in the future, utilize robots for certain tasks. As this market sector grows, MRPEA will be useful in designating appropriate human or robot tasks and timelines, and designing architectural scenarios. The primary NASA application for which the MRPEA methodology will be used is in overall mission planning of future planetary surface missions. This is applicable to future planetary surface missions. Last summer President Obama formed a "Review of U.S. Human Spaceflight Plans Committee" (NASA, Seeking a Human Spaceflight Program Worth of a Great Nation: Review of U.S. Human Spaceflight Plans Committee, 2009), tasked with identifying viable options for the future of human spaceflight. One option identified by the group, the "flexible pathway", does not explicitly call for human exploration of any planetary surface. This is in contrast to the 2004 Vision for Space Exploration (NASA, 2004), which lays out plans for human exploration of the surface of the moon, followed by Mars. Given the uncertainty of the involvement of crewmembers in planetary surface exploration, the application of a mission planning aide that allows the flexibility to utilize either robots and humans, or just robots, is highly relevant. The MRPEA methodology provides a flexible process by which mission planners can optimize future planetary surface missions, with varying resources (robots and/or humans), purposes, mission lengths and number of missions, and launch capabilities.
