Onboard Adaptive Safe Site Identification System

Completed Technology Project

Project Introduction

Onboard Adaptive Safe Site Identification System
This project will enable advancement in Entry, Descent, and Landing (EDL) by addressing technology gaps for pinpoint and safe landing for both human and robotic missions. Real-time accurate and high-resolution maps of the surface are needed for autonomously identifying and navigating towards safe landing sites. Local surface maps that can be tied globally to reconnaissance maps will also enable missions with multiple ground assets to position those assets in their desired locations. OASSIS will develop algorithms and techniques that actively re-map or update surface maps during descent to eliminate navigation errors, develop safe site identification and selection algorithms, and implement a robotic emulation platform for hardware-in-the-loop testing of critical precision landing functions.
