ESA Project Nr. 9459/91/NL/JG(SC) 'IRAS':

Interactive Remote A&R Servicing

An architecture for interactive automation in space.

It is the objective of study to explore the interactive remote A&R servicing. For that an operational and control concept is defined, developed, elaborated and experimented for the purpose of efficient and optimized operator involvement in remote task execution. The IRAS operation mode is a task oriented interaction with local adjustment of operation sequence and online tuning of activity parameters in order to adept to to actual in-situ conditions.
