This post is a compilation of the dissemination videos of the Call 2018 projects that show how the SRC of Space Robotics Technologies is facing the future space ecosystem and the next generation of exploration missions.
MOSAR (OG9) A Modular and Reconfigurable Future for Space Missions
The Horizon 2020 EU-funded MOSAR project (MOdular Spacecraft Assembly and Reconfiguration) aims to develop a ground demonstrator for on-orbit modular and reconfigurable satellites.
The project will investigate and demonstrate technologies that enable a fundamental paradigm shift in satellite design and deployment that could potentially impact all future space missions.
ADE (OG10) Autonomous Decision Making
ADE, Autonomous Decision Making in Very Long Traverses, refers to the 10th Operational Grant (OG10) of the Compendium of SRC activities (for call 2-topic SPACE-12-TEC-2018) within the H2020-SPACE-2018-2020 call. The challenge of OG10-ADE is to demonstrate in a planetary analogue environment the rover-based system needed to achieve very long traverses (kilometres per sol) with high reliability.

PRO-ACT (OG11) Planetary Robots Deployed for Assembly and Construction Tasks
The primary objective of PRO-ACT is to implement and demonstrate collaborative multi-robot planning and manipulation capabilities in a lunar construction context.
The results from the previous projects, the PERASPERA operational grants (OGs) – OG1 ESROCOS, OG2 ERGO, OG3 InFuse, OG4 I3DS and OG5 SIROM – will be extended and integrated to enable the assembly of an In-Situ Resource Utilization (ISRU) plant on the moon as precursor to human settlement and partial assembly of a mobile gantry.
