Abstract

An astronaut controlling a complex robot on the surface of earth from the ISS. This is exactly what we have done in ANALOG-1. Luca Parmitano teleoperated a rover in a moon-analogue geological mission scenario. On first sight the primary technical challenges seem to be the design of the robotic systems for space and ground. On a second look - with the perspective of using the system with an astronaut on the ISS in loop with an operations team in different ground centers - the scope and challenges drastically increase. In this paper we take a look behind the scenes, and gives insights which could guide future payload developers going on a similar endeavour. This paper outlines the Analog-1 experiment, itself, what it aimed to achieve, and how it was done, and uses it as a case study to outline the challenges and solutions a project team and particularly the payload developer - will have to overcome when designing an ISS experiment. This article may be especially insightful and a good starting point for those from a small research team at a university or other research institution with budget and time pressure. We will present it from the payload developers perspective and on concrete examples of the payloads we flown.
