Future crewed missions beyond low earth orbit will greatly rely on the support of robotic assistance platforms to perform inspection and manipulation of critical assets. This includes crew habitats, landing sites or assets for life support and operation. Maintenance and manipulation of a crewed site in extra-terrestrial environments is a complex task and the system will have to face different challenges during operation. While most may be solved autonomously, in certain occasions human intervention will be required. The telerobotic demonstration mission, Surface Avatar, led by the German Aerospace Center (DLR), with partner European Space Agency (ESA), investigates different approaches offering astronauts on board the International Space Station (ISS) control of ground robots in representative scenarios, e.g. a Martian landing and exploration site. In this work we present a feasibility study on how to integrate auditory information into the mentioned application. We will discuss methods for obtaining audio information and localizing audio sources in the environment, as well as fusing auditory and visual information to perform state estimation based on the gathered data. We demonstrate our work in different experiments to show the effectiveness of utilizing audio information, the results of spectral analysis of our mission assets, and how this information could help future astronauts to argue about the current mission situation.
