Space exploration missions have produced large data of immense value, to both research and the planning and operating of future missions. However, current datasets and simulation tools fragment teamwork, especially across disciplines and geographical location. The aerospace community already exploits virtual reality for purposes including space tele-robotics, interactive 3D visualization, simulation and training. However, collaborative virtual environments are yet to be widely deployed or routinely used in space projects. Advanced immersive and collaborative visualization systems have the potential for enhancing the efficiency and efficacy of data analysis, simplifying visual benchmarking, presentations and discussions. We present preliminary results of the EU funded international project CROSS DRIVE, which develops an infrastructure for collaborative workspaces for space science and missions. The aim is to allow remote scientific and engineering experts to collectively analyze and interpret combined datasets using shared simulation tools. The approach is to combine advanced 3D visualization techniques and interactive tools in conjunction with immersive virtuality telepresence. This will give scientists and engineers the impression of teleportation from their respective buildings across Europe, to stand together on a planetary surface, surrounded by the information and tools that they need. The conceptual architecture and proposed realization of the collaborative workspace are described. ESA's planned ExoMars mission provides the use-case for deriving user requirements and evaluating our implementation.
