|Summary||A collaborative effort between the Center (CAVR) and the NASA Johnson Space Center (JSC) is proposed to quantify the effects of autonomy on mission effectiveness, efficiency and safety for joint human-robot operations. The proposed effort leverages ongoing Office for Naval Research-sponsored technology development at CAVR and NASA operational support for the NASA Extreme Environment Mission Operations (NEEMO). NEEMO combines autonomous mapping and navigation, multi-vehicle (heterogeneous) collaboration and information sharing, joint human-robot operations, and persistent robotic operations. Quantified mission measurements on these joint operations will inform research in unmanned systems for Naval, NASA, scientific, police, and other operations. CAVR and JSC expect this initial effort to result in a multi-year collaboration.|
