RESEARCH TASKS
underline

Research efforts at JPL are called tasks, and fall into four broad categories by sponsor: NASA science, NASA exploration, JPL internal, and non-NASA (typically DoD). Below is a list of most of our current efforts, linked to short descriptions of the work content and the name of the lead researcher.

NASA Science Mission Directorate (SMD) funded:
  1. Mars Sample Tube Sealing

JPL Internal Research Programs funded:
  1. ISS Remote Inspection System (IRIS)
  2. Small Body Surface Sampler and Explorer (SmalBoSSE)
  3. STABLE

Non-NASA funded:
  1. Active Night-Time Stereo and Localization
  2. ACTUV - Advanced Sensing and Behaviors for Covert Operations
  3. ACTUV - Adversarial Game Theory Enhancements
  4. ACTUV - Autonomy Algorithms for Navigation in High Sea States
  5. ACTUV Phase II
  6. Bioelectric Sensor Arrays for Reliable Prosthetic Interface
  7. DRC - DARPA Robotics Challenge, RoboSimian (Track A)
  8. Perception For High-Speed Legged Vehicles
  9. Phoenix Gecko Gripper
  10. Robotics Collaborative Technology Alliance (RCTA)
  11. Sensor Fusion for Autonomous Navigation
  12. Smart Wells
  13. USSV - Autonomy for Unmanned Sea Surface Vehicles
