Develop a conceptual design analytical framework specifically tailored to meeting the needs of outpost classes of missions by addressing the uniquely challenging and diverse enabling technologies identified by NASA: modular design, self-reconfiguring, self-maintaining and self-repairing (cooperative repair). All types of missions can derive significant benefits from advances in these areas, but it would provide greatest benefit to outpost missions.

JPL has a co-investigation role for this work, which is led by John Dolan of Carnegie Mellon University.

Completion Date:  11/30/2005
