The OWLAT task will develop a physical testbed to simulate a lander performing operations on the surface of an ocean-world body. The testbed will provide environmental simulants for sensing and sampling operations. The goal of this effort is to assist in the infusion of advanced autonomy capabilities into NASA’s future ocean-world surface sampling missions by providing a testbed to be made available to teams participating in competed research tasks. The testbed will include a robotic arm with sampling tools and lander and arm-based sensing capabilities required for sampling operations.

The Principal Investigator for this work is Issa Nesnas.
