Missions seek to maximize total inspection time, which has a direct correspondence with maximizing fuel efficiency. For primitive bodies, using fuel efficiently implies longer observation times and more attempts for surface contact. • Guaranteeing safety: A trajectory solution is needed that can ensure spacecraft and mission safety at all times, for both the vehicle and its neighbors. Guarantees are typically classified into two forms: passive safety, in which coasting arcs emanating from points along the nominal guidance trajectory are certified as safe, or active safety, in which safe actuated abort sequences called collision avoidance maneuvers (CAMs) are enforced [46, Sect.
Though not yet flown on spacecraft hardware, their efficacy has already been proven in real-world systems with challenging dynamics, namely onboard real-time 1 Spacecraft Autonomy Challenges for Next-Generation Space Missions 19 guidance of urban vehicles during the 2007 DARPA Urban Challenge. Several winning entrants to the 60-mi autonomous urban driving race used motion planning as their primary guidance logic, including CMU’s winning Boss car with AnytimeD ∗ , Stanford’s 2nd-place Junior car with hybrid A∗ , and MIT’s 4th-place Talos car with RRTs [24, 79, 83, 90, 126].
A four-wheeled tethered rover was demonstrated with Cliffbot . Unfortunately, this architecture required a minimum of three rovers. Two rovers would traverse the rim of a crater while a third rover, tethered to the other two, would descend into the crater. Lateral mobility with two tethers would generally be greater at closer distances to the rim, but this advantage diminishes as the rover descends deeper into the crater. The Cliffbot used the rim rovers to manage the tethers, which, unlike designs that pay out their own tether, risks higher abrasion from constant rock-scraping.
