2nd most popular DARPA feature of 2012: DARPA Makes Room on International Space Station for Programmers

DARPA MAKES ROOM ON INTERNATIONAL SPACE STATION FOR PROGRAMMERS March 06, 2012 Students, professionals, public sought to create algorithm enabling capture of objects in space The absence of gravity presents a significant challenge for precision robotic maneuvering and operations in space. Overcoming some of that challenge may be possible through the development of computer algorithms to simultaneously compensate for this limitation while directing precision operations. Such algorithms could benefit a variety of space activities, including DARPA’s Phoenix program . A primary goal of Phoenix is to develop and demonstrate technologies to cooperatively harvest and re-use valuable components from retired, nonworking satellites in geosynchronous orbit. DARPA’s InSPIRE program (International Space Station SPHERES Integrated Research Experiments), is sponsoring the Zero Robotics A...
