Project Title

Telerobotic Standard (Blue Book)



Document Number



2.06 Telerobotics Working Group

Document Type


Description of Document

The proposed Telerobotics Working Group recognizes that the development of the component technologies required to extend human presence and capability into space is accelerating rapidly, and that there are emerging requirements for telerobotics interoperability and cross-support between International civil space agencies. A common framework for telerobotic operations would allow for diverse robotic assets to collaborate on mission goals and realize cost-savings from the cross-support provided by the participating Agencies. The Telerobotics Standard Blue Book will describe the specific standard that the working group agreed-to and will be formalized as an official CCSDS Blue Book. Key elements of the Blue Book include the development of API's, Message Exchange formats and Services required to allow telerobotic elements to exchange information to enable cross support and interoperability to meet mission goals.
