Planning Lunar Surface Traverses for Robotic Scouting Followed By Crew.

Matthew C. Deans, Michael Broxton, Terry Fong, Mark Helper, Kip V. Hodges, Gerald G. Schaber, Harrison H. Schmitt, and Trey Smith. In Proc. Amer. Assn. Petroleum Geol. (AAPG), 2009.




NASA currently plans to return humans to the Moon with a campaign of regularly spaced surface missions. During the 90% of time between crew visits, robots will be available for surface operations. Robotic reconnaissance is the process of using a planetary rover to scout planned sorties prior to human activity. Scouting is well understood to be an essential phase of field work, particularly for geology. This paper presents an approach to planning robotic recon traverses, using a variety of lunar datasets.
