The Challenge:

Could the Canadarm3 be operated remotely from the ground to perform operations in space?

In February of 2019, the Government of Canada announced its commitment to build an advanced space robotic manipulator, called Canadarm3, as part of Canada's contribution to the Lunar Gateway, a space station destined for the lunar orbit. Remotely operated from earth, Canadarm3 will require a new paradigm for mission planning and control to accommodate the high cognitive workload of operators performing safety and mission critical operations under extreme time and bandwidth constraints.

Interaptix was engaged by MDA Corporation to utilize augmented reality tools in order to enhance operator perception and performance, increase overall situational awareness for remote operation of robotic systems, and improve remote collaboration between multiple stakeholders involved in mission planning.  Using augmented reality tools developed by Interaptix will offer important benefits over the lifecycle of the system through significant reduction in the cost and human effort involved in mission planning and remote operation of space robotic systems.

The Results:

Using augmented reality tools developed by Interaptix will offer important benefits over the lifecycle of the system through significant reduction in the cost and human effort involved in mission planning and remote operation of space robotic systems.
