NASA: Latest Innovations in Robotics to Enhance Aeronautics Industry

NASA is focused on utilising latest innovations in Robotics to enhance aeronautics industry

NASA is a well-known independent agency, of the US federal government focused on enhancing the aeronautics industry with the implementation of Robotics. Robotics is thriving in multiple industries across the world to boost productivity and ensure appropriate results as a work companion. The implementation of Artificial Intelligence has modernised robots with cutting-edge technologies. The tech-driven market is full of different types of robots in multiple shapes— from microscopic to large human body size. The aeronautics industry is not lagging to utilise the smart functionalities of robots. Let’s explore some of the latest innovations by NASA in Robotics to enhance the aeronautics industry for the upcoming years.

NASA launched a Human Robotic Systems (HRS) project, to develop robotic technology for assisting humans in space exploration. This project is focused on enhancing the interaction between humans and robots while developing mobile robots and vehicles to boost productivity. NASA is famous for developing multiple robotic devices to help and act as a substitute for astronauts in completing difficult tasks efficiently.

NASA also launcheda lunar robot known as RASSOR (Regolith Advanced Surface Systems Operations Robot), which is 2.5 ft. tall and weighs around 100 pounds with an average speed of 20 centimetres per second for 16 hours each day, minimum of five years as per the design. It is designed to help astronauts working on the moon or Mars. NASA is already working on RASSOR 2 for more efficient work without any error or technical failure.

NASA has designed Spidernaut for construction, maintenance and repair projects for risky future space missions. Spidernaut has different features such as legs can move at three different points, one rotary joint in the hip as well as two linear actuated joints. It can climb across multiple surfaces of spacecraft without any hindrance with eight legs. It is powered by a 72V/3600 Watt-hour lithium-ion battery.

NASA uses robotic arms to move huge objects on a space shuttle known as Canadarm. It can deliver satellites while the shuttle and space station arms cooperate to assist in constructing space stations. Robotic planes help to cover risky and dangerous places to protect human employees. The size is smaller and can be flown with a controller to observe the red zone areas without any human pilot.

Cassini rockets are a type of robot that examines Saturn and its moon for NASA. Robotic spaceraft, known as Spirit and Opportunity, also help in incorporating orbiters, landers as well as rovers on multiple planets. NASA has multiple different types of robots to send to space in the nearby future for receiving some crucial information. NASA is set to develop and launch some robots such as a first-ever multirotor vehicle known as Dragonfly. It is a part robot and part space drone that can cover around 759,000 mile and eight-year journey to Titan. NASA is set to launch Dragonfly in 2026 for a better understanding of life in the universe.
