Author Affiliations +
Automated rendezvous and docking (AR&D) is an activity that is vital to NASA's future endeavors. A team of NASA engineers has created a test bed that allows sensor systems to be tested but also incorporates operator interfaces in order to evaluate the information required by an operator to oversee automated systems. Several sensors have been run through the test bed and more are scheduled in the future. The test bed will be described along with the operator interfaces and results of sensor testing.
