Abstract
Ambitions to explore and develop space call for the assembly and servicing of diverse in-space facilities. Robots will assemble future stations, spacecraft and facilities that are orders of magnitude larger, more complex and more remote than those of today. Profiled here is Skyworker research developing robotic technologies for the assembly, inspection, and maintenance of large space facilities.
