Abstract
The "Human-Robot Site Survey" (HRSS) project is a multi-year activity that is investigating techniques for lunar site survey. The system that we are developing coordinates humans and multiple robots in a variety of team configurations and control modes in order to perform comprehensive surface surveys. Site survey involves producing high-quality, high-resolution maps, including 3D surface models, mineralogy, terramechanics, and subsurface stratigraphy. These maps are required for scientific understanding, lunar surface operations planning, in-situ resource utilization and infrastructure emplacement.
