Overview
The Skyworker Project, funded by NASA, will create a team of mobile manipulators capable of walking over extensive space solar power stations and performing the assembly, inspection, and maintenance tasks necessary for operating them outside the effective range of astronaut construction crews. We will demonstrate a prototype manipulator in April 2000.
