NASA STTR Topic Of Interest

NASA STTR Topic 8: Autonomous Systems

Autonomous and robotic systems are a critical capability in all of NASA’s mission areas
including Aeronautics, Earth and Planetary Sciences, and Human Spaceflight and will be more
pervasive in the future. Current systems are primarily automated, able to respond to a predicted
set of conditions and require human interaction and control. The goal of this topic area is to
develop technologies and capabilities that will lead fully autonomous systems that are able to
learn and adapt to changes in their environment that were not predicted to accomplish the
mission goals with minimal or no human involvement required, particularly if communication
delays are significant or unavailable. Specific capabilities include perception, cognition, and
mobility/manipulation to enable Multi
