Background:


Space robotic systems will become a new technology for future space missions and sustainable use
of space by providing much required service and maintenance to the existing space systems, which
were very expensive to build and launch. This project will inv
estigate a novel design methodology
and actual design of a space robotic system for general purpose larger space system service and
maintenance.


Project Aim:


This project’s aim is to investigate the current design methodologies for mechatronic systems a
nd
develop and apply these methodologies in the design of a new space service robotic system that will
demonstrate the applicability of a new methodology for a satellite refuelling system.



Project objectives:


Working with collaborator, the project aim
s to prototype the system to a demonstration if the
project progress and the partner institution’s progress permits. Specifically the following objectives
will be achieved:



Review the state of the art of design methodology in technology in remote robotic
handling
and manipulating systems ;



Identify knowledge gaps of design methodology in designing such a remote handling robotic
systems and key challenges in manipulating various parts in order to enable required service
actions to perform defined maintenanc
e and services for such systems;



Develop a new design methodology for such remote handling robotic systems with a view of
applying modular design methodology, reconfiguration capability and self
-
repairing principles
and self
-
diagnosis;



Validate the methodo
logy and the new approach through simulation of a remote handling
robotic system within multiple
-
world environments;



Develop a partial space robotic prototype system to validate the design and its ability and
limitations in performing a remote handling tas
ks;



Working with collaborator to assess the capability and limitations of the design to improve it
for future generation design.
