By the time that human missions to the moon resume, a half century or more will
have passed since the last Apollo missions. Technologies only dreamed of in the days of
Apollo will be available to assist, augment, and supplement human explorers on the moon
and Mars. However, many of the current conceptualizations of human planetary surface
exploration seem to start where Apollo left off, with robotic systems largely relegated to
transport functions or operations independent of the human explorers.
Under support from the NASA Lunar Advanced Science and Exploration Research
(LASER) program, the University of Maryland (UMd) and Arizona State University (ASU)
have teamed up in a four-year effort to investigate advanced collaborations between space-
