Robot-Assisted Space Telemetry (RAST) project

"A team of researchers led by Dr. Garnette Sutherland, neurosurgeon and developer of the neuroArmneurosurgical robot, is looking to solve that problem with their Robot-Assisted Space Telemetry (RAST) project, which will test the feasibility of conducting remote-controlled tele-operations in the International Space Station from a workstation on Earth. One key challenge — among many — is overcoming the network delay due to distance between Earth and space. “We are collaborating with communications experts, including our colleagues at the University of Manitoba, to identify and calculate those delays and signal transmission details with a goal of conducting seamless tasks and emergency medical-surgical procedures in the ISS, the Moon or Mars,” says Sutherland.  The RAST project builds on Canada’s known leadership in space robotic ventures, as well as Project neuroArm’s track record in image-guided medical robotics. “Our RAST project has the potential to transcend frontier…
