SSC's Autonomous Systems Laboratory (ASL) is developing the expertise, tools and processes to create robust, affordable autonomous systems.

ASL created NPAS, the NASA Platform for Autonomous Systems, a software toolkit, to simplify and streamline the design, development and testing of autonomous systems. NPAS enables rapid implementation of intelligent autonomy for a broad range of systems and system applications.

Tech Development

Currently, the ASL is working on

  • INSIGHT - Convert SSC's high pressure gas facility into an intelligent autonomous system
  • iPAS - Building, testing, demonstrating and integrating capabilities for autonomous operations on and around the Moon
  • G2 for Spaceflight Computing Processors - Compiling commercial software platform, G2, used to create NPAS, to enable NPAS to operate on current spaceflight qualified microprocessors
