Abstract
The presented paper deals with preconditions, principals and methods for an efficient introduction of Automation and Robotics (A and R) to space applications. Based on available know-how from terrestrial automation the primary problem areas defined as A and R system design, programming, control and prototypic realization are handled with respect to fundamental space system related requirements. For verification of the applicability of automation principals and the desired functionality of orbital A and R system a true scale mock-up of the Columbus Free Flyer was realized. This system will be used for short- and midterm research and development activities related to A and R as well as the associated telescience concepts.
