This project develops robots for autonomous search of Antarctic meteorites and demonstrates advanced perception, control, navigation, and scientific search technologies, as a terrestrial analog to robotic exploration of Mars and the Moon. 
The Robotics Institute at Carnegie Mellon University leads the research and demonstration of robots and technologies of the Robotic Antarctic Meteorite Search. The project is sponsored by the Space Telerobotics Program of NASA's Office of Space Science.
