[米国航空宇宙学会(AIAA)の大会(AIAA Space2011)においてAIAA Automation and Robotics Awardを受賞](2011年10月11日更新)

  旧宇宙開発事業団(NASDA)が1997年11月に打ち上げた技術試験衛星VII型(ETS-VII/おりひめ・ひこぼし)は人工衛星同士の自動ランデブドッキングを行うと共に、衛星搭載ロボットアームを地上から遠隔制御することにより搭載実験器機の交換。燃料補給模擬実験、ターゲット衛星捕獲実験等を行いました。

 1997年11月のETS-VIIの打上げから既に14年が経過しているにも係わらず、ETS-VIIの成果を超える宇宙用ロボットはいまだに実現されておらず、ETS-VIIと同等の成果は米国のDARPA<米国国防省高等技術研究所)により2007年11月になってようやく実施されました。
(米国国防高等研究所)が2007年に打ち上げたOrbital Express でようやく実現されています。

  ETS-VII搭載宇宙ロボットシステムの先進性と、それを実現させた組織力、リーダーシップに対して、米国航空宇宙学会(AIAA)からAutomation and Robotics Awardが2011年9月に米国カリフォルニア州ロングビーチ市で開催されるAIAA Space 2011 において表彰されることになりました。

AIAA to present awards at SPACE 2011 Conference in Long Beach

Technical achievement, program management, and sustained service honored

August 25, 2011 – Reston, Va. – The American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA) will present awards recognizing key achievements in space science and technology, space program management, and sustained service to the Institute, at a noon awards luncheon on September 28 as part of the AIAA SPACE 2011 Conference & Exposition, September 27-29, at the Long Beach Convention Center, Long Beach, Calif.

  • The Engineering Test Satellite VII/Japanese Experimental Module Team (ETS-VII/JEM), Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA), will receive the 2011 AIAA Space Automation and Robotics Award. The award is presented for leadership and technical contributions by individuals and teams in the field of space automation and robotics. The ETS-VII/JEM team is being honored for its pioneering work in space robotics, including the operation of the first dexterous robotic arm and the first teleoperation of a space robotic arm from the Earth. The award will be accepted by Mitsushige Oda, leader, Space Robotics, Space Robotics Research Group, JAXA, and Takahisa Sato, director, Security Administration, JAXA.
  • The Hayabusa Team, JAXA, will receive the 2011 AIAA Space Operations and Support Award. The award is presented for outstanding efforts in overcoming space operations problems and assuring success, and to recognize those teams or individuals whose exceptional contributions were critical to situations such as anomaly recovery, crew rescue, etc. The Hayabusa Team is being honored for overcoming numerous anomalies and failures that caused its mission to be extended three years while still achieving success with a first-of-a-kind asteroid sample return mission. The award will be accepted by Junichiro Kawaguchi, mission leader.
  • The Tactical Satellite-3 (TacSat-3) Team, Space Based Hyperspectral Imaging, Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL), Kirtland Air Force Base, Kirtland, N.M., will receive the AIAA Space Systems Award. The award is presented to recognize outstanding achievement in the architecture, analysis, design, and implementation of space systems. The TacSat-3 Team is being honored for demonstrated hyperspectral imaging capability in a small satellite design, specifically expanding the frontiers of U.S. national space capability. The award will be accepted by Thomas Cooley, AFRLTac-Sat 3 program manager.
  • William H. Gerstenmaier, associate administrator for space operations, NASA, Washington, D.C., will receive the 2011 AIAA von Braun Award for Excellence in Space Program Management. The award is presented in recognition of outstanding achievements in the architecture, analysis, design and implementation of space systems. Gerstenmaier will be recognized for exemplary leadership of America's human space flight program, culminating in completion of construction of the International Space Station and safe operations of the space shuttle system.

Additionally AIAA Sustained Service Awards will be presented to Guy Jette, chief financial officer/financial division chief (retired), Space Vehicles Directorate, AFRL, Kirtland Air Force Base, N.M.; and to Peter Kurzhals, director, Systems and Software, Boeing Space Exploration, Huntington Beach, Calif.
