ASTRIC – Astro-Terrestrial Robotic Interaction and Control, focused upon the design of operating systems and cybernetics for management of heterogeneous cooperative robotic networks for use in space-based engineering tasks including asteroid operations.
ASTRIC is based with a distributed-site laboratory that has a central hub in the Aerospace Research Technology Center at South Urals State University in Chelyabinsk, Russia. Other participants include scientists at several institutions in diversified nations:
- University of Barcelona (Spain)
- Michigan Tech (USA)
- Surrey and Strathclyde Universities (UK)
- Tabriz University (Iran)
- South Urals State University and Saint Petersburg State University (Russia)
