Construction Metrology Standards in Orbiting Facility Construction, Maintenance, and Operation

Abstract

Space based construction metrology has a great potential for monetary and effort savings through the creation and use of open industry standards to support construction automation in space. Current technology for construction automation in space requires either one vendor to provide an entire solution, or an organization, such as NASA, to coordinate the efforts of vendors in tightly integrated projects that lock vendors in for the life of a facility. Open space based construction metrology standards could provide a means to promote competition over the life of a facility by supporting interoperability. LiveView is being designed to meet the goal of construction metrology automation, and may be applicable to special issues arising in an orbital environment.
