The AGSE will be able to autonomously:
• Identify the location of the payload outside of the mold line of the launch vehicle,
• Plan a path for the retrieval sub-part of the AGSE
• Execute the planned path to grip the payload and deposit it in the payload container on the vehicle.
In an unpredictable environment, the AGSE will have to be adaptive and reactive accordingly to external conditions and events. In order to monitor changes in external conditions and detect targets of interests, a variety of percepts will be incorporated into the design of the AGSE.
