Remote Agent

How are remote agents used?

How did Remote Agent perform during the NewMaap simulation test?

Remote Agent successfully accomplished its goals during the NewMaap simulation. However, the performance of Remote Agent was even more impressive than that. The simulation itself, which was being used to test Remote Agent, was not working correctly. Remote Agent identified this as a failure, and found a way to complete the test so that the simulation failure did not hinder mission. This stellar performance won Remote Agent a spot on the DS1 mission.
