DARC: Mars Exploration Robotics

Drone & Aerial Robotics Conference

Mars Exploration Robotics

Stephen Gorevan, Chairman / Honeybee Robotics

The robotic exploration of Mars, once a remote dream, is now undertaken with increasingly sophisticated robotic explorers. Honeybee Robotics, which has contributed to the last 3 generations of NASA’s Mars landers, will share updates from the Mars Science Laboratory and the vast stream of data its sensors are delivering.

Stephen Gorevan co-founded Honeybee Robotics in 1983 and currently serves as the company’s Chairman. He is principally responsible for guiding the company’s direction toward the application of advanced robotic and automation techniques to new applications in the aerospace sector. His responsibilities include new technology development, company and engineering management, design and systems engineering. Mr. Gorevan has over 25 years of experience in leading advanced robotics and automation design, development, and implementation efforts for NASA, defense and industry. He currently serves as a Co-Investigator on the science teams for the Mars Exploration Rovers (MER) and the Mars Science Laboratory (MSL) SAM instrument and is a member of the Venus Science Definition Team.

This event took place on Friday, October 11, 2013 and was presented by the NYU Law Engelberg Center with support from the MacArthur Foundation.
