Lockheed Martin Corp, Amazon.com Inc, and Cisco Systems Inc partnered to integrate unique human-machine interface technologies into NASA’s Orion spacecraft. It would provide an opportunity to learn how future astronauts could benefit from far-field voice technology, AI, and tablet-based video collaboration.
The Callisto technology demonstration will be integrated into NASA’s Orion spacecraft for the agency’s Artemis I uncrewed mission around the Moon and back to Earth.
Callisto uses Amazon Alexa and Webex by Cisco to test and demonstrate commercial technology for deep space voice, video, and whiteboarding communications.
Lockheed Martin, which designed and built the Orion spacecraft for NASA, is leading the development and integration of the payload.
“Callisto will demonstrate a first-of-its-kind technology that could be used in the future to enable astronauts to be more self-reliant as they explore deep space,” said Lisa Callahan, VP of Commercial Civil Space for Lockheed Martin.
