    Humankind is making plans to extend its reach further into the solar system than ever before. As human spaceflight moves beyond low Earth orbit NASA's Advanced Exploration Systems is developing innovative tools to driving these new efforts and address the challenges that arise. Innovative technologies, simulations and software platforms related to crew and robotic autonomous operations, logistics management, vehicle systems automation, and life support systems management are being developed. This talk will outline the pioneering approaches that AES is using to develop prototype systems, advance key capabilities, and validate operational concepts for future human missions beyond Earth orbit.
