AbstraktThis paper presents the results of an activity at the European Space Operations Centre (ESOC) on moving towards leveraging Augmented and Virtual Reality (AR/VR) for Spacecraft Mission Operations. Previous activities aimed at assessing feature sets and surveying possible application scenarios on a broader range. This activity specifically targets towards real-world application scenarios in spacecraft mission operations. Experiences from precursor activities and results from this activity indicate that the applicability for day-to-day use depends more on content creation and less on the sophistication of the employed AR/VR devices. Consequently, the activity aimed at providing an end-to-end toolchain integrating AR/VR components where they offer the most utility. The paper presents the conceptual and practical results from the activity including the proof-of-concept implementation.
