This paper describes the research effort being undertaken at UA/NASA Space Engineering Research Center (SERC) towards a general-purpose intelligent robotic vehicle system (IRVS) for Lunar or Martian robotic missions. The IRVS has been designed based upon the Stewart Platform Independent Drive Environmental Robot (SPIDER) developed by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). The goal is to use the unique structure of the SPIDER robot to build a powerful work platform which can accommodate the execution of various tasks for space exploration. The focus of the current IRVS development is on site surveying, prospecting and resource assessment tasks required by the NASA Artemis project.
