This paper introduces at a high level the concept of Autonomic Robotics based on the Autonomic Computing paradigm with the aim to achieve a systematic means to obtaining self-managing and autonomous robotic craft software for future space missions. It briefly reflects on the author’s research that took place in the noughties with NASA GSFC, in particular on the ANTS concept mission Autonomic Computing stream before briefly highlighting the authors research streams in the twenty-tens moving towards NewSpace or Space 2.0. Three specific streams of research within this area are summarized; cooperation between the autonomic robotic craft, an autonomic robotic architecture (and case-studies to derive such) and the development of an Autonomic Systems capability model for CubeSats.
