In this paper, the authors propose an image processing technique for supporting ground-based teleoperation using texture mapped lifelike images, and show some results of a flight experiment conducted as a part of the Manipulator Flight Demonstration (MFD) space shuttle flight experiments operated by NASDA on the STS-85 mission launched on July 17, 1997. In the experiment, the quality of the virtual multiple view images and the time needed for generation were evaluated, and the results have shown an improvement, over existing user interfaces in interpreting the real time status of a remote manipulator system during teleoperation.
