Swarms of autonomous mining robots will be needed to gather the resources already available on or near the Martian surface. The architecture of their command and control is yet to be defined.

Prior to that Hamilton was directly responsible for the logistics and execution for two NASA In Situ Resource Utilisation (ISRU) field tests operated by PISCES @ UHH; the 2008 NASA Resolve analogue test, and the 2010 International (NASA/CSA/ESA) Lunar Surface Operations ISRU Utilisation Field Test.
