Development of anthropomorphous robotic systems (ARSs) faces the following challenges: selection of space operations performed by robots; creation of their typical movements' libraries; development of optimal design for robot to execute the programmed operations as well as intelligent control system, enabling the robot to operate both in manual and autonomous mode. To meet these challenges, virtual environment technologies can be the most effective. Their application allows realizing virtual interactive 3D-based research without carrying out full-scale experiments and building expensive models. The current status of information technologies make it possible to provide high accuracy of virtual simulation models for both visual and dynamic characteristics. Virtual reality technologies prove to be also effective in further exploitation of ARSs. Mode of the induced virtual reality can provide control of operations, executed by robot, using virtual model, and in so doing the random angles which are unavailable in reality.
The paper reviews the issues of studying the application feasibility of virtual 3D models to exercise flight opera-tions with ARSs.
