Swarms of space vehicles rely on cooperative operations to perform scheduled tasks. This project proposes to improve the design process and operation control of a multi-agent system by using Hierarchical state machines (HSMs). The research will look into theoretical frameworks and methods to visualize HSMs dynamics representing the behavior of a multi-agent system. How an interactive user interface can help engineers and ground operators to predict how each robot and the system will behave in future situations. A prototype of software simulation will be built to demonstrate feasibility at TRL 2.
