Abstract
ABSTRACT: Future Operationally Responsive Space (ORS) missions will require significant capabilities in onboard and ground-based automation and autonomy, including event detection, planning and scheduling (P & S), and task execution. Onboard P & S is particularly challenging, because of the many constraints involved. For this Phase I effort, Orbit Logic, Inc. and Emergent Space Technologies, Inc., will research and design an autonomy planning suite with plug-and-play capabilities that is capable of solving complex space mission planning problems for ORS missions. The suite"s planning techniques and algorithms, concept of operations, requirements, architecture, and interface specifications will be investigated and defined in Phase I. Phase I will culminate in developing a proof-of-concept demonstration of the planning suite in a relevant on-board simulation environment that paves the way for Phase 2 development, integration and test. BENEFIT: Reduction in satellite planning timelines. More responsive assets to warfighter needs. Beneficial to deep space missions.
