Autonomous Planning System
Precision and Flexibility
APS incorporates Specialized Autonomous Planning Agents (SAPAs) for specific planning needs and domain-specific algorithms. Plans from SAPAs are integrated by a Master Autonomous Planning Agent (MAPA), enabling rapid responses to opportunities.
APS updates the command queue based on new event data within a configurable “just-in-time” timeline. It operates independently or collaboratively with ground commands, employing specialized planning agents for responsive mission planning.
Coordinate Multiple Spacecraft
MAPA/SAPA architecture enables flexible constellation planning with event message handling from different sources. APS offers adaptable onboard automation, crucial as more spacecraft require coordinated activities for mission goals.
Modular and Extensible
The MAPA/SAPA architecture offers flexibility, modularity, suitability for onboard use, and extensibility to various satellite planning domains, ensuring efficient autonomous planning and resource allocation for satellite missions.
