Fox, M. and Long, D. and Baldwin, L. and Wilson, G. and Wood, M. and Jameux, D. and Aylett, R. (2006) On-board timeline validation and repair: a feasibility study. In: Proceedings of 5th International Workshop on Planning and Scheduling in Space, 2006-10-22 - 2006-10-25, Baltimore, USA.
We report on the progress and outcome of a recent ESAfunded project (MMOPS) designed to explore the feasibility of on-board reasoning about payload timelines. The project sought to examine the role of on-board timeline reasoning and the operational context into which it would fit. We framed a specification for an on-board service that fits with existing practices and represents a plausible advance within sensible constraints on the progress of operations planning. We have implemented a prototype to demonstrate the feasibility of such a system and have used it to show how science gathering operations might be improved by its deployment.
