The aim of the project is to analyze the use of AI technologies in order to redesign the operation concept for future ESA mission with a more systematic approach. It can relay on three high level requirements; these requirements prove to be more and more compelling in the framework of future long duration missions for the interplanetary exploration and the new missions involving an high number of platforms, including the most challenging formation flying.

The main requirements can be summarized as follows:

  • Enhance the capability to manage uncertainties during the mission (including aspects related to react with the appropriate recovery plan to the presence of faults) 
  • Exploit to its outmost the science opportunities
  • Reduce overall operation costs (platform and payloads)
