Abstract
A mission planning system for scheduling the operations of one or more ground stations in order to optimize overall system communications with a plurality of satellites. The mission planning system comprises a digital processor in communication with each ground station, with the digital processor acting to assess the benefits and penalties acting in the system as a whole over a given time horizon. A systemwide cost function evaluated by the processor generally compares resultant SNR and slewing penalties for achievable communications, and provides a control vectorⅉ(t) for each ground station determined through an optimization process, in order that various physical constraints and weighting factors pertinent to an individual ground station may be incorporated and accommodated as the digital processor optimizes overall system communications.
