Abstract:
This paper describes an expert system prototype which approaches some issues of satellite command and control. The task of the prototype system is to assist a spacecraft controller in maneuvering a geosynchronous satellite for the purpose of maintaining an accurate spacecraft pointing angle, i.e. station keeping. From an expert system’s point of view, two features of the system are notable. First, a tool for automated knowledge acquisition was employed. Because the domain experts were in Maryland while the AI experts were in California, a means to automate knowledge acquisition was required. Second, the system involves a blend of simulation and expert systems technology distributed between a DEC VAX computer and a LISP machine (a special purpose AI computer). This kind of distribution is a plausible model for potential real-world installations.
