AbstractSpacecraft autonomy is provided by placing control authority for functional operations on board the spacecraft. A three-step control process utilizes sensed information to determine and initiate appropriate control actions. A critical design feature is the selection of appropriate sensory data and the means by which it is passed to the onboard control resource. This paper summarizes some major steps in the evolution of autonomous design features for planetary exploration spacecraft.
