Special Issue Introduction

Space observation and space-based Earth observation of weather, climate, and water resources are developing rapidly due to the increasing availability of multi-satellite systems and technologies. The previous single satellite mission planning is limited in realizing the quick observation of wide areas. Thus, the multi-satellite observation mission is proposed to overcome this limitation and allow for the observation of wide areas in a short or a certain time. Space-based observation plays an increasingly significant role in national economic activities, disaster forecasting, land surveying and mapping, meteorological monitoring, and national defense construction. Space mission planning is a complex and multi-disciplinary activity that spreads from the definition of mission objectives to the end of mission life. Space missions can be categorized into science and exploration, applications, technology development, and planetary missions. The mission objectives in any of these categories depend on the successful design, development, and implementation of emerging technologies in multi-satellite missions. This Special Issue will cover various fundamental research topics related to multi-satellite mission planning.

This Special Issue aims to discuss, but is not limited to, the following topics:
● Optimizing resources and time for satellites observation missions
● Distributed space system
● Emerging concepts for space system
● Autonomous mission planning of Earth observation satellite
● Satellite replacement and task reallocation
● Mission and system architecture for an operational network
● Decision support systems for space-based earth observation
● Fuzzy control of spacecraft proximity operations
● Artificial intelligence for space applications
● Space-based earth observations for disaster risk management
● Multi-satellite mission planning using a self-adaptive multi-agent system
● Multi-satellite mission planning and data analysis
● Emerging technologies and approaches for space-based earth observation
