Earth observation satellites are space sensors which acquire data, compress and record it on board, and then download it to the ground. Because of the use of more and more sophisticated compression algorithms, the amount of data resulting from an acquisition is more and more unpredictable. In such conditions, planning satellite data download activities(More)
In this paper, we show how decision-making on data down-load plans can be shared between ground and onboard planning to face uncertainty about the volumes of data generated by observations: flexible plans are produced on the ground when volumes are uncertain, together with commitments to high-priority data downloads; these plans are then adapted on board(More)
