The desire for persistent autonomy in ambitious robotic space missions
has seen renewed interest in the use of on-board planning. This poses
particular challenges in terms of the limited computational power of
radiation-hardened hardware, and also the need to integrate with
functions external to the planner itself. In this paper, we discuss the
development of a forward-chaining temporal planner for use in this
setting. We present results illustrating its lightweight resource
footprint compared to contemporary planners, and its application to two
proposed robotic space scenarios.
