The Autonomous Nano-Technology Swarm (ANTS) Project involves the development of a software control system for a community of autonomous data-gathering spacecraft. This MQP developed a modular framework used to test different spacecraft control mechanisms. A demonstration system was implemented using the framework, and successfully tested against a simulated spacecraft. Plans made up of tasks are selected and executed to achieve mission goals, while failures trigger recovery plans.
