Abstract: This paper addresses a concept for the test and evaluation of automation, robotics and machine intelligence (commonly referred to as artificial intelligence (AI)) for command and control of space systems. Using AI to reduce mission operations costs has been proposed and implemented (although sparsely) over the past twenty years, but has never been fully accepted by satellite operators or project managers. Several reasons for this ?non-acceptance? exist, but one reason is seen as being paramount. The risk factor in using AI tools is much too high. The space industry routinely tests spacecraft hardware and software to reduce risk, and has invested significant capital developing special facilities to certify that a spacecraft is mission ready. Until now, no such facility was available for testing AI tools and applications, until the development of the Spacecraft Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (SAIL). SAIL is implementing a capability to test AI tools on a fully functional, onorbit spacecraft. Since the test spacecraft was the first flight in a constellation of ten, an operational baseline is being established by human operators controlling the remaining nine spacecraft. Validation of AI applications will be accomplished by measuring an AI tool?s performance against the operational baseline...
