Robust Satellite Range Scheduling

The introduction of uncertainty in Satellite Range Scheduling scenarios has been tackled by existing literature through different suboptimal approaches. The authors have provided a schedule with maximal expected metric (performance) for the case where communication intervals may fail with a certain probability. This chapter extends this model to more complicated cases including those with uncertainty on the priorities and on the duration of these intervals. One of the presented algorithms is also shown to be applicable to deterministic single-satellite scheduling, outperforming existing algorithms.
