Automated planning has been applied to numerous fields such as computer games, industrial robotics and even highprofile missions like planning and scheduling activities for Martian rovers. A current trend among the researchers is to apply automated planning in multiple space systems that work together in a coordinated fashion so as to attain highly complex mission goals. Even though automated planning and scheduling algorithms are mature in industrial scenarios and robotics, little consideration has been given to multiple-agent space applications. In this paper, we describe the development of a domain configurable planner which can be used for different space mission comprising of multiple systems i.e. satellites or rovers. The multiagent planning systems uses agent based modeling techniques, hierarchical task network (HTN) planning and a mixed approach from centralized and distributed planning. The initial results from the prototype planner are also discussed.
