Abstract: This paper describes a new way of supporting highly autonomous missions being considered for use on upcoming NASA missions to Europa and Pluto. The spacecraft will have on-board intelligence to detemine whether it is healthy and when ground contact is needed. It will transmit one of 4 messages to the ground instead of normal full engineering telemetry of the spacecraft health.
