The Multimission VICAR Planner (MVP) system is an AI planning system which constructs executable image processing programs to support Operational Science Analysis (OSA) re- ~j uests made to the Jet Propulsion Laboratory PL) Multimission Image Processing Subsystem (MIPS). MVP accepts as input: image files and a high-level specification of desired corrections, enhancements, output properties (such as for mosaics). MVP then derives: unspecified but required processing steps, relevant image processing library programs, and appropriate parameter settings for such programs - constructing an executable image processing program to fill the image processing request. MVP is currently available to analysts to fill requests and reduces the effort to fill radiometric correction, color triplet reconstruction, and mosaicking tasks by over an order of magnitude.
