The major objective of the Spectral Analysis Automation (SAA) work is to develop an agent-based system that is capable of filtering spectral analysis data and making the selected data available for a complete spectral analysis processing. In particular, we are pursuing a goal-driven data filtering capability that assesses observations for their relevance to mission goals. This type of data filtering will eventually find its way onboard a spacecraft and the filtering will result in less demand for restricted download capabilities and enable onboard or in-situ science event detection and response. The agent-based SAA approach is described in this paper.
