This paper introduces two benchmark problem sets based on actual space mission operations. Each benchmark problem set includes problem generators, declarative specification of the problem(s), and one or more simulations. The first mission is the DATA-CHASER shuttle payload that flew onboard space shuttle Discovery flight STS-85 in 1997, and demonstrated the ability of automated mission planning to both reduce commanding effort and improve science return. The second mission is the Citizen Explorer Mission (CX-1), which is a small, earth orbiting satellite currently being prepared for launch. We include three problem classes of increasing complexity (and realism) for each mission scenario: planning and scheduling with states and resources (PSSR), PSSR with functional dependencies, and PSSR with functional dependencies and plan quality. The actual implementations are available for download from web sites at the University of Colorado, which designed and operated these spacecraft and missions.
