The TET-1 satellite was launched on July 22nd, 2012, to test and demonstrate the space readiness of new hardware components. Eleven experiments are running in space since then. The mission planning system (MPS) that provides the TET-1 satellite with its tele-command timelines during the OnOrbitVerification (OOV) phase is presented: Based on a strategic one-year experiment plan provided in advance by an external industry partner, MPS collects all relevant information necessary to build a sequence of flight procedures, called timeline, for a time range of roughly a week, on a day-by-day basis. In contrast to the TerraSAR-X/TanDEM-X MPS or the Incremental Planning System, where several software components convert incoming orders into commandable files, a slim set of tools was decided to be used for the TET-1 mission, combined in PINTA (Program for INteractive Timeline Analysis). Necessary data was imported using the plug-in mechanism of PINTA that uses interfaces to several partners. Having all information available, scheduling itself was done by running the planning algorithms provided by Plato, GSOC's generic library for modeling and solving planning problems. An assembly of various planning algorithms, individually configurable and referencing one another, creates the necessary timeline entries of flight procedures. Due to the high flexibility of the planning system it was possible to support various changes in the pre-planned onboard timeline on short notice. Additionally, an outlook on further extensions of the current MPS is given, that enables even more flexibility in terms of data acquisition and are relevant for the upcoming FireBIRD mission, which includes the TET-1 spacecraft after the OOV operations phase.
