Title: Automated Test Generation in Intelligent Systems (GENISYS)
Agency: NASA
Contract: NAS2-02104
Award Amount: $599,996.00


EDAptive Computing, Inc. (EDAptive) and the University of Kansas (KU) propose a unique and commercially viable solution to the problem of testing upgraded hardware and software components in place, within the system that contains them. Such upgrades occur frequently in NASA satellite and Space Station embedded systems. Our proposed solution implements specification-based testing techniques to automatically generate test sequences and expected results from component requirements models, and translates the generated tests, initially generated for application to the component interface, for application to the interface of the overall system. Our solution will considerably reduce the time and effort required for in place testing of components in real-time and embedded computing systems, thereby ensuring their safe and reliable operation. Our proposed Automated Test Generation in Intelligent Systems (GENISYS) project leverages the following:i. An emerging System Level Design Language (SLDL), Rosetta, ii. EDAptive?s VectorGen? tool, to automatically generate test sequences and expected results starting from specifications, and Syscape? tool to intuitively capture system specifications,iii. EDAptive and KU?s expertise in formal methods, specification languages and test generation techniques, andiv. KnowledgeKinetics (K2), an enterprise collaboration tool suite.Furthermore, our commercialization and business plan has been refined and validated through a peer review.
