System for Automated Test and Integrity Verification (SAT-IV)

DOD / NAVY
In response to SBIR topic N08-184, Impact Technologies proposes to develop and demonstrate an automated monitoring system with the ability to detect, identifying, and repair performance problems within a widely distributed submarine combat system. The proposed non-invasive Prognostic and Health management (PHM) system, consisting of layered software applications and selectively chosen hardware signal interfaces, will be capable of identifying anomalous system behavior, interpreting the variety and location of the symptom's cause, and automatically making necessary corrective actions when human input is not required. In this approach, real-time parametric system characterization will accumulate necessary features to facilitate a dynamic learning ability, thereby increasing prediction level confidence. An automated system detection tool will have the ability to integrate new system components into the prediction models, while automated monitoring tools provide the signals necessary to determine system health through a refined proprietary signal verification and validation application. Integrated logistics and maintenance support will allow even the most basically trained crew member to preserve expected system performance. In order to provide next generation submerged vessels the ability to perform their intended missions, these abilities are necessary to ensure peak system performance during combat scenarios.
