IFICS Data Processing for Ground-based Midcourse Defense (GMD)
Agency / Branch:
DOD / MDA
Remote communication systems, such as the In-Flight Interceptor Communications System (IFICS) data terminal, provide essential links for missile defense. IFICS provides the critical communications link between ground fire control and the ballistic missile interceptors while in flight. These terminals will be unmanned and potentially located in regions subject to extreme weather conditions. The ability to predict potential future component faults and respond in advance can significantly enhance the terminal's reliability and availability. IAC proposes to develop a system to perform on-line monitoring for predictive detection and isolation of potential faults for the IFICS data terminal. The system will be based on both software and hardware systems that IAC has developed for data collection and monitoring of gas turbine engine test cells, gas turbine power generating systems, and other remote monitoring applications. A web enabled data collection and analysis system for remote communications of the terminal's status is included in the system. IAC will be supported in it's development by the Harris Corporation, the developer of the IFICS data terminal. Harris will supply technical support and real IFICS data.
