  2. Habitat ISHM Using Non-Invasive Load Management Analytics

    SBC: MHI Energy Information Solutions, LLC            Topic: H6

    We believe a robust approach to integrated system health management (ISHM) design is the application of redundancy. Redundancy is often thought of in terms of hardware; however, functional, analytic, and information redundancy strategies should also be considered.  Modeling sensor information is invaluable for diagnostics and critical path analysis. A total system approach is an efficient mea ...

  10. A Real-Time Fault Management Software System for Distributed Environments


    Fault Management (FM) is critical to mission operations and particularly so for complex instruments – such as those used for aircraft and spacecraft. FM software and methodologies, however, too often have nagging limitations that restrict utility, and research and development continues to grapple relative to advancements in the complex systems they monitor. Modern spacecraft, for example, may hav ...
