The proposed framework and software are directly applicable to NASArsquo;s Sustainability Base, Lunar Orbital Platform-Gateway, and the International Space Station to improve the resiliency by identifying and mitigating faults, improving operational effectiveness, and predict degradation. Long-term spaceflights and space habitats are characterized by increased complexity resultant from environmental, physical, and human-in-the-loop challenges that leads to operational uncertainty. The space habitat must be resilient to unexpected anomalies without the need for human intervention.We propose to develop a ldquo;resilient-by-designrdquo; framework demonstrated in a prototype toolkit. nbsp;A digital twin simulation will be used as a virtual test bed for analyzing emerging energy technologies and future scenarios providing situational awareness. The framework will accommodate assured levels of performance, reliability, and resilience under the presence of uncertainty and sparsity in knowledge or data. The methodology to implement a resource management strategy will be based on novel probabilistic threshold conditions. Relevant fault metrics including false alarm rate, missing detection rate, and detection time will be assessed. The prototype software will be developed on the Trick Simulator / core Flight System platforms to facilitate easy transfer to current systems.
