Research Institution
This proposed research combines Frontier Technology, Inc.'s AFSPC and decision aide experience along with Synergy's insight and knowledge of the Virtual Space Logistics Readiness Center (VSLRC) to develop and demonstrate a decision support system that predicts ground support failures before they occur and their operational impact. The existing VSLRC, an interactive system that increases support to the space systems surface-fighter by providing access to near real-time system operational and equipment status and linking logistics data to its impact on operational readiness, will be the demonstration platform. The FTI/Synergy Team will model the reliability of system components and provide a probability of system failure based on system components and their relationship to the function of the system as well as the impact to the overall mission. The Phase I research effort will determine the feasibility of developing the algorithms into a prototype capability and then integrate PC-based reliability evaluations and decision support tools into a support environment with which analysts can evaluate operational readiness of the system(s). This effort will provide for the space community with real-time access to ground-support space systems' health and operational status data which will improve the efficiency and effectiveness of sustainment and logistic activities.
