Abstract
The team proposes to develop an onboard, real-time health management capability that monitors a flight control system (for spacecraft, fixed or rotary wing aircraft) in a highly dynamic environment and responds to anomalies with suggested recovery or mitigation actions. The goal of the proposed capability is to take system/component level health status information and aggregate this information across all channels and subsystems to the flight control system for anomaly mitigation, failure accommodation, and control re-configuration, based on mission objectives. In Phase I, the research will be focused on a preliminary design of the component-to-system health capability correlation and the anomaly mitigation strategy. In Phase II, the team will conduct a prototype demonstration for a relevant space vehicle as the target application.
