Abstract
American GNC Corporation (AGNC) and Louisiana Tech University (LaTECH) are proposing a breakthrough technology consisting of an innovative system for facilitating the monitoring and management of NASA test facilities (such as rocket engine test stands) and widely distributed support systems (WDSS). This technology, termed the Intelligent Distributed and Ubiquitous Health Management System (IDU-HMS) consists of: (a) a fault aware wireless sensor network (WSN) for monitoring valves, vacuum lines, and pressurized subsystems; (b) local wireless data collection and diagnostic units; (c) a main Web service based health and data unit; and (d) portable Web clients. New and powerful algorithms based on the artificial intelligence paradigm are leveraged for conducting automated anomaly detection and diagnostics. Another key innovation is the ubiquitous information capability enabled by mobile communication technologies as well as secure Internet and wireless local area network (WLAN) connections. The architecture is based on a standardized framework for maximum modularity such that it can be integrated into current support, CBM+ type, and control systems at NASA Stennis Space Center (SSC).
