Center Independent Research & Development: GSFC IRAD

New FY17 Virtual Flight Instrument Model

Completed Technology Project

Project Description

Project Image  Virtual Flight Instrument Model

This key objective of this IRAD is to develop a complete simulatable and executable flight instrument System Model of the EJSM Thermal Radiometer Instrument. This modeling activity will include each of the instrument’s subsystems.The innovation will come from the fact that this has never been done for a flight instrument at GSFC. The success of this IRAD will hopefully encourage this approach for future flight instrument development.

The objectives will be met as follows: Review the EJSM Thermal Instrument specifications with EJSM PI. Obtain thermal control models from the discipline thermal engineer. Create and simulate VHDL-AMS models of each subsystem in the instrument. Combine all subsystems models as a whole as well as simulate the complete flight instruments as well as its subsystems.
