The primary NASA applications for the HVI Assessment System include determining damage to the ISS and other space vehicles. Specifically, this includes ISS pressurized modules, ISS non-pressurized structures (radiators, solar array masts, external equipment, externally stored equipment), satellites, deep space manned spacecraft (MPCV, etc.), and crew return vehicles that may be docked at the ISS for extended periods.
Private space companies can benefit from damage location and assessment systems residing on their spacecraft for assessing damage during launch, orbit, parking at the ISS, and return to earth. Satellites (communication, science, military) could also benefit from this capability in order to help assess damage, evaluate cause, and determine remaining useful life after impacts occur.
