Ensuring safe and reliable technology is the key to sustaining NASA's spaceflight systems. With the use of advanced health management tools such as the proposed EHM system, NASA programs have the potential to increase capabilities and reduce operational costs. Some programs that stand to benefit include; the Aviation Safety Program (AvSP), Integrated Vehicle Health Management (IVHM) and Exploration Systems Mission Directorate (ESMD). Because programs like the AvSP already have initiatives for across the board improvements, Nokomis' health monitoring and electronic fault prediction system will integrate well into present procedures. In addition to the IVHM program and applications in commercial aircraft, the ESMD seeks better tools and methods to ensure safe launch, flight, and mission operation of the many components of the overall Constellation and Exploration architecture. Of interest for these applications are new technologies that can provide better monitoring and diagnosis capabilities while minimizing sensor mass and volume requirements such as those provided by the proposed system.
In addition to NASA applications, Nokomis has identified customers in the commercial market for aeronautics health management. Because safety and system health is an important issue for vital electronics used in aerospace across the board, the system proposed in this effort has the ability to meet the needs of an ever-growing commercial market space. Commercial space systems companies developing sensor systems and launch systems will benefit from this technology in order to improve the reliability of and protect expensive systems from catastrophic failure. Compared to current market health management solutions, Nokomis is prepared to increase cost-savings, performance standards and system safety. Because of these immense advantages, Nokomis is well positioned to address the market needs of the commercial aeronautics industry.
