Monitoring and Control of Rocket Test Systems
AOFlexSS is a software toolkit, which uses an expert
systems software platform combined with a custom application integrated system
for health management (ISHM) to develop autonomous monitoring and control
systems, which can be geared towards a specific application. It executes
control sequences after evaluating conditions, including health conditions of
system elements involved in sequence executions. It is composed of a series of
partitions that enhances the use of rapid-prototyping techniques during the
development of a monitor and control platform for hardware systems (i.e.
mechanical, electrical, hydraulic). The toolkit can provide information on the
health of every element of the system, such as sensors, actuators, pipes,
tanks, valves. The toolkit combines
autonomous sequence control, hardware component commanding and health
monitoring in one application.
