To ensure that all shuttle systems are ready for launch, KSC engineers monitor tens of thousands of telemetry measurements. This intense data monitoring occurs constantly during ground processing, peaking in the weeks leading up to launch. KSC engineers developed and deployed a software agent $the NASA Engineering Shuttle Telemetry Agent - to assist in this around-the-clock monitoring. NESTA acts as a software agent for the NASA engineer. For this discussion, we define an agent as rule - based, autonomous software that reacts to its environment and communicates results to a human $the NASA engineer.
