  • Space-based networking technology developments in the Interplanetary Network Directorate Information Technology Program

    Publication Year: 2006, Page(s):8 pp. - 20
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (142 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    We present advanced technology developments in space networking achieved under the Interplanetary Network Directorate Information Technology Program. Progress has been made in three primary areas: (1) distributed on-board scheduling as it applies to communications; (2) middleware services; and (3) communications protocols. Demonstrations of these capabilities have been provided using a simulation ... View full abstract»

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1451 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    Exploration missions will achieve a sustainable human-robotic presence in space and on the surface of the Moon and of Mars. Sustained operations require higher performance, which in turn implies a higher degree of asset autonomy. For example, construction, maintenance, or in-situ resource utilization will be accomplished by efficiently executing complex tasks in the absence of long-haul teleoperat... View full abstract»

    This paper reviews the Internet-inspired security work on delay tolerant networking, in particular, as it might apply to space missions, and identifies some challenges arising, for both the Internet security community and for space missions. These challenges include the development of key management schemes suited for space missions as well as a characterization of the actual security requirements... View full abstract»

  • An experiment on skill degradation and recovery for safe MSS operations

    Publication Year: 2006
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (69 KB)

    Summary form only given. SMP is a research project to study how skills degrade and recovery. The operation of the wide variety of manned and unmanned space vehicles and their associated supporting docking and robotics systems calls for demanding training of crews both on ground and on orbit. Crew must achieve and maintain proficiency in these complex skills. Failure to maintain critical skill prof... View full abstract»

    For manned long-duration missions to the Moon and Mars, there is a need for a Mission Execution Crew Assistant (MECA) that empowers the cognitive capacities of human-machine teams during planetary exploration missions in order to cope autonomously with unexpected, complex and potentially hazardous situations. MECA requirements are being derived via a cognitive engineering method, which addresses o... View full abstract»

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (69 KB)

    Summary form only given. Future manned exploration will involve increasingly complex missions in space and on planetary surfaces. Flight crews will need to be largely self-reliant in routine operation with ground support providing rapid expert consultation and ad hoc support. Creating and executing such control strategies requires machine intelligence, coupled tightly with human intelligence, to b... View full abstract»

    Visions for future space exploration have long term science missions in sight, resulting in the need for sustainable missions. Survivability is a critical property of sustainable systems and may be addressed through autonomicity, an emerging paradigm for self-management of future computer-based systems based on inspiration from the human autonomic nervous system. This paper examines some of the on... View full abstract»

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (167 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    One of the characteristic features of today's high performance computing systems is a physically distributed memory. Efficient management of locality is essential for meeting key performance requirements for these architectures. The standard technique for dealing with this issue has involved the extension of traditional sequential programming languages with explicit message-passing, in the context... View full abstract»
