Wethersfield, CONN. — Qualtech Systems, Inc. (QSI) has been selected by Honeywell Space Systems , Phoenix, Arizona for development of a demonstration system which could provide remote, model based diagnostics for the International Space Station (ISS). For this project, Qualtech will provide its commercially available “TEAMS” (Testability Engineering and Maintenance System) tool set which provides state of the art “failure/effects modeling”, diagnostic analysis, and model based run-time diagnostics and intelligent reasoners. Qualtech will also leverage its current NASA research program for “telediagnosis” which provides an architecture for remote monitoring of large scale, complex systems such as the ISS. This new architecture, called TEAMS-RDS (TEAMS-Remote Diagnostic Server) will demonstrate a continuous assessment of ISS system health and isolate any failed or failing component for presentation to NASA Mission Control operators.
The TEAMS-RDS system can also “serve” intelligent troubleshooting and repair procedures to ISS flight controllers to resolve any residual fault isolation ambiguity using support equipment, manual test, and inspections in an efficient, optimized sequence. The TEAMS-RDS system provides a web-based, “server to thin-client” Integrated Diagnostic solution, capable of managing and processing multiple concurrent “clients” (or ISS systems).
Qualtech technology has many space and commercial applications, including patient health monitoring, automotive diagnosis, and as a service in emerging e-commerce systems. The Honeywell and Qualtech team combines 14 plus years of ISS experience in large scale systems integration with state of the art diagnostic modeling/analysis, intelligent/dynamic diagnostic reasoning, and scaleable web based server diagnostic solutions.
Qualtech Systems, Inc. is a leading provider of advanced Diagnostics/Testability, Reliability and Maintenance software, as well as engineering project and research services. QSI provides its software and research services to a wide range of customers including Boeing, Lockheed Martin, Messier Dowty, Sikorsky, AIL, NASA, Army Research Office, and the Naval Surface Warfare Center.
