Abstract:

The system architecture task 1 analyzed the current process used to make an assessment of engine and component health after each test or flight firing of an SSME Space Shuttle Main Engine 2 developed an approach and a specific set of objectives and requirements for automated diagnostics during post-fire health assessment and 3 listed and described the software applications required to implement this system. The diagnostic system described in this report is a distributed system with a database management system to store diagnostic information and test data, a CAE package for visula data analysis and preparation of plots of hot-fire data, a set of procedural applications for routine anomaly detection, and an expert system for the advanced anomaly detection and evaluation.
