Architectural Concepts for Human-Rated Automation ABSTRACT - Since the beginning of human spaceflight, spacecraft designers have emphasized simplicity of design to minimize failures and have relied on a large ground staff to assist flight crews. As spacecraft ... D. Wagner, D. Dvorak, A. Mishkin, G. Horvath, G. Johnson, G. Jones AIAA Infotech@Aerospace 2010. Atlanta, GA. April 2010 . + PDF CL#10-1291
A Control Architecture for Safe Human-Robotic Interactions During Lunar Surface Operations ABSTRACT - Long duration human-robotic missions to the Moon and beyond will require increased use of automation beyond current Space Shuttle and International Space Station practice. This paper explores the appl ... D. Wagner, D. Dvorak, L. Baroff, A. Mishkin, M. Ingham, M. Bennett, D. Mittman AIAA Infotech@Aerospace 2009. Seattle, WA. April 2009 . + PDF CL#09-1177
An Architectural Pattern for Goal-Based Control ABSTRACT - Time-based command sequencing is the time-honored paradigm for control of spacecraft and rovers in NASA's robotic missions, but the paradigm has been increasingly strained to accommodate today's miss ... M. Bennett, D. Dvorak, J. Hutcherson, M. Ingham, R. Rasmussen, D. Wagner IEEE Aerospace Conference. Big Sky, MT. March 2008 . + PDF CL#07-3810
Goal-Based Operations of an Antenna Array for Deep Space Communication ABSTRACT - NASA is currently evaluating the benefits of transitioning to a highly reconfigurable network of arrayed disk antennas to support an increasing number of deep space missions. The next-generation Deep ... J. Choi, A. Coleman, D. Dvorak, J. Hutcherson, M. Ingham, C.Y. Lee, P. Wolgast iSAIRAS. Los Angeles, CA. Feb 2008 . + PDF CL#07-4366
Comparison of Goal-Based Operations and Command Sequencing ABSTRACT - In robotic space missions the purpose of any operations paradigm is to achieve specific objectives while protecting the health of the space vehicle(s). Unfortunately, in the dominant paradigm of com ... D. Dvorak SpaceOps. Heidelberg, Germany. May 2008 . + PDF CL#08-1059
Goal-Based Operations: An Overview ABSTRACT - Operating robotic space missions via time-based command sequences has become a limiting factor in the exploration, defense, and commercial sectors. Command sequencing was originally designed for comp ... D. Dvorak, M. Ingham, J.R. Morris, J. Gersh AIAA Infotech@Aerospace Conference. Rohnert Park, CA. May 2007 . + PDF CL#07-1392
A Unifying Framework for Systems Modeling, Control Systems Design, and System Operation ABSTRACT - Current engineering practice in the analysis and design of large-scale multi-disciplinary control systems is typified by some form of decomposition -- whether functional or physical or discipline-base ... D. Dvorak, M. Indictor, M. Ingham, R. Rasmussen, M. Stringfellow IEEE System, Man, and Cybernetics Conference. Kona, HI. October 2005 . + PDF CL#05-0805
Achieving Control and Interoperability Through Unified Model-Based Engineering and Software Engineering ABSTRACT - This paper describes the control challenge faced by future exploration systems and outlines a realistic approach to solving it, based upon a unified, principled architectural approach to both software ...
