BACKGROUND: The objectives of the NASA Inventions and Contributions Board (ICB) Awards are to provide official recognition for those inventions and other scientific and technical contributions that have helped to achieve NASA’s aeronautical, commercialization, and space goals; and to stimulate and encourage the creation and reporting of similar contributions in the future.

The Discovery and Systems Health (DaSH) technical area focuses on understanding, modeling, and reasoning with engineering systems and science data. The work is centered on the emerging-systems engineering discipline of Integrated Systems Health Management (ISHM). Under that umbrella, DaSH explores advances in machine learning, physics modeling, diagnostic and prognostic reasoning, and optimal decision making. DaSH is NASA’s premier ISHM research and development facility, with strengths in design of health management systems, ISHM systems engineering, sensor selection and optimization, monitoring, data analysis, fundamental physics investigations, prognostics, diagnostics, failure recovery, autonomous decision making, and uncertainty management.

NASA PROGRAM FUNDING: Aeronautics Research Mission Directorate (ARMD); Human Exploration and Operations Mission Directorate (HEOMD)
