Status of selected components on Deep Space 1



Less Detail    More Detail    Explanation   

One valuable capability being tested during the Remote Agent Experiment is its ability to monitor the health status of spacecraft components. Remote Agent does this by inferring the status of those components based on the limited number of internal sensors available. The process involves a kind of "simulation model" and is inspired by the kinds of thinking a human engineer might do to diagnose potential faults while looking at a spacecraft schematic.
