TechConnect Innovation Program

Integrated Scheduler-Planner And Reactive Executive (I-SPAREX)

Red Canyon Software Inc., CO, United States

TECHNOLOGY SUMMARY

I-SPAREX is a layered autonomous software flight system employing continuous, model-based planning and reactive sequencing engines. A single, shared spacecraft domain model editor allows system engineers to easily encode domain (or environment) information, define appropriate actions and spacecraft behaviors, and detect inconsistencies or errors during the verification of rules.

Primary Application Area: Aerospace & Defense

Technology Development Status: Prototype

Technology Readiness Level: TRL 3

FIGURES OF MERIT

Value Proposition: I-SPAREX is capable of replacing procedure script generators, while advancing procedure verification by using model-based, architected type and value constructs during operations. The extendable user interface which directly-maps model development to plan actions improves usability while also setting up a framework for multi-agent development and reusable components and platforms.
