National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA)

International Space Station Dynamics Control Analysis IDIQ   PRIME VENDOR
AIS was recently awarded a prime contract to provide Design Analysis Cycle (DAC) support and Verification Analysis Cycle (VAC) support services to NASA in support of the International Space Station (ISS). The DAC process characterizes vehicle design through analysis of functionality, resource utilization & performance capability. The work scope focuses on characterization of Guidance, Navigation and Control Development (GN&C) development that may be viewed as PDR/CDR level analysis (evolutionary in nature) or "special" analysis and case studies analyzing anomalies reported during operations and the impact of new vehicle components, such as the European ATV.
The VAC process verifies design requirements for each assembly stage and resembles DAC in terms of content and method. VAC focuses on verification of segment and system specification level requirements on an increment by increment basis and is dependent on operational requirements and vehicle configuration (as opposed to evolutionary vehicle design analysis).

The DAC and VAC processes are done using Symbolic Generator-Based Efficient Multibody Dynamics Algorithm (SOMBAT) software. SOMBAT is an algorithmic program used to simulate the dynamics of multiple bodies with large articulating angles in orbit that enables speedy and accurate computations that solve equations of motion of multiple bodies. SOMBAT has an open and expandable format and reduces computation time without sacrificing accuracy and facilitates shorter turnaround time for requirements analysis.

AIS is responsible for SOMBAT development, update and maintenance and does the following work:
  • Implements change requests and validate implementation
  • Develops and maintains subsystem models
    • Controllers, vehicles, environmental models, etc.
    • Updates ISS USOS FSW and SSRMS FSW to enable execution of these models
    • Performs periodic flight reconstruction to validate simulation models
  • Supports and trains users of SOMBAT
  • Provides SOMBAT software configuration management in accordance with the NASA Software Assurance Standard

Web Application Security  Agency Wide Implementation
We were part of an endeavor to establish an agency-wide web application security and compliance program. We provided web application security training and educational content for NASA users, developers, web-masters, and other web application stakeholders. Future aspects of a web application security program may include enumerating and classifying all web applications, securing the web application environment, software security assurance, detecting and remediating vulnerabilities in deployed applications, and changes to policy and procedures to support the overall goals of the program.
