ALSES

On the Advanced Launch System/Expert System (ALSES) project, Abacus teamed with a major aerospace company, applying our AI expertise to an effort to analyze the applicability of decision support expert systems to the problems of improving costs, schedule, mission success, and safety of the next generation of U.S. space transportation systems.   The scope of this project encompassed virtually all onboard management decision functions as well as ground systems, including pre-mission planning, checkout and launch services, and post-flight analysis.  The effort was to define viable Vehicle Mission Management System architectures, and their corresponding ground systems, which could evolve with knowledge-based system technology.  ALSES efforts were directed both towards expendable launch systems, like the ALS core and flyback booster, and reusable systems, such as the Space Shuttle.  Abacus methodologies for AI development played a key role in this work as did advanced AI concepts originated by Abacus such as the AI Bus.



The AI Bus is a Layered Architecture.
Abacus applied its AI Bus architecture shown here to the problems of improving costs, schedule, mission success, and safety of the next generation of U.S. space transportation systems.

Notes:

(a) Every box is an object/class. Many are layered themselves. Object-oriented programming provides “glue”.
(b) Layers can only call lower-level layers.
(c) Each box is a language with description whose contents only refer to (immediately) lower layers or to same-layer boxes enforcing modularity, reusability, and network transparency.
