Model-Based Off-Nominal State Identification and Detection


Software Development Benefits

  • MONSID is platform agnostic. It can work on Windows, Linux, and macOS.
  • Available in 3 languages - C++ 11, C#, and C 99.
  • It's compact and modular allowing you to customize MONSID to your application/platform.
  • Small footprint, lightweight, minimal RAM requirements for use on laptops, single board computers, SOC, or MOC.
  • Designed for real-time monitoring and can be used in conjunction with existing fault response mechanisms.

Fault Management System Design Benefits

  • Because MONSID relies on models of nominal behavior, it’s easier to incorporate fault management into your system from day 1.
  • Offers higher fault coverage than traditional fault monitors/limit checkers.
  • Detect unknown, surprise behavior.
  • Analyze fault diagnosis performance using model topology.
  • Iterative diagnostics can suggest new behaviors to model for even better prediction.
  • The same model can used in-situ as well as in ground operations. This makes your investment in modeling go farther.

Integration and Test Benefits

  • Supports early V&V and Test.
  • Find problems earlier and in related systems.
  • Gain a better understanding of hardware and software configuration.
  • Effective even for sensor-poor systems.
  • Can uncover control software and operation errors.

Operations / Production Benefits

  • Robust to mission design changes; MONSID engine is reusable, only models change with application.
  • Real-time monitoring of production systems can help anticipate and schedule maintenance cycles and optimize operations; suggest adjustments, slowing, stopping; avoid component failure and unexpected downtime.
  • Pre-production evaluation can result in better hardware and interoperability, more confidence, more robust functioning, better results for projects.
  • Proactive diagnosis helps to avoid total failure and associated downtime.
  • Identify and correct existing suboptimal code, hardware, firmware and processes for continual improvement cycles.
  • Provide deep-dive analysis of collected telemetry to support system operators.
  • Easier to integrate and work with complex systems.
