ObjectivesPrototype an operations assistant utilising pattern detection, event processing, machine learning techniques to improve efficiency, predict failure and enable novel operations / maintenance concepts.DescriptionAn Operations Ground Segment consists ofa complex system of systems, each of which is a source of highthroughput events e.g. telemetry, Out-Of-Limits, operating/data/network system logs. Today the majority of MC systems support a particular subsystem, have limited processing / analysis capabilities (e.g. limit checking, synthetic parameters, filters) and support only stateless operations. Existing analysis tools for dataanalyticsand Machine Learning (ML) techniques are regulated to mission archive data rather than on online systems and data streams.The activity encompasses the following tasks:- Analyse results and outputs of previous CEP and ML studies- Define use cases for both missionoperations and preventative system maintenance which combine the use of event stream analytics and AI-driven reasoning- Trade-off extension / integration options for previously developed tools and define the high-level architecture of an integrated solution- Develop a prototype of the intelligent assistant tool- Demonstrate use cases and identify lessons learned and required future development workProcurement Policy: C(1) = Activity restricted to non-prime contractors (incl. SMEs). For additional information please go to EMITS news “Industrial Policy measures for non-primes, SMEs and RD entities in ESA programmes”.
