InControl offers a flexible platform with the ability to customize and automate data collection and report generation as satellites move through the production line and into final system-level testing.
Systems and test engineers use hardware or software simulators to support test efforts as the spacecraft progresses through subsystem development and enters assembly, integration and test (AI&T). Engineers can also integrate test procedures from subsystem development into system-level tests, resulting in increased reuse.
InControl is highly customizable with a gateway interface capability that facilitates the use of simulators, ground terminals and third-party test equipment and tools with ease.
The procedure platform automates testing and archives data available for analysis using the system’s existing JADE™ data display or through external tools.
Test engineers can create customized, formatted repor ts containing as-run procedures, data and test results and graphic displays that generate automatically during tests.
Once a satellite is on orbit, operators can view data collected by InControl during AI&T and easily compare operational data with integration data for a more complete view of the space asset.
