1 Systems Integration Panel Discussion: Challenges and Opportunities in Advancing the State of the Art July 2013 Texas Gulf Coast Chapter Tony Williams 1

2 Todays Panel Interactive Discussion of Systems Integration Challenges and Opportunities –Depending on interest, this might become a thrust area for the chapter with additional actions and activities –Note – Integration challenges and opportunities are not just limited to complex systems Format – –Introduction –Panelist Presentations Jeff Hahn – Emergency Mask Experiences Rob Randall – Baker Hughes Integration Challenges & Lessons Learned –Interactive Discussion – Audience Participation Requested –Wrap-up & Take-aways 2

3 AIAA Initiative for Addressing Complex Systems Integration ASI-WG Charter - The Aerospace Systems Integration Working Group is a forum to promote and contribute to aerospace systems integration across the spectrum of applications ranging from traditional systems to complex systems and systems of systems. Status January, 2012: Aerospace Systems Integration-Working Group (ASI-WG) proposed and formed May, 2012: AIAA TAC officially approved the establishment of ASI-WG Activities (January 2012 to Present) Monthly Teleconference, Yearly Face-to-Face Meeting Developing AIAA G135: Guide to Aerospace Systems Integration Conducting/participating in Panel discussions (CASE, New Horizon, ASM, etc) Presentation to AIAA TCs and PCs INCOSE participation 3

4 INITIAL GUIDELINE NEED Industry need for comprehensive toolset of guidelines and best practices Leverages useful features of previous work Application-agnostic Builds upon fundamental systems engineering concepts Targets revolutionary complex vehicle systems architecture These architectures can produce emergent behaviors full of unpredictable surprises 4 GUIDELINE CHARTER Not development of new standard Guideline built upon current state of art Distributed Industry / Government / Academia work scope Balanced representation of impacted stakeholders Future revisions to capture state of art every 3-5 years GUIDELINE OBJECTIVE * SCOPE BOUNDARY for Initial Guide Sub-levels PLATFORM Interface with other Systems / platforms Consolidated current state of the art guidelines and best practices for systems integration: Technical Centric Planning Execution Assessment Management Guidance to apply to industry accepted practices, tools, techniques &methods to a specific application Limitations / Strengths of each approach AIAA-G135, Aerospace System Integration Guide * Will expand to SoS Integration

5 ASI Working Group ASM 2013 Topic: Aerospace Systems Integration (ASI) Panel Session - Challenges and Opportunities in Advancing the State of the Art Synopsis: This ASI-WG initiative intends to establish a dialog across the major AIAA events around the general topic of Aerospace Systems Integration. Supports AIAAs vision to address one of the most challenging issues facing our community, specifically complex systems integration. We often excel at developing individual technologies, but fail when attempting to integrate these, on schedule and budget, into operating systems. Format: Panel discussion with Aerospace Systems Integration leaders discussing initiatives to improve the state of the art Participants: Laura McGill (Panel Moderator), Vice President, Raytheon Corporation, Vice President, AIAA Standard Committee Ron Kohl, President, R. J. Kohl & Assoc. Anna-Maria McGowan, NASA lead on Morphing Aircraft Systems Program, NASA Langley Dr. David Finkleman, Senior Scientist Center for Space Standards and Innovation Analytical Graphics, Inc. Dr. Brian M. Argrow, Professor, Aerospace Engineering Sciences, Research and Engineering Center for Unmanned Vehicles, University of Colorado Tony Williams (Panel Coordinator), Chief Engineer, Systems Engineering and Integration, Jacobs Engineering, NASA Johnson Space Center Time/Location: Time/Day: 3pm-5:30pm, January 7 (Monday), 2013, Location: Austin 6, Gaylord Texan Convention Center 5

10 Operation Iraqi Freedom ( ) Setting the Context…for OIF, Space is clearly an Integral Element of the Battle Space….however, the evolution of space capabilities, largely from an R&D background, results in fragmented, non- integrated capabilities, with resulting challenges for integration into military operations Source: Command and Control of Space Forces - A Weapon System Approach, 25 Aug 2005, AFSPC/XOZ Presentation to NDIA, T. Williams 2005

11 Source: Command and Control of Space Forces - A Weapon System Approach, 25 Aug 2005, AFSPC/XOZ Presentation to NDIA, T. Williams Global Combat Support System Global Command and Control System Theater Battle Management Core System Combatant Commanders Integrated Command and Control System Space Battle Management Core System Situational Awareness Fused from numerous non-homogeneous sources: Space/Military, intelligence, academia, civil, commercial Format/classification/source/nationality/content/ frequency/quality of inputs highly varied Space System Control Military space systems operate within designated stove-pipes each with unique management and tasking approaches

12 Now known as the JSpOC Mission System (JMS) Source: Command and Control of Space Forces - A Weapon System Approach, 25 Aug 2005, AFSPC/XOZ Presentation to NDIA, T. Williams Complexities: Collaborative architecture composed of multiple systems, with varying missions, stakeholders, lifecycle phases…. Key Objectives – Collecting & integrating disparate information to create situational pictures Creating space tasking framework

13 Challenges Gaining buy-in on vision and participation from quasi-voluntary contributors Defining and managing information interfaces –Data on different networks and classification levels –Formats and frequency highly varied –Lifecycle stages of contributors highly varied –Stakeholder diversity (intel/civil/commercial/DoD/Foreign)

14 Integrating MBSE Into Ongoing Projects: Requirements Validation and Test Planning for ISS SAFER, AIAA Annual Technical Symposium, May 18, 2012, G. Pierce/T. Williams SAFER

15 Integrating MBSE Into Ongoing Projects: Requirements Validation and Test Planning for ISS SAFER, AIAA Annual Technical Symposium, May 18, 2012, G. Pierce/T. Williams Complexities: Multiple Disciplines: Propulsion, Software, GN&C, Electronics, Firmware, EVA operations, Human Safety Criticality Multiple contributing organizations within JSC Engineering Assumption that the SAFER revision is easy and doesnt need same level of rigor Challenges: Gaining buy-in on vision and technical approach from matrixed development team Managing and controlling interfaces

16 Lessons/Summary Two systems at different levels of complexity ChallengesOpportunities/ Lessons Learned Space C2 WSSAFER Gaining buy-in on vision and participation from quasi-voluntary contributors Gaining buy-in on vision and technical approach from matrixed development team Importance of constantly communicating the vision Defining and managing information interfaces Managing and Controlling interfaces Improvements in interface management provide high leverage (Education, tools, methodology, Model- basing)
