NASA Sends Artificial Intelligence To Test Satellite
National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) engineers sent a new artificial intelligence software package – the Livingstone Version 2, designed to detect and diagnose satellite instruments and systems failures – to the Earth Observing One satellite, Satellite Today has learned. If successful, the AI would eliminate some of the need to troubleshoot from the ground.
The EO-1 satellite was launched in November 2000 specifically to act as a test bed for new technologies. The software will monitor the satellite’s systems continuously, reporting to ground controllers anything it determines to be the potential root cause of systems failures and giving ground operators a diagnosis of what may have gone wrong.
