Paper Abstract

This paper describes an intelligent user interface that is currently under development. The interface serves as a front end for real-time spacecraft monitoring software. The software operates under circumstances in which neither an intelligent human without automated assistance nor an automated system without intelligence are sufficiently effective. The user interface is supported by dynamic trade-off evaluation (DTE), a new technique that has been developed to automate general types of performance trade-offs in real-time problem solving systems. In this application, DTE is used to perform dynamic input data management for the purpose of determining which input data should be monitored in time constrained situations and how to present the monitoring information to a human analyst who has the ultimate responsibility for the spacecraft. This application has demonstrated that DTE can be used to dynamically vary the data that is monitored, making it possible to detect and correctly analyze all anomalous data by examining only a subset of the total input data. In carefully structured experimental evaluations that use real spacecraft data and real decision making, DTE provides the ability to handle a three-fold increase in input data (in real-time) without loss of performance and to intelligently present the information to a mission analyst.
