Abstract

The primary goal of this project is to design and develop an autonomous instrumentation and control (I & C) health monitoring system for space nuclear power applications. The system, once fully developed, will be able to detect system anomalies based on analytical modeling technique using data from existing sensors in the power generator.The primary application for the proposed technology will be with space nuclear reactors and the non-nuclear test systems that are being used for component and system level validation.
