TITUSVILLE, FLORIDA – April 15, 2013 – NASA has installed a launch vehicle telemetry simulator at NASA’s Wallops Flight Facility to test future launch vehicles and spacecraft prior to launching from the Virginia facility. Based on the TelSim™ software package from Command and Control Technologies Corporation, the simulator allows mission planners to model vehicle and mission dynamics under a variety of flight conditions to assess how the flight systems will respond.
“Our TelSim customers love the ease with which they can model failure modes, adverse conditions, and combinations of in-flight problems to test how their flight hardware and software will respond,” said Rodney Davis, CCT Chief Technology Officer. “Every time a vehicle is processed at Wallops, NASA builds a new telemetry model for testing. The TelSim™ system provides a dynamic real-time modeling capability that is very difficult to achieve with conventional record and playback techniques. There isn’t anything else like this on the market today.”
