Integration of Dynamic Models in Range Operations 2004-01-3083
This work addresses various real-time model interactions in order to make an efficient Internet based decision support tool for Shuttle launches. This tool depends on launch commit criteria coupled with physics based models. Dynamic interaction between a wide variety of simulation applications and techniques, embedded algorithms, and data visualizations are needed to exploit the full potential of modeling and simulation. This paper also discusses web based 3-D graphics and its application to range safety. The advantages of this dynamic model integration are secure accessibility and distribution of real time information to other NASA centers in support of launch operations.
