An Integrated Architecture for Advanced Environmental and Physiological Monitoring 2005-01-2874
The fundamental objective of this paper is to overview an integrated hardware and software architecture for advanced environmental and physiological monitoring. The proposed architecture is currently being considered as a recommended standard by the International Consultative Committee for Space Data Systems (CCSDS). The architecture provides the necessary infrastructure to enable research and engineering personnel the capability to incorporate disparate monitoring devices and sensors into a single wireless data assimilation system. The long-term objective is to achieve safer long-duration human space travel by using wireless radio frequency (RF) technology to enable easily deployable monitoring systems.
