Technical Abstract (Limit 2000 characters, approximately 200 words)

The purpose of this project is to leverage advances in MBSE development technologies pioneered by SPEC Innovations with their cloud-based Innoslate® MBSE product and the advances in engineering design and development of Standard Operating Procedures pioneered by the Center for Air Transportation Systems Research (CATSR) at George Mason University (GMU). The goal of this project is to develop and demonstrate the application of digital assistants with MBSE and advanced SOP design methods on the design of SOPs. The digital assistants reduce modeling and analysis time of the digital-twin. SOPs are frequently overlooked in the development phase and, until now, have not been supported directly for MBSE digital-twin modeling and analysis.

Potential NASA Applications (Limit 1500 characters, approximately 150 words)

The ASOPDA will be initially applied to NASA's aviation safety programs, but should have applicability to all of NASA's work. Other specific digital assistants using this approach can be developed for other areas and missions, including Artemis. A short-list of general areas includes:

-Mission Control (International Space Station, satellites)
-Launch procedures
-Extravehicular Activities (EVA) procedures
-Space and aircraft maintenance procedures
-Medical procedures

Potential Non-NASA Applications (Limit 1500 characters, approximately 150 words)

SOPs are used by many other organizations for developing and operating aircraft. Some of the organizations that have expressed interest in this kind of digital assistant include:

-U.S. Navy Strategic Warfare Syste
-Swiss International Air Lines
-Southwest Airlines
-United Airlines 
-Boeing Commercial Aircraft Group (BCAG)
-Honeywell Technology Center
-Rockwell Collins

Duration: 24
