Abstract : The Advanced Satellite Workstation (ASW) was proposed and started by the author in 1986 as a low level independent research and development effort. Its goal was to evaluate the utility of expert systems in military satellite testing operations. It quickly became apparent, however, that the rule base was too limited. This project's goal was then modified to capture as much of the factory and flight experience as possible in an electronic, updateable medium. The resulting electronic library would then permit much deeper insight into the satellite's operation and more confidence in understanding and expanding the expert system rule base. The first on-line demonstration was done during June 1990 in one of the Air Force's Mission Control Centers, and evaluations of ASW are currently underway. Preliminary results are very encouraging.
