LMI Researchers to NASA: Apply DoD's Cost-Effective Sparing Strategies to Next Generation of Critical Ground Systems

 As NASA develops the technologies and innovations to launch the next generation of rockets and spacecraft, the agency should leverage readiness-based sparing (RBS) techniques that are currently deployed successfully by the Department of Defense (DoD), according to LMI researchers investigating space exploration logistics. The findings are part of NASA-funded research presented at the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics' SPACE 2013 conference in San Diego.

The research, authored by LMI logistics experts Julie Castilho,David Peterson, Ph.D., Tovey Bachman, Ph.D., and Rob Kline, explores the benefits of RBS as a way to extend systems-based sparing capabilities to NASA's critical launch-support ground systems in order to achieve the right balance of effectiveness and affordability.
