TRACLabs Inc. engineers have developed advanced process control systems for NASA life support system tests over the past ten years. These tests range from a two-year integrated water recovery system test to a 90-day human test of an integrated life support system. TRACLabs Inc. software controlled test hardware via high-level, goal-directed commanding to maintain system stability and respond to faults. TRACLabs Inc. engineers have expertise in extracting domain knowledge from hardware developers and encoding that knowledge in control software.
