Resilient and fractionated cyber physical system
Bursch, Daniel W.
MetadataShow full item record
Reliance on aging monolithic overhead physical systems with assurance of resilience is an ongoing critical discussion. The White House has issued a strategy to evolve this system of systems technology to meet growing information and knowledge needs. Fractionated Space Cyber Physical Systems is part of a novel concept emerging from a field of hyperconnected networks designed to withstand risk and address aforementioned needs. The transition from a monolithic design into alternative resilient designs will better reflect the utility of a system to the commander. Resilience is a characteristic meant to assure performance even within a higher probability of risk. Resilience encourages availability regardless of the perceived threat in the increasingly dynamic environment. Traditional systems incorporate the sub-systems required to deliver the common operational picture. Reduction of those integrated sub-systems is unacceptable; therefore, introducing a decentralized architecture is going to carry with it the requirement of a seamless interaction despite being separated. Decentralization is a design process that allows a constellation capability to seek more nodes than what would be normally available when residing in the same payload. This is a measure of design success that enhances the evaluation of a system’s capability and its ability to survive risk, its resilience.
