NASA Constellation Program Ground Operations Simulator
XArc Team Proposes Development of a Ground Operations Commodities Architecture Simulator
Exploration Architecture Corporation in collaboration with Brahe Corporation and Flexsim Software Products, Inc. (Flexsim), propose development of a process flow visualization model for commodities (LO2, LH2, GN2, GHe) joint ground operations at the NASA Kennedy Space Center and Cape Canaveral Air Force Station. The visualization model could be used as a dynamic tool for simulating the end-to-end architecture of commodity production, storage, transportation, delivery, transfer, and recovery operations. With the Flexsim software platform, a discreet event simulator is used to perform visualization analysis and assessments for commodities infrastructure development improvements by simulating infrastructure and process improvement scenarios for the operational interactions of the end-to-end commodities architecture of NASA Constellation Program launch vehicles and Air Force Evolved Expendable Launch Vehicle (EELV) commodities consumption.
