epicTCInnovationAwardsEmbeddable Programmable Instrumentation Circuit (EPIC)
The EPIC has a comprehensive fully open multi-purpose architecture that does much more than data logging. The EPIC performs reasoning, baselining, diagnostics, prognostics, messaging and timely intelligent control actions. The EPIC is designed for embedded data collection and analysis of health states to determine the current maintenance condition of equipment. The electronics may be embedded in a small chassis or mounted in the backshell of MIL-SPEC connectors used in electronic systems and wiring harnesses. The EPIC can be used in multiple instances in connectors or wiring. Two or more EPIC can operate separately or in a cooperative network to more completely assess the health status of a total system.

D3 Information RecorderD3
Imagine the value of a multi-media recording/processing system, which replaces several legacy systems and adds features for data- centric communications. Development of the Digital Data Download (D3) was a NAVAIR Phase II SBIR project. A project like the D3 would normally take five years to move through the concept, competition, award, and delivery processes. MSI, with support from a major aerospace manufacturer, delivered a flight-ready unit in just 3 years.

The D3 selectively records and processes several types of media and data according to contextual and situational requirements. The D3 goes far beyond simply recording. A new architecture, which employs advanced artificial intelligence techniques, processes data into information and information into knowledge. On schedule, on event, or on demand, the D3 sends war-fighters up to the minute reports. For the first time, operations crews shall be made aware of the need for fuel, weapons and repairs before an aircraft lands. Unlike stovepipe recorders, the D3 gathers and fuses data from multiple data sources before departure or during a mission.

Addressing the problem of obsolescence often plaguing military and commercial airlines, the D3 is designed as a plug-and-play unit for out-of-date recorders. The D3 is able to provide the simulated responses necessary for training and drills. From operations to simulators, the D3 provides the missing link for data.
