NASA Ames: Prognostics Center of Excellence (PCoE)

Editor’s note: I had the distinct pleasure of meeting with the PCoE coordinator, Kai Goebel, thanks to the Speed2Design program by Littelfuse (I urge you to enter the contest and experience an incredible journey behind the scenes at NASA with some of this country’s brightest and innovative minds). For those of you who say we should not be spending money on space-related research---take another look as you read on and think about what the following can do for safety and reliability in the commercial and industrial sectors regarding battery, IGBT and other critical areas where failure of a component is not an option. Prognostics: An engineering discipline focused on predicting the time at which a system or a component will no longer perform its intended function. Slides from Goebel’s presentation at NASA Ames Prognostics PCoE during my visit At the core of prognostic technol...
