The Logical Extension

AuspiceR Corporation developed the Auspice TLXR (The Logical Extension) software platform to effectively mimic the human decision-making process. Auspice TLX automates operations across extended enterprise systems, where any given infrastructure can include thousands of computers, servers, switches, and modems that are connected, and therefore, dependent upon each other. The concept behind the Auspice software spawned from a computer program originally developed in 1981 by Draper Laboratory for simulating tasks performed by astronauts aboard the Space Shuttle. In 1992, Draper was awarded a NASA contract to build User Interface Language software to enable autonomous operations of a multitude of functions on Space Station Freedom (the station was redesigned in 1993 and converted into the international venture known today as the ISS). The resulting software was certified by NASA and installed on the Space Station's Command and Control and Payload Control Processors, through Marshall Space Flight Center and Johnson Space Center. Known as Timeliner, the software was used for the first time aboard the ISS in June 2003 to autonomously activate and control experiment payloads in the Microgravity Science Glovebox.
