The Space System Engineering Database (SSED)


Presented by: Jonathan F Binkley, The Aerospace Corp.


The Space System Engineering Database (SSED) is The Aerospace Corporation’s enterprise database developed to systematically input, organize, and retrieve space system information. The SSED uses a Sybase database engine with a web-based interface for input and output. The primary sections of the SSED are the Launch Log Domain (vehicle and launch specific information on all space flights back to Sputnik 1) Anomaly Domain (over 20,000 launch and space vehicle anomaly records ranging in severity from negligible to catastrophic), and Document Domain (over 10,000 programmatic, pre/post fight review, failure reports, etc. referenced to space systems and anomalies). This talk will focus on the Anomaly domain and how it is integrated into Aerospace’s lessons learned system.
