Immortal Data

Immortal Data offers an affordable, patented solution to the data collection and recovery demands of the burgeoning and budget-minded aerospace industry. We provide needed infrastructure to the ever expanding space industry.

Introduction

Our intent is to provide space-faring platforms with affordable, light weight, compact, modular hardware/software systems to gather and share sensor data.

Configured as a system of systems, our products protect data in the event of failure so it can be recovered for root cause analysis.

Immortal Data presents our patented Distributed Black Box™ technology which collects, stores and safeguards data - even up to the last seconds of a catastrophic event.

Highlights

  • IDI is poised to supply technological solutions for future government regulation of the new space industry.
  • The Federal Aviation Administration’s Office of Commercial Space Transportation (FAA/AST) awarded grant funding.
  • New Mexico Institute of Technology chose Immortal Data’s data acquisition system to test a new Structural Health monitoring sensor. Our first space faring payload has been delivered.
  • The NASA Spaceflight Opportunities Office is working with the FAA/AST to fund our payload and others as related to their future needs.

Problem

Current black box technology made for aircraft is not going to work in the new space industry. Flight recorders (AKA Black Boxes) on aircraft are heavy and often untraceable in hostile environments.

Practices to determine the cause of disasters currently rely on telemetry, debris mapping, and backward simulation to reconstruct the event and determine the cause and responsibility. There was no telemetry at the time of the space shuttle Columbia disaster, answers were tough to find, came late and at a high cost.

Data transmissions from a space vehicle to the ground during the last few seconds are either unclear or insufficient.

Orbital assets damaged or destroyed by debris have no records of the event, so neither cause nor liability can be ascertained.

Innovative Solution

Our solution to existing problems of legacy black-box technology features three major innovations:

  • Reconfigurable, light weight, compact, distributed black-box modules that provide inter-module communications in the form factor of a smartphone.
  • Paradigm breaking data acquisition and storage capability that supports any sensor; sharing, preserving and protecting data such as cockpit voice, vehicle mechanics, skin materials, engine health and more.
  • A GPS sensor that will gather position information after a catastrophic incident providing investigators information to determine cause and liability.
Immortal Data- The Solution

Our Product Line

ShipsDAQ - Data Acquisition Module

ShipsDAQ - Data Acquisition Module

Our Data Acquisition Module or microDaq uses COTS parts with our proprietary software to collect, store and distribute data. This product serves customers operating in Low Earth Orbit (LEO).

  • Small & light-weight
  • Low powered
  • Well-tested & reliable hardware
ShipsLog 4.0

ShipsLog 4.0

Sharing data from our ShipsDAQ, ShipsLog makes raw data streams available to other modules for display, downloading, storage or analysis.

Our Vendor Agnostic Interface™ features a driver plug-in that allows us to access data acquisition hardware whether from our own ShipsDAQ or from other vendors. Because of this feature we can, for example, interface with NMEA-2000 protocol-based devices such as GPS units and inertial sensors, which are much utilized in aviation.

ShipsStore

ShipsStore

ShipsStore accumulates and stores sensor data in real time. With multiple sensors and data acquisition modules reporting to multiple ShipsStore units, data reconstruction is possible if only a single ShipsStore unit is recovered intact after a catastrophic event.

If your platform encompasses 500 sensors and 100 ShipsStore units and most ShipsStore units are rendered inoperable after a catastrophic event, the recovery of one ShipsStore unit may allow the reconstruction of data from all sensors.

With a large number of approved claims, our patent for ShipsStore strategically positions us within the market.

Distributed Black Box TM

Distributed Black Box™

When configured as a system of systems, our modules create redundant collections of sensor data that contain up-to-the-second information from across the sensor array.

Data can be shared and analyzed during normal operations or reconstructed after a major incident.

Consulting Services

Consulting

Immortal Data provides consulting services for the new space marketplace.

  • As a valued partner of Dubois and King, we are responsible for the Spaceport section of the redesign and expansion of the Las Cruces Airport.
  • We provided consulting services to EXOS Aerospace on an Automated Multi-User Launch Checklist.
  • Other consulting engagements included expert advisory support to Northrop Grumman and Standard Technology.

Business Model

The proliferation and expansion of entrepreneurial launch and satellite companies create a need for affordable data acquisition systems and Black Box Solutions. Legacy suppliers are not prepared to meet this need.

Immortal Data’s business model supplies a solution for “Black-Box” needs of the new space industry. Our product line is designed to support insurance companies ...government regulators...accident investigators and others who need to understand “what happened.”

Immortal Data's intention is to bring to market a solution to answer: “What happened?”

Our targets are those companies that are venturing into space. Companies like United Launch Alliance, SpaceX, and Virgin Galactic, to name a few, will need to comply with the growing regulatory environment. Immortal Data’s product line supports their ability to comply with emerging regulations.

Regulations are already evolving. The FAA/AST, Space Force, Air Force and others are currently discussing the challenges of regulating space operations and encouraging emergent solutions. One example is an Automatic Dependent Surveillance System (ADS-B) for space to merge space traffic seamlessly with commercial aviation.

Our patented Distributed Black Box™ is designed to be upgraded to support ever-evolving regulatory requirements. By providing safely stored flight and sensor data, insurance companies...government regulators...accident investigators truly will understand “what happened.”

Market

Immortal Data has entered this marketplace at a unique moment in history, marked by the expansion of commercial space and the associated regulatory environment.

“The global new space market generated revenue of 6 Billion US dollars in 2019 and is projected to reach 9 Billion US dollars by 2026” - NewSpace Market Study, Global Market Estimates

With the number of companies pursuing tourism, satellite deployments, space manufacturing and construction rapidly increasing, the need for affordable data acquisitions and Black Box Solutions is on the rise. Legacy suppliers are not prepared to meet this need.

The expanding regulatory environment is trending towards requiring companies to collect and retain data from space operations. Immortal Data is positioned to shape future regulations and fulfill the technological need.

Immortal Data Market

Immortal Data holds the patent for Distributed Black Box™ technology and that patent has been established through multiple claims. Our competition can offer only traditional black boxes that collect limited data, and are expensive, heavy, and hard to recover.

We have established ourselves in those which are technically easiest to support. As our infrastructure matures, we plan to expand into the more challenging markets. We are pursuing interconnected markets such as aviation, maritime, and land transportation.

According to Global Aerospace, a UK/USA aerospace and aviation insurance company: Space underwriters are working with private space companies and NASA/FAA to create the insurance product that addresses the risks they face when it comes to human flight.

    Our launch has been delayed until 'not before...

    Our launch has been delayed until ‘not before April’ due to the primary payload not being flight ready. Our team was go, but we and the other FAA/AST payloads were secondaries so we do not get to wag the rocket dog. You can check out @dale_amon on twitter or look for postings I made on Linked in and Facebook for some photos of our team with the Up Aero rocket and at their launch area at Spaceport America.

    Unfortunate, but we have another job with ground based very destructive testing of spacecraft associated materials. First test is scheduled for early January. This 1st of 7 tests was originally due in September. I cannot complain as we are being paid for our efforts each month and will be invoicing on this first part of the project support work for the next 6 months (or more) that it is funded. We will focus our energies on that until a new launch date is finalized by NASA for the New Mexico Tech sensor test flight for which we built the payload and are supporting the launch.

    Since the last update, we have begun work on a...

    Since the last update, we have begun work on a time and materials contract as a subcontractor to Bangham Engineering and are now billing regularly for equipment and consultancy on a project that will continue the next 6 months. If the funding agency gets its requested budget, there will be an additional 6 months or more of more spectacular tests but we cannot promise the additional series will be funded. All tests will be real world and very ‘kinetic’. The object is to collect interesting data and push the survivability envelope of our gear to the extreme. At this time it looks like the first test of the funded series will occur in mid November, but the actual timing depends on government agencies time lines for access to the test range.

    On another front, our UpArrow SL-15 launch date is still holdng on the announced NASA flight schedule of November 30th from Spaceport America.

    Our Spaceports / ground systems side is bringing in significant ongoing chargeable work on the space side of the KLRU Airport Master Plan.

    We have submitted, with prime Dubois and King as the space side of the team for the Spaceport America 10 year master plan. No guarantees, but we have a solid team and a solid proposal. The selection will be made by November 9th unless the Spaceport Authority delays for further deliberation. Our share on the proposal would be ~49% so both work and income would be substantial for a company our size. IDI awaits Nov 9 with baited breath but victory is forward looking and unknowable so you will have to wait with us to see the outcome.

    We have moved into a larger space at the Las Cruces Airport finally. This was delayed for quite some time until we could get internet into the new space. Starlink coverage finally got to our grid and solved that problem. We are on the flight line and have dibs on about half the left wing for when we need it. Currently we are occupying an office/boardroom space (lit up) and a large lab/workshop area in the interior.

    At the moment we are building the prototype for 5 units that aims to be used in destructive testing of space hardware. Our team will be at the test site to take the data and test our own products at the same time. We hope for a second contract for even more severe tests by the same people to be finalized next year.

    Another part of our team is spooling up for a rapid turn around RFP on a spaceport master plan that is due in less than a month and will be decided and finalized by mid October. We cannot guarantee we will win it, but we are teamed up with Dubois and King as their space regulatory experts and the synergy between our companies is excellent. They are a top company in the field of airport planning; our team has some top space regulatory experts due to the general nature of our business.

    Busy week. We’ve come to an agreement for a Time and Materials job with a Huntsville company we are already working with. We will bill about $100k+ for supporting 6 tests over the next 6-9 months and will be ordering parts shortly.

    We are also starting a first work package for a customer in the NASA CubeSat challenge. This is only a few k on this package but there will be more work and if it flies it will be going to 3M miles, which will be a bonus for us over and above our work for them.

    After long delays by NASA due to paperwork issues with their payload, our rideshare has finally been given a hard launch date. We will be flying on Up Aerospace suborbital launcher on November 30th, nearly 15 months behind the original schedule. Our payload has been sitting in storage at the launch provider’s facility since August of last year. We designed and built the payload and its structures to collect data from a New Mexico Tech real time structural health monitoring sensor.
