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.
- 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.
- The first space launch of our technology is planned for early 2022 onboard an Up Aero SL-15 from Spaceport America arranged by NASA.
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.
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.
Our Product Line
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
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 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™
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.
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.
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.”
Immortal Data has entered this marketplace at a unique moment in history, marked by the expansion of commercial space and the associated regulatory environment.
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 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.
The Way Forward
The Immortal Data roadmap to success is achievable by building upon short, near and long term objectives. Our team aims to achieve these objectives over the coming months and years.
Short Term Objectives
- July, 2021: Conduct a PR campaign to build brand awareness. Currently underway.
- August 2021: Complete bench test of prototype system.
- October 2021: Post an invitation to invest in IDI on Netcapital.
Near Term Objectives
- Early 2022: Launch of prototype system into 100 km vertical trip to test technology in actual working conditions, in partnership with New Mexico Institute of Technology.
