NASA Unmanned Aerial Systems

As NASA-funded research, this project entailed the development of a novel process for the evaluation of the expected performance resiliency of drones in the domestic airspace. We sought to ensure that small drones become increasingly incorporated into daily aviation activities and their system designed all for their safe operation under the widest possible range of conditions. The product technique, the resiliency trade-space analysis, can be used to help system designs and operator understand how to best deploy their limited resources to greatest effect with regard to the resilience of the system.
