An Analysis of the Risk from UAS Missions in the National Airspace
As Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) are integrated into the national airspace, we must be careful to ensure that the hazard rate to human bystanders is sufficiently small. The first source of risk to bystanders involves midair collisions between UAS and other aircraft. The second source of risk concerns risks due to ground impact, ...
Advances and Applications of Multiple Scale Methods in Complex Dynamical Systems
High dimensionality, numerical stiffness, and complex subsystem interactions pose fundamental challenges for the design, analysis, and certification of modern aerospace systems. This dissertation addresses these issues by leveraging multiple timescale behaviour to formulate mathematically rigorous reduced-order models that ...
