Spot Off: The Gao Takes On The Tsa’S Behavior Detection Program, Editor 2010 Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University

Spot Off: The Gao Takes On The Tsa’S Behavior Detection Program, Editor

International Bulletin of Political Psychology

The United States Government Accountability Office (GAO) has recently Issued Efforts to Validate TSA’s Passenger Screening Behavior Detection Program Underway, but Opportunities Exist to Strengthen Validation and Address Operational Problems (May 2010, GAO-10-763). This IBPP article will describe and comment on the main GAO findings and additional data on which the findings are based. The article will end with some basic challenges to behavior detection as a useful security measure.

Effect Of Time Pressure And Task Uncertainty On Human Operator Performance And Workload For Autonomous Aerial Vehicle Missions, Trevor Peterson 2010 Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University - Daytona Beach

Effect Of Time Pressure And Task Uncertainty On Human Operator Performance And Workload For Autonomous Aerial Vehicle Missions, Trevor Peterson

Theses - Daytona Beach

Unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) are being utilized at an increasing rate for a number of military applications. The potential for their use in the national airspace is also of interest to the Federal Aviation Administration, but there are some concerns about the safety of flying unmanned aircraft. The role of a UAS operator differs from that of a pilot in a manned aircraft, and this new role creates a need for a shift in interface and task design in order to take advantage of the full potential of these systems. This study examined the effect of time pressure and task ...


An Exploration Of The Effects Of Maintenance Manning On Combat Mission Readiness Utilizing Agent Based Modeling, Adam S. MacKenzie 2010 Air Force Institute of Technology

An Exploration Of The Effects Of Maintenance Manning On Combat Mission Readiness Utilizing Agent Based Modeling, Adam S. Mackenzie

Theses and Dissertations

Agent based models have been shown to be powerful tools in describing processes and systems centered on individual behaviors and local interactions (i.e. “bottom-up”) between specific entities. Current application areas tend to be focused within the business and social science arenas, although their usefulness has been demonstrated in the modeling of various chemistry and physics-based systems. Conversely, many highly process-oriented systems, such as manufacturing environments, tend to be modeled via “top-down” methods, including discrete or continuous event simulations among others. As a result, potentially critical attributes of the entities or resources modeled with these methods (spatial properties, “learning curve ...


A Simulation Based Methodology To Examine The B-1b'S An/Alq-161 Maintenance Process, Ricardo R. Garza 2010 Air Force Institute of Technology

A Simulation Based Methodology To Examine The B-1b'S An/Alq-161 Maintenance Process, Ricardo R. Garza

Theses and Dissertations

The B-1 Bomber is the Air Force’s only supersonic, conventional-only strike platform. This thesis looks at the maintenance procedures associated with the defensive electronic counter measure (ECM) system on the B-1B, designated the AN/ALQ-161. Computer simulation of the current line-replaceable-unit maintenance network for Ellsworth AFB and Dyess AFB is modeled. In addition, two hypothetical repair networks are proposed and analyzed. This research considers the applicability of this type of computer simulation, using ARENA software to study the AN/ALQ-161 repair system. The contribution of this research is a discrete simulation methodology specific to the AN/ALQ-161 LRU repair ...


Simulation Analysis Of High Velocity Maintenance For The B-1b, Anson R. Park 2010 Air Force Institute of Technology

Simulation Analysis Of High Velocity Maintenance For The B-1b, Anson R. Park

Theses and Dissertations

This thesis explores the impact that High Velocity Maintenance (HVM) will have on aircraft availability rates for the B-1B by examining the proposed changes to the field maintenance and supply processes for the two B-1B squadrons of the 28th Bombardment Wing located at Ellsworth AFB, SD. There is a significant restructuring of depot level maintenance planned with the implementation of HVM, and the impact that this will have on base-level operations is important to determine, for it will provide insight as to whether or not HVM will be a feasible program with a high probability of successfully improving B-1B aircraft ...

A Historical Look At The Av-8 Harrier Program, Bill O'Hara

ERAU Prescott Aviation History Program

Hear the inside story of one of the most controversial airplanes ever introduced to Naval Aviation, as told by a Marine pilot with more than 3,000 hours in the Harrier. Bill (Prof) O’Hara, was also the real pilot in the movie “True Lies” with Arnold Schwarzenegger!


The New Aviation Meteorology Specialization In The Graduate Aeronautics Program At Embry-Riddle, John M. Lanicci, Erin A. Roberts 2010 Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University

The New Aviation Meteorology Specialization In The Graduate Aeronautics Program At Embry-Riddle, John M. Lanicci, Erin A. Roberts

School of Graduate Studies - Daytona Beach

The next 12 months will be an exciting time of growth in graduate aviation studies at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University's Daytona Beach, FL campus. Beginning in Fall Semester 2009, a new Area of Concentration (AOC) in Aviation Meteorology will be added to the Master of Science in Aeronautics (MSA) program, and the new Doctoral program in Aviation will be starting in January 2010. The Aviation Meteorology AOC adds a crucial specialty to the existing MSA options in Air Traffic Management, Aviation/Aerospace Education Technology, Aviation/Aerospace Management, Aviation/Aerospace Operations, and Aviation/Aerospace Safety Systems.

The Aviation Meteorology AOC is ...

Hardware Certification For Real-Time Safety-Critical Systems: State Of The Art, Andrew J. Kornecki, Janusz Zalewski 2010 Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University

Hardware Certification For Real-Time Safety-Critical Systems: State Of The Art, Andrew J. Kornecki, Janusz Zalewski

Electrical, Computer, Software and Systems Engineering - Daytona Beach

This paper discusses issues related to the RTCA document DO-254 Design Assurance Guidance for Airborne Electronic Hardware and its consequences for hardware certification. In particular, problems related to circuits’ compliance with DO-254 in avionics and other industries are considered. Extensive literature review of the subject is given, including current views on and experiences of chip manufacturers and EDA industry with qualification of hardware design tools, including formal approaches to hardware verification. Some results of the authors’ own study on tool qualification are presented.
