Development of a Distributed Approach to System Level Uncertainty Quantification

As part of its tool development effort, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Office of Energy and the Environment leads research analyses of policy outcomes to uncertainties in input parameters and assumptions of different tools. Project 48 creates a new aircraft conceptual design capability in the FAA tools suite, through Transport Aircraft System OPTimization (TASOpt), and developing an approach to perform a system-level quantification of uncertainty. This system-level assessment will quantify how input uncertainties propagate through a system comprising multiple modeling components.
