Development of Probability Models for UAS Performance

The objective of the project is to conduct a data-driven pilot safety risk trend analysis by using data to characterize, predict, and classify unmanned aircraft system (UAS) safety events. Any data-driven analysis is only as good as the data upon which it is based. A great deal of this effort will be spent on the development of the historical data inventory (assessment and determination of the various data sources) and data acquisition plans with the Air Force Safety Center (AFSC) and implementation of data qualification processes. The resulting data will ultimately be used for safety trend analyses and regulatory gap analysis.
