Henson Seminar Featuring NASA's J. Tanner Slagel October 4
By SU Public Relations
SALISBURY, MD---Uncrewed aircraft systems have the potential to aid in disaster relief, from delivering essential supplies and medicine during a hurricane to controlling and tracking a wildfire. But are they safe?
Dr. J. Tanner Slagel, research computer scientist at NASA’s Langley Research Center, explores these increasingly complex and autonomous operations and the importance of safety assurance during the presentation “Proving Safety in Uncrewed Aircraft Systems” 4 p.m. Wednesday, October 4, in Room 103 of Salisbury University’s Henson Science Hall.
Slagel will present formal methods, the process in which a system is proven to work using elements of mathematical analysis and foundational logic, and how formal methods applies to applications of interest to NASA.
