Air travel has become so commonplace to the point where many of us never even think about the wonder of flying on an aircraft or being able to send things around the world over night. And yet every day, countless agencies and individuals around the world move in a coordinated ballet even in the face of a global pandemic.
Andy Chapman’s recent lecture, “Advanced Manufacturing: Enabling Warfighter Innovation at the Tactical Edge,” tells the story of how his team worked with the Marine Corps to develop advanced manufacturing capabilities as part of a project to adopt Small Unmanned Aerial Systems (sUAS) into Marine operations. The MITRE team’s problem-solving approach with sUAS shows that by closely examining the context of the initial goal to identify the root of the problem, it is possible to realize a more complete scope of logistical, economic, and ethical results.
Clinical diagnostic support. Loan approval. Predictive policing and parole. These are all examples of consequential systems, meaning that they are systems with immediate, long-term, impactful consequences on people within them.
This award-winning project enables the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) to forecast the future aviation fleet in the United States. Previously, having to contract externally for this forecast, the FAA had minimal insight into how the forecast was produced…
An electronic flight bag (EFB) may typically be used to replace pilots’ paper charts, but with some new developments, it could start to be more of a cognitive assistant. MITRE researchers….
Even in the most high-tech domains, knowledge needs to flow across many platforms—explicitly during face-to-face discussions at conferences and in working groups, implicitly as teams perform together, and deliberately as new technology rolls out and directives roll with them. MITRE serves as an interface for all types of ongoing collaboration.—Editor
Air traffic managers have dozens of tools and capabilities they must monitor to keep up with what’s going on in the nation’s airspace at any given time. These tools and capabilities monitor airport and airspace demand, assess the impact of reroutes, and track emerging weather patterns…
The 2017 RTCA Symposium in Crystal City, Virginia, featured MITRE staff speaking on topics ranging from commercial space operations and the future of avionics to Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast…
As Amanda Andrei mentioned in her previous post, Defining, Applying, and Coordinating Data Science at MITRE, we are generating 2.5 million terabytes of data a day, and the need for data science teams and individual contributors is crucial for moving what we find up the spectrum to knowledge that we might usefully….
For a long time I have thought I was a statistician, interested in inferences from the particular to the general, wrote mathematician….
