NASA Langleys Research Directorate (RD) conducts research and develops advanced technology to support the research and technology objectives of NASAs Aeronautics Research Mission, Human Exploration and Operations Mission, Space Technology Program, and Science Mission. Flight Critical Systems Research addresses aviation systems technology gaps that are exposed by the operational challenges of the Next Generation Air Transportation System (NextGen), trans-atmospheric flight, and extra-terrestrial planetary flight. Such operations are characterized by increasing complexity and innerconnectivity; distributed control; system of systems, continuous vehicle health management; remote-piloting and autonomy (e.g., unmanned aircraft systems operations); blurring of system boundaries; escalating and ubiquitous automation and computing; and increasing verification, validation, and certification challenges. The Contractor shall conduct basic and applied research, technology development, and systems analyses in airborne and ground-based systems critical to flight safety, management, and control in the areas of crew systems and aviation operations, situation awareness air traffic control (ATC), requirements for human subject Experimentation, Safety-Critical Aviation Systems, Design Integrity, System safety assurance, operational integrity, and flight critical systems analysis and assessment.
