1 recipient will receive $2,980,000. This is a first-time earmark.
Year Enacted: 2005
Description: This was a new cooperative agreement NNL05AA18A. Award amount $2.860M The research is entitled: "More Effective Methods for Dynamics and Control of Complex Uncertain Dynamic Systems," aims to further basic research in various aspects of uncertainty quantification for robust design. Accurate quantification of uncertainty and methods for incorporating uncertainty analysis into the design process to mitigate risks will be critical for the Agency's upcoming development activities in Exploration (CEV and beyond). Mathematical modeling, numerical modeling, and experimental analyses are proposed that will support the development and evaluation of methods for quantifying uncertainty in multi-body dynamics systems; a proposed polynomial chaos representation of uncertainty appears particularly innovative and worthy of investigation. The results of the proposed study would extend fundamental understanding of the effect of uncertainty on performance-critical systems, and would lead to improved methods for designing, modeling, testing, and operating such systems in various environments.
