The mission of the lab (currently under development) will be to support and advance experiential learning and unique research activities of students and faculty. The lab will enhance flight data analysis and promote collaboration with industry and aviation experts. The lab will foster research opportunities for faculty and students, with particular emphasis on research by the AOS, Master of Science in Aeronautics, and Aviation Ph.D. programs. Specific intended capabilities for the lab include the ability to provide 3-D modeling of accident, incident, and routine flight data; the analysis of both qualitative and quantitative data, to include CVR audio data and narratives from ASAP reports.

Potential research topics include real-time FOQA analyses, flight data forensics following simulated accidents and incidents using the AAS flight simulator, fusion of quantitative and qualitative data sources to improve hazard identification, data visualization for enhanced user comprehension, use of machine learning technology to provide short-term predictive warnings to flight crews through artificial intelligence methods, and real-world analysis of hazards present in operations by the campus Flight Department.

Equipment: 30 computer workstations, wall jacks and ports, flight data monitoring software packages
