Intelligent control systems are nature-inspired, computationally intensive problem-solving tools and methodologies that have become important for future innovations in aeronautics and space exploration. Intelligent control systems will enable safe, mission-effective approaches to aircraft and spacecraft design and control, spacecraft autonomy, and robotic and human space exploration. In the keynote address, KrishnaKumar will present some areas of applications of intelligent control that NASA is pursuing and highlight the benefits in such applications.

 

 

Dr. KrishnaKumar is a scientist and past group lead of the Adaptive Control and Evolvable Systems (ACES) group of the Exploration Technology Directorate at the NASA Ames Research Center in California. He currently serves as the principal investigator for the Integrated Resilient Aircraft Control project under the NASA Aviation Safety Program.

 

The CSIA 2010 Executive Conference will be April 29 - May 1 at the Westin Seattle .
