High Confidence Sensing Challenge
How can we trust visual/radar systems for flight critical functions?
SOA: Brute force and analytic redundancy
Mission-style sensors don’t have acceptable real-time methods for FDIR…
Sensors will likely be multi-function!
Redundant HW may not be answer, redundant information?
Built-in-test may not provide good real-time coverage.
Reliable signal processing/sensor fusion software
Answer may reside in sensor designs that compensate for sensor degradation and plan for contingencies
