ASTREA - S.Nefti (PI £30,000) (2008)
This project has been carried out as a part of ASTRAEA T7 (Autonomous Systems Technology Related Airborne Evaluation and Assessment). This is a key UK programme (£32 million) which aims to strengthen further the UK's pedigree in UAV technology. My new clustering method (IEEE trans on FS) has been used to categorize test cases for the handling of fuel system failure events within an open architecture.
