Background
Background Transportation

  • Well over 200 commercial aircraft have encountered volcanic ash in the past 20 years

  • Eight encounters lost engine power

  • Ash is capable of serious damage

  • Damage depends on ash concentration, exposure, and pilot mitigation

  • Onboard radar cannot detect ash

Monitored
Monitored? Transportation

Monitoring capabilities are highly variable around the globe

Sequestration has cut monitoring in the US

We need better, automated monitoring, advance planning, and post event analysis for air traffic in volcanic regions.


Mitigation complacency
Mitigation Complacency Transportation

Mitigation of bad outcomes can lead to complacency – as if the hazard has been eliminated.

The threat remains.

Continued vigilance is necessary and supports mitigation capabilities.

A Better Volcanic Ash Transport & Dispersion Model

The SBIR is structured with Phase I focused on research & Phase II emphasizing development.

Phase III is the responsibility of the small business to commercialize the technology.

Intriguing problem

  • Social, Commercial, Engineering, Logistics

  • Aviation Safety & Liability

    • American vs European Views

  • Commercial vs Military

    • Cargo, Logistics & Mission Readiness

      Intriguing model refinement

  • Stereo Ray Tracing, Calibration, Validation

    • Life cycle for developing the model

    • Future versions & In-line models
