Research Transition/Application Impact “CREATE has provided several very timely, relevant deliverables to the Counter-MANPADS Systems Program Office ... . As the program has progressed, there has been a growing need to show the benefits relative to the costs of outfitting the commercial aircraft fleet with such technologies … . The CREATE products, which include an economic analysis of the indirect costs associated with a successful MANPADS attack, have helped fill this void.” (Counter-MANPADS Program Office, email message from Kurt Wohlstaetter to Detlof von Winterfeldt) Director of the MANPADS Systems Program Office “We have tested IRIS and…have continued to expand the number of flights scheduled using IRIS. Our exact use of IRIS is sensitive information and we can only state that we are satisfied with IRIS and confident in using this scheduling approach.” James B. Curren, Special Assistant, Office of Flight Operations Federal Air Marshals Service (FAMS)
