Mathematica‘s Role in Flight Operational Safety Analysis
Major growth in air traffic is forcing regulators and traffic management teams within the industry to create and study more efficient flight operations. Mike Ulrey, a member of Boeing’s Advanced Air Traffic Management team, is tackling this problem with Mathematica.
In this video, Ulrey describes how Mathematica‘s graphical and visualization capabilities play a crucial role in developing models to analyze and test the safety of new flight operations. “It puts the whole conversation of whether it’s safe on a firm quantitative-model basis that enables people to make decisions about whether to go forward,” says Ulrey. “They have much better insight and they have confidence in the results.”
