“Risk Mitigation – From Space Applications to the Internet-of-Things (IoT)”

Dr. John L. Schmalzel,
Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering, Rowan University

Systems include many risks, which occupy the efforts of the people who must identify and manage those risks in order to mitigate them to acceptable levels to support missions and safeguard lives. This talk summarizes a number of inter-related projects that all contribute in some measure to risk management. Beginning with NASA’s Max Launch Abort System project, which was designed to mitigate launch pad failure risks, the role of smart/intelligent sensors is considered, and then concludes with the importance of standardization to reduction of risks in the era of IoT.
