Dr. John Wood on Advancing the Operational Readiness of the V-22 Osprey Fleet via Cloud-Based Analytics (A Work In Progress)

Abstract: The purpose of this presentation is to provide a brief introduction of cloud computing in the context of a real-life project. This project recently employed the advantages of cloud computing to house and analyze multiple data sources related to the V-22 Osprey tiltrotor aircraft. By correlating separate data streams, the team has increased context, awareness, and understanding of all factors contributing to aircraft readiness. While still in its initial phases, the preliminary results reveal the power and potential brought forth by cloud computing. [Flyer]
