CM-SAT addresses a relevant, high priority issue Aviation Safety. The causal relationships learned in this project are directly applicable to the mitigation of aircraft aging, analysis and prediction of crew performance, anomaly detection, and the Verification and Validation of flight control systems. CM-SAT addresses several technical challenge cited by the NASA Aviation Safety Program (AvSP), including the challenges of Assurance of Flight Critical Systems, Discovery of Safety Issues, Vehicle Health Assurance, Crew-System Interactions and Decisions, Loss of Control Prevention, Mitigation, and Recovery, Engine and Airframe Icing, and Atmospheric Sensing & Mitigation. CM-SAT is most relevant to the Systemwide Safety and Assurance Technologies (SSAT) project in that it directly addresses safety assurance by predicting risky conditions. However it also indirectly addresses issues in the Vehicle Safety Systems Technologies (VSST) project and Atmospheric Environment Safety Technologies (AEST) by providing general knowledge of the causal relationships on aircraft which lead to hazardous conditions.
