A summer Intern is needed to help with analysis of collision avoidance and surveillance algorithm performance of an aircraft collision avoidance system. Tasks include: performing modifications to collision avoidance and surveillance logic, performing modeling and simulation in a framework written in C/C++, analyzing simulation output and documenting results, and developing algorithm improvements based on conclusions. This work supports the FAA in the design and development of next generation collision avoidance systems for manned and unmanned aircraft. The selected intern will be asked to carry out these tasks under the mentor-ship and supervision of a member of the Lincoln Laboratory staff. At the end of this time period, the student will be expected to present the results of his/her work.
