Description

For technologically mature industries or those with high barriers to change, innovation is a challenge. One low risk, low cost innovation path is to radically improve performance while minimizing change to existing infrastructure. In his presentation at the 2013 SIAM Annual Meeting and Conference on Control and Its Applications, Nazareth Bedrossian of Halliburton used a historical perspective on spacecraft optimal control to show how scientific computation can act as the enabler for next generation innovation. Real world examples were presented where radical leaps in performance without altering spacecraft hardware or software has been achieved.
