Mission Statement

Director: Dr. James T. Luxhøj

The CARDA focuses on research and development of advanced analytical methods and decision support tools for risk assessment. Significant research efforts have been in support of the aviation safety domain. This research has been supported by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA). Currently, the CARDA is assisting the NASA Aviation Safety and Security Program (AvSSP) with the risk assessments of a new product portfolio for aviation safety. One of the main research products, the Aviation System Risk Model (ASRM), is being used by the NASA Langley Research Center to provide projected relative risk reductions of the impact of new technologies. With a team approach of professors, graduate and undergraduate research assistants, government personnel and industry experts, the CARDA seeks to identify and apply new and innovative methods to challenging risk assessment problems.


The CARDA is seeking additional sponsors to further extend and expand its research beyond the aviation domain. For more information, please contact:
