From state-of-the-art facilities to a legacy of leadership in analysis and design of complex systems and decision making, the Aerospace Systems Design Laboratory (ASDL) has the resources and experience to tackle real world problems for the benefit of its sponsors and its students. Our mission is to formulate, develop, and implement comprehensive approaches to the design of affordable and high-quality complex systems.

The basic aim of current and future research at ASDL is to be educational leader in advanced systems architecting, engineering, design, integration and operations, decision making, digital engineering, data and visual analytics.

ASDL aims to accomplish this by:

  • Training the next generation of highly qualified engineers for academia, industry, and government
  • Developing leading design methods suitable for the design of all types of complex systems
  • Providing a point of global dissemination for cutting-edge research to academia, industry, and government
  • Advocating for research fields critical to the continued maturation of industry
