Analysis of JPL Mission Cost Estimate Drivers
MetadataShow full item record
An analysis of JPL cost estimate drivers. To give a better idea of true costs, all values were converted to fiscal year 2005 ; the NASA New Start Inflation Index (2005) was used. The context was generated primarily from interview notes. Project-specific drivers were identified through documents and interviews. Statistically significant common drivers occurred in late 1999-early 2000. A better understanding of cost estimate drivers could result in higher fidelity cost estimates.

Adaptive Estimation for Control of Uncertain Nonlinear Systems with Applications to Target Tracking Madyastha, Venkatesh (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2005-11-28)Design of nonlinear observers has received considerable attention since the early development of methods for linear state estimation. The most popular approach is the extended Kalman filter (EKF), that goes through significant ...

Yoon, Yeo-Sun (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2004-07-12)Sensor arrays are used in many applications where their ability to localize signal sources is essential. For many applications, it is necessary to estimate the direction-of-arrival (DOA) of target sources. Although there ...
