ASDL@GTL Research

 As a member of the UMI 2958, ASDL@GTL is focused on research in the areas of complex systems design and integration, and system of systems exploration and assessment. This is a multidisciplinary initiative designed to complement ongoing research at GTL and address other systems engineering studies in Europe. Our areas of interest and development include:

  • Requirement Setting and Design Space Exploration
  • Technology Modeling and Evaluation
  • Probabilistic Analysis and Uncertainty Reduction
  • System Decomposition
  • Enumeration and Analysis of Alternatives
  • Technology Evaluation

Strategic Portfolio Prioritization

Through the UMI 2958 partnership ASDL at GTL has a strategic European location in Metz, France. It also has access to advanced computing resources for complex systems analysis and design space exploration including:

  • Computing cluster with 300 processing cores
  • 8 TB of storage
  • 3 GPUs
  • Secure connections via LAN cables and Ethernet network switches for reliability 
  • Dedicated IT support staff

Currently ASDL@GTL is partnering with the EU Commission’s Clean Sky Joint Undertaking (CSJU) under the Horizon 2020 program framework. The Clean Sky program is the largest civil aviation research initiative in Europe to develop innovative technology to reduce CO2 gas emissions and noise levels produced by aircraft. The collaboration - the Overall Air Transport System Vehicle Scenarios (OASyS) project - will forecast future scenarios to inform Clean Sky’s Technology Evaluator- thus enhancing its modelling capability to estimate the impacts of potential scenarios that include advanced configurations like urban air mobility vehicles and supersonic transport aircraft within the global fleet.
