    State Analysis - A Model-based Engineering Method for Systems and Software Engineers




    Course Instructor:

    Dr. Michel Ingham is the Technical Group Supervisor of the System Architectures and Behaviors Group at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory. Mitch has played a central role in the development of State Analysis, and its application to the design and implementation of software architectures for flight and ground systems. He received his Sc.D. in Aeronautics and Astronautics from MIT.

    Dr. Robert Rasmussen is a Fellow at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, and Chief Architect of a mission to explore Jupiter and the water ocean under the ice crust of its moon Europa. He has been a systems engineer at JPL since arriving there in 1975 to support the development of Voyager, after receiving his Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering from Iowa State University.

    Dr. Daniel Dvorak is a principal engineer in the Systems and Software Division at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, California Institute of Technology. Dan's interests include systems engineering and software architecture, particularly in an effort to better manage the complexity of robotic spacecraft and its operations.
