Advanced Aviation Analytics Institute for Research: A Center of Research Excellence (A³IR-CORE)

Director: Dr. John H. Mott, Associate Professor, School of Aviation & Transportation Technology

 

The Advanced Aviation Analytics Institute for Research (A³IR- CORE), a University-level Center of Research Excellence that resides in the School of Aviation and Transportation Technology, is focused on the dual mission of solving industry problems and providing educational experiences for students by actively involving both graduate and undergraduate student researchers working closely with faculty mentors in a highly-collaborative multidisciplinary environment.  The Center is sponsored by multiple industry and government partners, and much of the research performed occurs in conjunction with those partners.

The research agenda of the Center is focused primarily on the collection, aggregation, and analysis of distributed transportation data, and the development of decision support tools based on that analysis.  The Center generates substantial scholarship that disseminates its research through internationally-recognized conferences and peer-reviewed scholarly journals.

Flagship functions of the A³IR-CORE center

  • To cultivate undergraduate research and enhance the undergraduate and graduate educational experience by facilitating teams composed of faculty mentors working alongside graduate and undergraduate students
  • To offer graduate students opportunities to lead research teams
  • To explore new and emerging technologies and apply them to existing and innovative research ideas
  • To contribute to Purdue e-Pubs, a product of Purdue University Libraries' open access publishing initiative 
  • To promote the bridging of Aviation and Transportation Technology and engineering
