Abstract:

FROM THE DIRECTOR I am pleased to provide the SERC Annual Report for 2012. This has been an exciting and fruitful year. Having refined and solidified our vision in 2011, we have enthusiastically embraced it throughout our activities, and are making strides toward becoming the Systems Research and Impact Network. We have expanded our collaborator community by adding North Carolina Agricultural and Technical University and Georgetown University as new members. We have enabled founding members MIT and University of California San Diego to fully participate through changes in the SERCs contract. Those changes also provide a means for the SERC to participate in classified work as necessary. We have worked diligently to ensure future impact by broadening our sponsor base. A new agreement with the Federal Aviation Administration is applying SERC researchers to the complex NextGen air traffic control system program. We are increasing the impact of SERC research throughout the systems engineering community through closer relationships with our sponsors and additional transition channels. We have welcomed new members to the SERC Advisory Board as we said farewell to some initial members who so ably supported us and have moved on to other challenges. Above all, we are enthusiastically tackling the systems problems brought to us by our sponsors. This report provides a window into the wide variety of SERC research- projects that are already transitioning, work that is underway, and concepts just initiated or in the pipeline.
