    Research Areas

    In today’s world software and hardware systems are becoming more important to our daily lives and hence there is an increasing demand to develop more reliable and efficient software and hardware. Software and hardware developed with fault tolerance capabilities improve the reliability and availability of the system.

    We have extensive research experience in fault tolerance in hardware and software systems publications;

    • Evaluation of fault tolerant capabilities
    • Detailed reliability modeling and analysis
    • Applying fault tolerant techniques such as redundancy management, wrapper, multi-layered design diversity.
    • Application of Fault Tolerance in Peer-to-Peer Systems and Mobile Agents
    • Security and Trust Models

    We have collaborations with various Canadian Universities.

    We need mathematical models to understand the physical properties of a system and to be able to predict its behavior.

    We are currently investigating the growth of an oxide layer, by mathematical models of a set of second order nonlinear parabolic partial differential equations (PDE). The solutions to these equations help us understand the behavior of the oxide layer and the initiation of cracks. These cracks critically affects the lifetime of TBC (Thermal barrier coatings) and the reliability of the engines.

    We have extensive research experience in mathematical modelling:

    • Numerical Analysis and Simulation
    • Solution of Partial Differential Equations

    We have collaborations with various Canadian  Universities.

    In today’s world there is an increased concerns for security. With the use of Image Processing one can analyze the images to identify threats.

    We have extensive research experience in Image Processing:

    • Optical, Infra-Red, radio wavelengths
    • Spectral Imaging
    • Algorithms for Image Analysis
    • Bayesian techniques, matched filter
    • Edge Detection
    • Fourier Optics

    The prognosis and health management (PHM) of aerospace components is a very complex system. A complete PHM system involves sensors, signal processing, condition monitoring, health assessment, physical reasoning, and decision-making. PHM Systems are needed to predict the health of aeroengines and maintain a safe and reliable operating life of aircrafts. We are currently developing an Analytical Software System for Prognosis Health Management (PHM) of Aerospace Systems. Our research and development will focus on the prognostics and the decision-making elements of the PHM system where the data collected from the sensors will be used to predict the behavior of the components as well as the whole system.

    Our objectives are:

    • to develop physics-based models to better understand the failure mechanisms;
    • to develop statistical models to understand the signatures of failures long before the failures actually occur;
    • to design and build a prognostic system that incorporates the models of the engine system we develop;
    • to integrate all the aspects of decision-making process into the prognostic software system.

    We have collaborations with the University of Waterloo and National Research Council.
