Ganesh J. Pai

I am a contractor member of the scientific staff at NASA Ames Research Center, employed by SGT, Inc. as Research Engineer. I undertake both research and engineering to support the Agency's missions and projects, working within the Robust Software Engineering (RSE) technical area of the Intelligent Systems Division (Code TI).

My research interests lie in the areas of systems and software engineering with a focus on dependability and safety. My current research addresses three interrelated topics:

  • safety analysis and assurance of aviation systems and software
  • safety and security-relevant concerns pertaining to unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) to enable their routine access to the national airspace system, and
  • safety aspects of the wider air traffic management system, and the airspace system.

In 2014, Ewen Denney and I, as members of the RSE Safety Case Team, were jointly awarded an Agency Honor Award (Group Achievement Award), for our contribution to the safety assurance of a ground-based detect and avoid concept that enabled beyond visual line of sight UAS operations in Alaska in support of the NASA MIZOPEX Earth Science Mission.

My alma mater is the University of Virginia, from where I graduated with degrees in Computer Engineering (PhD), and Electrical Engineering (MS). I am a member of the AIAA,
the IEEE Computer Society, and a senior member of the IEEE.
