SYNOPSIS

The Dynamics, Control and Systems Diagnostics (DCSD) program supports fundamental research on the analysis, measurement, monitoring and control of dynamic systems. The program promotes innovation in the following areas:

  • Modeling: creation of new mathematical frameworks to apply tools of dynamics to physical systems
  • Analysis: discovery and exploration of structure in dynamic behavior
  • Diagnostics: dynamic methods that infer system properties from observations
  • Control: methods that produce desired dynamic behavior

Proposals submitted to the DCSD program should clearly identify, articulate and motivate innovative components in one or more of the foundational areas above.

Furthermore, proposals should be aligned with the disciplinary thrusts of the CMMI division. To ensure that a project is appropriate for the DCSD program, PIs are very strongly encouraged to contact DCSD Program Directors prior to the full submission.

Innovative research that primarily concerns electromagnetic or chemical phenomena should be directed to the ECCS or CBET divisions. The DCSD Program does not fund fundamental research relating to sensing modalities or sensor development. Proposals offering fundamental research on sensing modalities should be submitted to the Communications, Circuits and Sensing Systems (CCSS) program or the Electronics, Photonics, and Magnetic Devices (EPMD) program in the ECCS Division.
