Devin Jack

R&D Engineer

Devin has worked with Adaptive Aerospace Group, Inc for over 11 years supporting NASA research towards the integration of uncrewed aircraft systems (UAS) into the U.S. National Airspace System. His studies include a B.S in Mechanical Engineering with a focus on Aerospace Engineering and a minor in mathematics, graduate-level courses on controls and design of experiments, as well as training towards a private pilot license.

In support of NASA research, Devin has led the development and execution of several fast-time and human-in-the-loop simulation studies focused on the development of standards for Detect and Avoid (DAA) systems. His responsibilities have included concept development, design of the experiments, software development, data analysis, and dissemination of results. He has leveraged formal Design of Experiment approaches and response surface methodology techniques to both fast-time and human-in-the loop
simulation studies.

Devin’s research has helped shape the DAA standards including sensor requirements and definitions of DAA Well Clear. His research and technical leadership have been acknowledged by multiple Significant Contributor awards from RTCA and an Early Career Achievement Medal from NASA.
