The Multi-model Ensemble Risk Assessment project will develop an ensemble modeling approach for risk assessment where REID acceptance is determined based on the region of overlap between multiple predictive models allowing a straight forward method to input information derived from multiple sources including international risk prediction models.


Specific Aims:

Aim 1:  Determine mathematical formulism to implement multiple probabilistic and deterministic risk models into a single risk framework.

Aim 2: Identify common risk quantification parameters across cancer, cardiovascular disease, and late neurodegeneration consistent with Human System Risk Board quality of life consequences.

Aim 3: Develop visualization of results to support risk communication and decision making.

Aim 4: Develop multi-scale model for the evaluation of countermeasure efficacy based on human epidemiology and radiobiology data from NSRL.

Aim 5: Develop methodology to down select models for inclusion and retirement including appropriate weighting factors.


Models will be configuration managed and fully documented in accordance with appropriate NASA software develop standards
