  • Repeating EventAircraft Accident Investigation AAI 24-4

    Tue, Apr 30, 2024 @ 08:00 AM - 04:00 PM

    Aviation Safety and Security Program

    University Calendar


    The course is designed for individuals who have limited investigation experience. All aspects of the investigation process are addressed, starting with preparation for the investigation through writing the final report. It covers National Transportation Safety Board and International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) procedures. Investigative techniques are examined with an emphasis on fixed-wing investigation. Data collection, wreckage reconstruction, and cause analysis are discussed in the classroom and applied in the lab.
    The USC Aircraft Accident Investigation lab serves as the location for practical exercises. Thirteen aircraft wreckages form the basis of these investigative exercises. The crash laboratory gives the student an opportunity to learn the observation and documentation skills required of accident investigators. The wreckage is examined and reviewed with investigators who have extensive actual real-world investigation experience. Examination techniques and methods are demonstrated along with participative group discussions of actual wreckage examination, reviews of witness interview information, and investigation group personal dynamics discussions.

    Tue, Apr 30, 2024 @ 08:00 AM - 04:00 PM

    Aviation Safety and Security Program

    University Calendar


    This course provides supervisors with aviation safety principles and practices needed to manage the problems associated with aircraft maintenance operations. In addition, it prepares attendees to assume safety responsibilities in their areas of operation. It does not teach aircraft maintenance and assumes the attendee has a maintenance background.

    Title: Static Program Analyses for WebAssembly
     
    Committee Members: Weihang Wang (Chair), Chao Wang, and Pierluigi Nuzzo
     
    Date/Time: Tuesday, April 30th, 9:30am - 11:30am
     
    Abstract: WebAssembly is a recent standard for the web that aims to enable high-performance web applications that can run at near-native speeds. The standard has gained attention in both academia and industry for its ability to speed up existing user-facing web applications. Due to its well-defined and sound design, many static program analysis techniques have been developed to accomplish various purposes of WebAssembly analysis. However, we identify gaps in the static program analysis tools of the current WebAssembly ecosystem. We find that current program optimizations applied on WebAssembly modules may lead to diminished performance. We also identify a lack of tools that help developers understand WebAssembly modules through robust binary decompilation. Finally, we find a gap in the ability to analyze cross-language WebAssembly applications across the two languages they are typically implemented in, i.e., WebAssembly and JavaScript.
     
    In this thesis, we present a novel WebAssembly Analysis Framework, or WAF . WAF is a static program analysis framework for WebAssembly modules that consists of multiple intermediate representations. Inspired by frameworks made for Java, the core of our framework lies in our three intermediate representations that each model the WebAssembly module at a different semantic level. This structure enables WAF to serve in multiple use cases, including program optimizations, binary decompilation, cross-language program analysis, and malware detection. We aim to show that our framework can improve static program analysis in the areas that the WebAssembly ecosystem is lacking.
