Abstract

In nature, the continued survival of a species depends on the adaptability to unexpected environmental factors. While major mutations may lead to the selection of preferred traits in the long term, in the short term there are a variety of principles found in nature which are seen across biomes which enable individual organisms and organism groups to be adaptive. For complex, human engineered systems the ability to adapt to broad environmental and mission changes is a growing research topic. This paper presents the findings of a review of biological science to identify general strategies of fault adaption. These strategies are categorized and then represented using a formal engineering model-based representation. This work demonstrates the ability to identify natural fault adaptive principles, the ability to use these principles in a guided design process, and presents a validation framework for comparing performance of biologically inspired fault adaptive technologies.
