Researchers at +Texas A&M University have developed an intelligent transportation system prototype designed to avoid collisions and prevent hacking of autonomous vehicles.

“If these technologies are to be adopted by society, they will need to be protected against malicious attacks on sensors.” -Professor P.R.Kumar

Congratulations to Professor Yoohwan Kim at UNLV! Kim has been selected for the 2017 Air Force Summer Faculty Fellowship Program (USAF-SFFP) to conduct research at the Air Force Research Laboratory.

USAF-SFFP offers hands-on exposure to +United States Air Force research challenges at participating Air Force research facilities for full-time science, mathematics, and engineering faculty at U.S. colleges and universities. To learn more about the USAF-SFFP program, visit http://afsffp.sysplus.com/. #AirForce #AFRL #ComputerScience

Research proposals are sought for the Space Science program, managed by Dr. Julie Moses. This program supports basic research on the solar-terrestrial environment extending from the Sun through Earth’s magnetosphere and radiation belts to the mesosphere and lower thermosphere region. This geospace system is subject to solar radiation, particles, and eruptive events, variable interplanetary magnetic fields, and cosmic rays. Perturbations to the system can disrupt the detection and tracking of aircraft, missiles, satellites, and other targets; distort communications and navigation signals; interfere with global command, control, and surveillance operations; and negatively impact the performance and longevity of +United States Air Force space assets.

Researchers at the +University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have demonstrated a new level of optical isolation needed to advance on-chip optical signal processing. The research is supported, in part, by AFOSR PO Dr. John Luginsland, Laser Sources and Materials. +Engineering at Illinois +Engineering at Illinois #BasicResearch #MaterialsScience

Researchers at AFRL’s Materials and Manufacturing Directorate have developed a novel, lightweight artificial hair sensor that mimics those used by natural fliers—like bats and crickets—by using carbon nanotube forests grown inside glass fiber capillaries. The hairs are sensitive to air flow changes during flight, enabling quick analysis and response by agile fliers. The research is supported by AFOSR PO Dr. Les Lee, Mechanics of Multifunctional Materials and Microsystems. #BasicResearch #MaterialsScience #BioInspired
