Dr. Ken Goretta recently hosted the 2017 GHz-THz Electronics Program Review. This program seeks scientific breakthroughs in materials and devices that can lead to game-changing capabilities in RF sensing and amplification, transmit/receive functions, wideband operation, reconfigurability, and novel functionality. The primary frequencies of interest range from GHz to THz.

A team of engineers, led by Professor Sertac Karaman, MIT Aeronautics and Astronautics, and Professor Vivienne Sze, MIT EECS Department, have developed a new method for designing computer chips tailored for miniature smart drones. The new methodology and design, called "Navion," will be presented at the Robotics: Science and Systems conference this week at +Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). The research is supported by Sze's 2016 AFOSR YIP award entitled, "Energy-Efficient High-Performance Computer Vision Systems." #AFOSRYIP #systems #software #drones #rss2017

Nature has inspired scientific and engineering innovations for hundreds of years. For scientists at AFRL, it is the hairs on bats and crickets that inspired the creation of artificial hair sensors, destined to change the course of agile flight. The research is supported by AFOSR PO: Dr. Les Lee, Mechanics of Multifunctional Materials and Microsystems, PI: Dr. Jeffrey Baur, principal engineer in the structural materials division, materials and manufacturing directorate.
