Anybody up for a meetup on March 11 in Los Angeles? I'll be in town :-)

omega tau's new episode is on space software development:

http://omegataupodcast.net/236-space-flight-software/

Last fall I visited ESTEC, ESA’s space research and technology center. In this first of three episodes, I talk with Maria Hernek, who heads the Flight Software Systems section. We talk about the challenges of space flight software, the development processes used by ESA and its vendors, as well as means of ensuring the required quality attributes. This episode can be seen as a continuation of the conversation with Andreas Wortmann in the OHB episode.

APG's Miami Rick is the guest for this new episode:

http://omegataupodcast.net/235-a-walk-in-the-woods-with-miami-rick-and-the-big-boeings/

Rick Ruiz is a pilot for Atlas Air where he flies various versions of the Boeing 747 freighter. Previously he flew the 767 and the 777 for LAN Chile, primarily cargo as well. Rick is also a crew member of the Airline Pilot Guy podcast, where he is known as Miami Rick. In this episode, we stroll through the woods around Landstuhl, Germany, where I visited Rick while he was on a layover. We geek out about flying the Big Boeings.

In der neuen Folge von omega tau geht es um die Flugsicherung am Beispiel des Center und Tower in München:

http://omegataupodcast.net/234-flugsicherung-bei-der-dfs-in-munchen/

Im Rahmen einer München-Reise im Herbst habe ich die Deutsche Flugsicherung in München besucht und habe mich mit den beiden Lotsen Lars Albrecht und Mathias Andlinger unterhalten. Wir starten mit einer allgemeinen Einführung in Lufträume, Verfahren und die diversen Bodenfunkstellen. Dann besichtige ich mit Lars das Center in München und mit Mathias den Tower; dort unterhalten wir uns jeweils nochmal über die Spezifika der beiden Aufgabengebiete.

New Episode on bio-inspired systems, with EPFL's Darja Dubravcic

http://omegataupodcast.net/233-bio-inspired-systems-at-epfl/

Last fall I visited EPFL for a programming languages workshop when I saw a poster on bio inspired systems. Darja’s name was on the poster because she coordinates the programme; I sent her an email and asked if she wanted to talk a bit with me about this field while I am at EPFL. Her calendar had some free time, and so we met. In the episode we discuss why it makes sense for system designers to look at biology and nature as an inspiration and then explore lots of examples that are currently being researched at EPFL.

Topics that are either recorded or scheduled for recording:

Bio-Inspired Systems at EPFL
Flugsicherung: Center, Approach, Tower
Space Flight Software
Electric Propulsion
ESTEC Test Facility
Synthesizers
The Saturn V Launch Vehicle
Flugzeuggestütze Atmosphärenphysik mit HALO
Formal Program Specification
A walk in the woods with Miami Rick and the big Boeings
Stromnetze
Design und Auslegung von Windpropellern
SAR-Satelliten

Die neue Episode ist online; dieses Mal geht's um die Fernsehproduktion beim Bayerischen Rundfunk:

http://omegataupodcast.net/232-fernsehproduktion-beim-bayerischen-rundfunk/

Im Herbst war ich in den Fernsehstudios des Bayerischen Rundfunks um zu verstehen, wie Fernsehen gemacht wird. Dazu habe ich mit mit einer Reihe von Gästen unterhalten, die die verschiedenen Aspekte einer Fernsehproduktion – aus technischer Sicht – repräsentieren: Kamera und Bild, Licht, Ton, sowie Ausspielung und Verbreitung.

Something new in your queue: omega tau 231 on the Future Circular Collider with Michael Benedikt and Frank Zimmermann:

http://omegataupodcast.net/231-the-future-circular-colliders/

Particle accelerators are the backbone of today’s particle physics research and help us understand the smallest building blocks our world is made of. To understand this deeper, more powerful accelerators are needed, beyond what is possible with today’s LHC. The world’s physics community is continuously running studies to explore science questions and evaluate the required accelerators; one of those the studies is the Future Circular Collider study led by CERN. In this episode we discuss the science questions as well as the core engineering challenges with the two leaders of the FCC study, Michael Benedikt and Frank Zimmermann.
