Congratulations to Ph.D. student Patrick Moosbrugger, recipient of the 2016 Kapsch Award for the best Masters thesis from the University of Applied Sciences, Technikum Wien! The Kapsch Award is given for the combination of the innovations and contributions of the MS thesis, outstanding academic performance of the student in coursework, and completing the MS degree exam with honors. Patrick was one of seven awardees across 18 MS degree programs. His MS thesis advances system health management for both safety and security requirements using R2U2.
The story is covered in several places:
ISU Aerospace Engineering Alumni and Boeing CEO Dennis Muilenburg visited the department and met with many of the students and faculty.
Watch the video here.
He was joined by fellow ISU Aerospace Engineering Alumni and former CEO of Lockheed Martin Vance Coffman for a fascinating panel: “Perspectives on Aerospace Leadership.” More information, including the video, is available here.
PI Prof. Kristin Yvonne Rozier presented a poster on current grant “CAREER: Theoretical Foundations of the UAS in the NAS Problem (Unmanned Aerial Systems in the National Air Space)” at the 2016 NSF Cyber-Physical Systems Principal Investigators’ Meeting October 31-November 1, 2016. This seventh annual Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS) PI meeting gathered researchers and collaborators from around the world!
According to the NSF, “The CPS Principal Investigators’ Meeting provided a forum for a wide range of stakeholders in academia, industry, and Federal agencies to review new developments in CPS foundations, to identify new, emerging applications, and to discuss technology gaps and barriers. The program of the meeting included presentations about projects funded by NSF and other agencies, keynotes, panels, discussion groups, and poster & demonstration sessions.”
This year’s NSF CPS PI meeting was held at the Renaissance Arlington Capital View (RACV) Hotel located in the Crystal City Community of Arlington, Virginia at 2800 South Potomac Avenue, Arlington, Virginia 22202. The RACV is 0.9 miles from the Reagan Washington National Airport (DCA). Watching the planes land that will someday fly our research is an exciting experience!
