    • 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM
    • 701 E ML King Blvd.

    On site at the SimCenter at UTC.  The feature of the day will be the Unmanned Systems Lab (USL). The research focus is in developing unmanned cooperative robotic technologies.  In this lab they develop and program a group of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV), also known as drones, and/or ground robots to perform missions cooperatively with little to no human input.  Some areas using this system include:  search and rescue, single and multiple target tracking, extending GPS range indoors and creating ad-hoc networks in disaster areas.  The project that has gained the most attention is controlling a drone with brain waves. It's  still in its early phases, but they use brain signals from an electroencephalogram (EEG) to send commands to the drone to take off and land.  Finally, they will give a general overview of a project using drones to help end Malaria in parts of Africa.


    Parking for this event is available at UTC in Lot 49.  Parking passes for Lot 49 will be provided.  Entrance to the building is adjacent to the parking lot.  SimCenter is on the corner of Peeples and E ML King at 701 E ML King.

    The Evolution of Environmental Engineering in the Military

    Colonel Michael R. Newberry, Retired, will present the U.S. Air Force’s environmental engineering program’s evolution from his early days working in the Bioenvironmental Engineering in 1977,  until his retirement in 2003.  Mike’s experiences start with working in the occupational health survey work, developing spill response procedures to addressing all areas of environmental protection for the Air Force.  His career was fulfilling, rewarding and inspiring which resulted in writing a book for his family, friends and grandchildren!  This presentation will be extremely informative, interesting and educational as to why engineers are required to perform the work of Bioenvironmental Engineering in the military!

    Michael R. Newberry Bio

    Colonel Michael R. Newberry’s (Retired) military career encompasses 26 years as a Bioenvironmental Engineer.  After graduating from the University of Florida with a B.S. in Environmental Engineering Sciences in 1977 Mike joined the Air Force to work in the Bioenvironmental Engineering area.  During his 26-year career he has managed numerous Air Force Bioenvironmental Engineering Departments, an Environmental Flight, and an Environmental Directorate with up to 60 employees and $30 million annual budgets.  As an environmental manager in the Pentagon, he published 17 Air Force policies signed by the Office of the Air Force Chief of Staff: co-authored the Air Force Hazardous Material Emergency Planning and Response Guide, and authored the principle Air Force environmental policy directive.  He led the rewrite of all Air Force environmental regulations into Air Force instructions.  Mike was highly successful in gaining public support for military operations by strategically developing exemplary environmental programs.
