In work sponsored by the Air Force Research Laboratory, Georgia Tech Research Institute (GTRI) researchers have developed a computer-based simulation technique that permits the characterization of complex natural and engineered materials.
The new technology, developed under the Active Electro-Optical Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (AEO-ISR) project, would let modest-sized unmanned aerial vehicles carry bathymetric lidars.
A gene normally involved in the regulation of embryonic development can trigger the transition of cells into more mobile types that can spread without regard for the normal biological controls that restrict metastasis, the new study shows.
Georgia Tech Research Institute (GTRI) researchers are working with a company in Huntsville, Alabama, and the U.S. Missile Defense Agency (MDA) to test high-altitude missiles without ever firing a shot.
GTRI’s Quantum Systems Division (QSD) uses individual trapped atomic ions as qubits in its research. In collaboration with university and industry partners, QSD scientists recently demonstrated two new ion traps, including one that uses a system of integrated mirrors to read data from multiple ions.
Crowd science is making possible research projects that might otherwise be out of reach, tapping thousands of volunteers to help with tasks such as classifying animal photos, studying astronomical images, and counting sea stars in photos.
Gathering and understanding cyber intelligence is the work of BlackForest, an intelligence gathering system developed at the Georgia Tech Research Institute (GTRI). By using such information to create a threat picture, BlackForest complements other GTRI systems designed to help corporations, government agencies, and nonprofit organizations battle increasingly sophisticated threats to their networks.
Julia Lundrigan is a third-year graduate student in Georgia Tech’s School of Aerospace Engineering (AE). She studies how flames behave in aircraft and power generation engines at Georgia Tech’s Ben T. Zinn Combustion Lab, where engineers use the latest tools for the study of combustion and fluid mechanics.
