The Reentry Breakup Recorder-Wireless 2 finally returned home today, but failed to send data as the Cygnus cargo craft burned up in the atmosphere. The year and a half in space may have proved too much for the REBR-W2, which was designed for a relatively short duration mission on orbit.
The Aerospace Corporation recently partnered with the Long Beach Fire Department for a project that has the potential to save lives and drastically improve public safety for the city's residents. The LBFD is the proud owner of a brand new, state-of-the-art fireboat, permanently docked at the firehouse in the Port of Long Beach.
A handful of scientists and engineers within the Remote Sensing Department needed a telescope with multiple capabilities, and close at hand. So, they built one. When a new laboratory on the El Segundo campus was constructed, the scientists were asked to forward any requests they had for new capabilities.
Aerospace, in partnership with NASA, is on the cutting edge of the next big thing in ion engine propulsion - the aptly named NASA Evolutionary Xenon Thruster (NEXT). The NEXT, which was developed at the NASA Glenn Research Center, is the newest generation of electric ion thrusters and has a fuel efficiency that is 5-to-20 times greater than a chemical thruster.
Six Aerospace mentors and 34 St. Bernard High School students partnered to help more than 70 middle school students put together engineering projects Saturday, Nov. 15, at St. Bernard's campus in Playa Del Rey. The STEM Summit, which coincided with the school's annual open house, was spearheaded by Aerospace board of trustees member, NASA astronaut, and retired Air Force Gen.
Rachel Morford, an electrical engineer and a senior member of the technical staff at Aerospace, was chosen as one of this year's Society of Women Engineers' (SWE) five New Faces of Engineering. New Faces award recipients are all under 30 years old, and the intent is to recognize engineers who have been working in the industry for less than 10 years.
When the unmanned Antares rocket exploded Oct. 28, along with an Aerospace-built Reentry Breakup Recorder-Wireless (REBR-W), it took only three minutes before NASA was on the phone with Aerospace asking for a replacement REBR-W. The REBR-Ws are used to collect and transfer reentry data from vehicles returning to Earth from space.
There's a new cyber sheriff in town. Hardware and Embedded Cyber (HEC), a recently created section in the Cyber Security Subdivision within the Communication and Cyber Division at Aerospace, fulfills the corporate need to comprehensively address the hardware side of cybersecurity.
Part 1: FIRST Robotics Part 2: Programming Part 3: Electrical and Pneumatics Part 4: Mechanical Part 5: The Stronghold Games Each year, dozens of The Aerospace Corporation's science and engineering experts volunteer to serve as professional mentors to teams of middle and high school robotics fanatics for the annual FIRST Robotics competition.
When you've practically lost yourself to a wartime attack, been set on fire, clawed yourself free of wreckage without all your limbs intact, your face, arms, legs, even your eyelids are burned away, and you have no idea how you lived through all this, you can't just come home.
The Marines, sailors and families of 2nd Battalion, 7th Marine Regiment, said and hugged their goodbyes Wednesday morning as the War Dogs left for their first combat deployment since 2008. The unit is headed to the familiar sands of Afghanistan, but this, News Article Display page
'Green' technology could save lives, money By Sgt. Heather Golden | | June 3, 2011 MARINE CORPS AIR GROUND COMBAT CENTER TWENTYNINE PALMS, Calif. -- A routine training exercise at the Combat Center's Marine Corps Training and Operations Group provided the perfect opportunity to test new "green" technology that could save the Corps money, time, and most importantly, lives on the battlefield.
