A Case Study Of Applying Node.Js In Basic Drone Programming And Web Development, Jeremy Kim, Alireza Khamesipour, Charith Atapattu, Mahdi Moradi, Abdallah Jameel Al-Khayri Nov 2017

A Case Study Of Applying Node.Js In Basic Drone Programming And Web Development, Jeremy Kim, Alireza Khamesipour, Charith Atapattu, Mahdi Moradi, Abdallah Jameel Al-Khayri

ASA Multidisciplinary Research Symposium

In this research, we first seek to determine if basic drone programming can give insight to learning Node.js and be applied to web development through using Node.js and the Drone. Second, we seek how drone programming can help student recruitment by using a showcase.


High Altitude Balloon Flight Predictions, Sara Stafford Oct 2017

High Altitude Balloon Flight Predictions, Sara Stafford

2017 Academic High Altitude Conference

The ability to make accurate predictions of a high altitude balloon’s flight trajectory is critical for safety, protection of sensitive payloads, and ease of payload recovery. Several free software programs and websites are available which make predictions straightforward and yield acceptable results. Additional resources are presented which help evaluate the stability of the projected flight track. The various methods of prediction will be described and results compared with actual flight data.

Controlled Heading Automation Device, Robert Coulson

2017 Academic High Altitude Conference

One of the most significant limitations of weather balloon-based data collection is that instruments and payloads cannot depend on particular orientations or predictable rotation. Several investigators have used payload heading control devices to overcome this limitation in order to collect directional data and record motion controlled video footage. The work described in this presentation builds on the Controlled Heading Automation Device (CHAD) developed by Kruger et al. (2016) and was carried out at DePaul University in summer 2017 as an undergraduate research project. Our goal was to record stable video of the shadow of the moon on Earth’s surface ...


Balancing The Navigational Safety, Efficiency & Financial Aspects Of Oreis, Raza Ali Mehdi Jan 2017

Balancing The Navigational Safety, Efficiency & Financial Aspects Of Oreis, Raza Ali Mehdi

MARENER 2017

The increasing number and sizes of offshore renewable energy installations (OREIs), combined with the ambitious plans for future developments in the sector, portray a bleak outlook for ‘traditional’ maritime and marine players: if the current plans for OREIs are realized, sea-space will become increasingly restricted for activities such as shipping.

Sustained growth of both OREIs and shipping may thus lead to situations where certain risk control options (RCOs) need to be adapted in order to maintain safety – despite the fact that such measures themselves may be counter-productive in terms of energy efficiency or financial sustainability. This leads to the question ...
