National Drone Safety Awareness Event

The week of Nov 4-10, 2019 is National Drone Safety Awareness week. We push the envelope in our UAS research in order to make advancements for the public good. BUT, it has to be done safely, something we take very seriously. Monday, Nov 4, 2019 at 12:00 in the Schorr Center conference room NIMBUS will […]


Week 10

This past week was the final week of our REU program. On Monday I submitted the rough draft of my final project report. On Tuesday we had a practice poster session with a few other REU groups and then Wednesday afternoon it was time for the real thing. Overall, I thought the poster session went […]


Week Ten

Becoming a pilot may be one of the coolest things someone can do. I recently learned that some of our lab directors are also pilots and fly aircraft locally in Lincoln fairly often. While I already thought they were cool, the overall cool-factor certainly spike a bit. While I can’t fly planes (yet), this week […]


WEEK 10

Departure day. I am so sad, yesterday I said goodbye to all my friends and Nimbus staff. All of us shared incredible moments and I strongly believe that our group “Unnmaned System” was the best ever. Especially, the Nimbus lab is AMAZING and I recommend all of you guys to apply for this program the […]


Week 9

During this week I continue with my investigation, this time on redundancy. I found a publication on the basic understanding on triple modular redundancy for FPGA -based computer systems. The basic idea is that TMR is when you have three processors working simultaneously, and their outputs have voters. The voters select the most popular output. […]


Week 8

During this week I clarified the topics of my investigation that were unclear. I investigated about the effects of single event burnout (SEB) and single event gate ruptures (SEGR). These effects mostly affect power MOSFETS. The main idea is when a high energy particle strikes a power MOSFET it alters the electric field at the […]


Week Nine

Someone once told me that with writing, you only ever have a good draft; a final draft doesn’t truly exist. She was describing the feeling that a paper could always be better, but at some point, it needs to be done enough. The first time I ever experienced this was with art. For a painter, […]


Week 9: Wrapping it Up

The start of my week was dedicated to finishing up the poster. With the deadline quickly approaching (Tuesday at 5 pm), I felt the pressure creeping up, but I also knew that there was no possible way to rush machine learning. I finished my last training session at around noon on Tuesday and was able […]


Week 9

This week was really experiment heavy. We ran multiple tests to try to shave down the various confounding variables that we think may be impacting our research. I read some more literature for my paper that hopefully better explain my thought processes when helping to create the new questionnaires. I really hope these questions actually […]
