Posted:  November 19, 2018

The Research & Innovation Office at CU Boulder is welcoming applications for an Executive Director, National Security who will be responsible for leading efforts to enhance the campus national security-related research enterprise. This position will report directly to the Vice Chancellor of Research and Innovation. The Executive Director will lead an effort to bring the CU Boulder research community together to contribute more comprehensively to national security related R&D, including growing the research portfolio, providing domain expertise to campus, standing up a National Security Faculty Advisory Board, drafting and executing a strategic plan, identifying challenges, opportunities, and innovative solutions to conducting national security-related research, and positioning CU Boulder as a valued resource and thought leader for Federal and industry defense and security initiatives.

Aurora Unveils Solarpowered Autonomous Aircraft

Posted: November 19, 2018

Boeing subsidiary Aurora Flight Sciences has unveiled its Odysseus solarpowered autonomous aircraft.

The ultra-long endurance, high-altitude aircraft is designed to autonomously stay afloat indefinitely.

Built with lightweight materials, Odysseus uses advanced solar cells to obtain energy from the Sun to conduct its operations.

Development of Odysseus is inspired by the Daedalus Project, which was organised and led by Aurora president and CEO John Langford and other Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) colleagues in 1988.

The project involved a 72-mile human-powered flight between the Greek islands of Crete and Santorini.

Langford said: “Odysseus was an idea born out of Daedalus that is now a real solution to advancing the important research around climate change and other atmospheric chemistry problems.

“Odysseus offers persistence like no other solar aircraft of its kind, which is why it is such a capable and necessary platform for researchers. Odysseus will indeed change the world.”

Odysseus aims to facilitate communication and collect data over a specific location, as well as various other missions such as intelligence gathering.

According to the company, the aircraft can be deployed at a fraction of the cost of a satellite and remain airborne for longer when compared with a conventional unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV).

Odysseus can also receive payload and hardware options. It can be easily customised, re-tasked, and relocated according to the mission requirements.

Scheduled to start its first flight next year, Odysseus can benefit the climate and weather researchers by providing measurements of vegetation, ice coverage and flow rates, as well as ground moisture on Earth.

The aircraft can also help provide precise and affordable weather and storm monitoring during peak seasons and severe weather events.

Satellite Operators from around the World, to Convene in Denver for the Bi-Annual Space Situational Awareness (SSA) Operators’ Workshop

Posted: November 12, 2018

November 13-16, satellite operators from around the world will convene in Denver, CO for the bi-annual Space Situational Awareness (SSA) Operators’ Workshop. The workshop allows spacecraft owners/operators to discuss issues related to launch and satellite spaceflight operations. The workshop will include nearly 150 satellite operators and mission stakeholders from commercial and government agencies. Over 15 countries will be represented including the United Kingdom, Germany, France, Japan, Poland, and Turkey, just to name a few. During this four-day workshop, satellite operators will hear presentations on current concepts of operation (CONOPS), the latest risk assessment tools and methods, and lessons learned from specific operational scenarios.

Space Situational Awareness refers to the ability to view, understand, and predict the physical location of natural and manmade objects in orbit around the Earth. Space surveillance has taken on increased importance in recent years, as the near-earth orbital regime becomes more contested, congested, and competitive. With over 308,000 potential space-junk collisions logged just in 2017, the compounding issue of intentional and unintentional threats to space assets will only get worse. With space exploration and commerce about to boom, it's more important than ever to keep track of all the debris.

Why is this event important to Colorado?
Colorado has remained as the second-largest space economy in the nation, according to the Metro Denver EDC’s 2018 Industry Cluster Study for Aerospace. With the vast ecosystem created by high-tech companies, four military commands, and eight major space contractors, Colorado is at the center for aerospace activity.

The event is hosted by SpaceNav, a Boulder-based applied mathematics and aerospace engineering firm. Since 2009, SpaceNav has focused on delivering new, state-of-the-art solutions in the SSA domain for defense and commercial customers around the world including NASA, NOAA, USGS, and Google.
