CU Boulder Executive Director, National Security Job Posting

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.

The Executive Director will work closely and collaborate with campus leadership, faculty, academic units, and business support services to articulate and focus cross-campus strengths and catalyze compelling initiatives in areas of emerging interest for the Department of Defense (DoD), Department of Homeland Security (DHS), the Intelligence Community (IC), other relevant agencies, and industry partners. In addition to identifying and connecting faculty to funding opportunities, the Executive Director will work with deans, department chairs, faculty and administration, including research development, compliance, sponsored programs, university counsel, industry collaboration, and government relations, to identify resources needed to build infrastructure and business operations enabling increased national security-related research.

The Executive Director must have a results-focused mentality with the ability to operate at both strategic and operational levels to substantially increase CU Boulder research expenditures in national security related areas.

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.
