Dr. Leslie Bebout, Microbial Ecologist, Ames Research Center, Moffett Field, CA

Dr. Leslie Bebout works as a microbial ecologist in the Exobiology Branch at NASA’s Moffett Field, CA-based Ames Research Center. She and her colleagues study the complexities of carbon, nitrogen and hydrogen cycling in early Earth and Mars analog microbial systems. They concurrently are using this systems biology approach to work with engineers to design systems geared to optimize the use of water, light and nutrient resources relevant both to the development of new green technologies and space exploration capabilities.

Inductive Technology for Precision Position/Displacement Sensing

Although inductive technology is well known for proximity sensing of electrically conductive 'targets', not so well know is inductive 'eddy current' technology for high precision, high resolution position/displacement sensing. Inductive 'eddy current' technology has a long history in automotive test, condition monitoring of rotating equipment and extreme environment test labs. Its application is only limited by the ingenuity of the design or test engineer, but success in applying inductive 'eddy current' technology, or any sensing technology, hinges on a thorough understanding of that technology's capabilities.

How to Use Bluetooth(R) SMART to Turn a Smartphone Into Your Device's New Control Panel

Bluetooth(R) Low Energy provides manufacturers of industrial and commercial equipment, appliances, and other devices with an opportunity to achieve wireless control, monitoring, troubleshooting, and other functions using a custom-designed app on a standard smartphone or tablet. In essence, the smartphone becomes a function-rich, mobile control panel for the embedded device. The new Anaren Integrated Radio (AIR) A2541 B-Smart module along with TI's BLE stack and Emmoco's enabling software and tools make it easy to create Bluetooth SMART devices without requiring either RF or Bluetooth expertise -- greatly easing the adoption and deployment of this new technology. Presenter Geof Cohler Regional Sales Manager Anaren View the Tech Talk here.

Aviation Thermal Management - When to Use Heat Pipes, HiK Plates, Vapor Chambers, and Conduction Cooling

Flight-critical avionics for Manned and Unmanned Aircraft Systems must be maintained below specific temperatures for mission success. Within the thermal design engineer’s toolbox are several technologies that are often considered for avionics thermal management. These technologies include: heat pipes, high conductivity (HiK) plates (heat pipes embedded into aluminum plate), vapor chambers and conduction cooling using materials such as aluminum or pyrolytic graphite.
