Cadets Present Research at MIT Conference
Congratulations to Civil & Mechanical Engineering (CME) Cadets Andres Rodriguez, Mike Flanagan and Kristina Hughes for presenting papers at MIT’s The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) Undergrad Research and Technology Conference. Mike presented work focused on stabilizing helicopter sling load oscillations at high speed. Kristina’s paper focused on stabilizing medevac rescue hoists in a hover, and featured a photo taken by her sister, who is a medevac pilot who has served in Afghanistan. Both projects align with the Army’s Future Vertical Lift initiatives. Andres presented a paper on the Agile Ground Robot that is in development in the Robotics Research Center. Their presentations were based on the work they completed during recent Independent Studies in CME. Well done!
