ABOUT THE MEETING:
Each year, e-commerce continues to improve on its already impressive retail sales market share. As brick and mortar stores like Sears and Toys’R’Us file bankruptcy, Amazon and Walmart are growing profits. People want their products faster, cheaper, and with more convenience. Have you ever wondered how Amazon is able to promise 2 day or faster delivery? The key factor driving this capability is automation. To ramp up output, ensure accuracy, and limit downtime, the systems that make this possible are comprised of an increasingly diverse and sophisticated array of electrical devices and control technologies that will be explained and explored.

ABOUT THE MEETING: Our nation spends a fortune on its military, preparing for traditional warfighting in traditional war zones. However, there is an emerging threat to the United States’ national interests that goes beyond the realm of traditional warfare, and that threat extends into space. Our entire national infrastructure depends upon availability of the resources we have in space – from GPS satellites navigating our air traffic, to Wideband Global Satcom satellites providing protected communications to our warfighters in Afghanistan and the Middle East. Our country’s national interests are intimately tied to the availability and affordability of Space assets to enable our national security. This presentation discusses the role of L3 Space and Sensors Technology Center (SSTC)’s role in defending our nation and providing affordable, rapid access to launch assets and satellite communications.

ABOUT THE PRESENTERS: Dr. Robert Hayes is the Director of Advanced Programs at L3 Space Avionics in Mason, Ohio. He leads a team of principle investigators in developing the new technologies that L3 is inserting into its space portfolio. His team’s current research interests include navigation processing for launch vehicles, low cost processing options for satellites, space sensing technologies for overhead persistent infrared (OPIR) missions for missile defense, and microwave technologies to enable high bandwidth communications between space assets and ground assets.

Mr. Gordon Samuels is a Senior Principle Engineer at L3 Intelligent EO Solutions (IES) in Mason, Ohio. IES features a broad array of products ranging from baseball-sized, standard definition IR imagers to ultra large format systems with up to 36 Mpix of resolution. They are fielded on armored vehicles, tanks, fighter aircraft, UAVs, ships, submarine periscopes, foot soldiers, and satellites. IR sensors have emerged as a critical element in both offensive and defensive military and paramilitary systems and will play an increasingly important role in building and maintaining our space borne infrastructure. Mr. Samuels has a BSEE from the University of Cincinnati and an MSEE from the University of Texas at Arlington and has been an IEEE member since 1985..

MENU SELECTIONS: Buffet Menu: Raffel’s Signature Hot Sliced Roast Beef in Gravy, Chicken Marsala, Eggplant Parmesan, Parsley Butterd Red Skin Potatoes, Green Beans Almondine, Tossed Salad, Dinner Rolls & Butter, Tea and soft drinks are included, and alcoholic beverages are available for purchase.

Dinner 7:00 p.m. to 8:45 p.m. – Presentation & Questions

COST: $15- $20, See information in Reservations (Updated)

ABOUT THE MEETING: Power electronics play mission critical roles in automotive, aerospace, medical, telecom and power generation/distribution/transmission applications. A hardware failure in these areas can jeopardize safety and come with serious financial consequences. Prognostic Health Management (PHM) Systems provide real-time situational awareness on the status of equipment along with their constituent components. This enables owner/operators to better anticipate the onset of failures and optimize their preventative maintenance strategies. This presentation summarizes the use of this technology in industry and discusses on-going research in the field. ABOUT THE

PRESENTER: Dr. Mark Scott is an assistant professor at Miami University in Oxford, Ohio. He teaches courses on Electronics, Power Electronics, and Electric Vehicles. His research team evaluates the design trade-offs associated with using silicon carbide (SiC) and gallium nitride (GaN) power devices in electrified transportation and renewable energy applications. The emphasis of their work is on the conducted electromagnetic interference (EMI) and prognostic health management (PHM) techniques for power conversion hardware. Additionally, they explore the benefits of using wide bandgap devices in isolated DC/DC converters.

Cincinnati IEEE Volunteers Needed

Local IEEE activities such as monthly Section presentations, scholarships, and STEM events are organized and delivered by IEEE Cincinnati volunteers. These activities provide the members an opportunity to meet other local engineers face to face and increase their knowledge of diverse engineering activities such as power, communications, and IOT.

We need your help to continue to provide these service to our Cincinnati IEEE members. Please consider volunteering as a member of the Cincinnati Section Executive Committee. This is a great opportunity to meet new people and support our community. We typically meet four evenings per year to plan our activities, plus some time implementing those activities.

The following positions are open with elections held this Fall for a two year term starting January 1, 2019.

Chair
Vice Chair
Treasurer
Secretary
Member at Large

In addition to the elected positions above we are in need of a Webmaster to maintain the IEEEcincinnati.org website. Assistance with the Professional Activities, Membership, and Arrangements is also welcome.

Please send an email to ted.longshore@ieee.org if you are interesting in volunteering for any of the above positions.
