The Greater Spokane Agricultural Area consortium recently toured WSU. The use of Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) research is a hot topic in Ag and the HYPER lab has several projects poised to make advances. The original article can be found here:
HYPER lab member Ian Richardson is featured in WSU news as one of 3 graduate students to win a national research fellowship:
Jeremy Felt represented WSU at WordCamp San Francisco last weekend. His point, in my opinion, foreshadows the bright future for communication we have here at WSU:
Check out our lab’s feature on pages 36 & 37 in the August edition of Cold Facts: The Magazine of the Cryogenic Society of America. Jake Fisher and Ian Richard are highlighted in the piece.
The award winning hydrogen fuel station designed by Ian Richardson, Jake Fisher and Dr. Jake Leachman was mentioned in the latest version of Alaska Airline’s Magazine. The excerpt is available here on page 34 or is provided bellow.
“In May, a team comprising WSU students and one University of Idaho student-involved in academic tracks ranging from mechanical engineering to economics and public policy-won first place in an international student competition to design a transportable, stand-alone, economical refueling station for hydrogen fuel cell-power cars, whose use may help reduce carbon dioxide emissions.”
HYPER lab members Jacob Fisher and Ian Richardson wrote an article for the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) about a design for a hydrogen fueling station. The station is designed to support Fuel Cell Electric Vehicles (FCEV) during the early expansion of this new market. Follow the link below to read more about the design and the competition it won…
Google’s project Loon may be our best chance at saving the planet. Free access to humanity’s collective knowledge will do more than anything to assist those in 3rd world countries to help themselves,, and to inform those of us in the 1st world how bad things really are. The irony of Loon may be the “Balloon-powered” part of the “internet for all” slogan.
The balloons used in Loon are inflated with helium, yes the same gas filling in your party balloons, that is truly a depleting planetary resource. Helium cannot be created by any process besides nuclear reactions, in the sun or deep in the earth, and has escape velocity. … » More …
The Genii UAS developed by WSU MME students and the HYPER lab was recently shown in Governor Inslee’s Aerospace promotional video. Yet again demonstrating the incredible heights WSU students can achieve.
