“Transforming Medical Logistics with Drones:
Bringing Health Products to Africa, the US & Beyond”

Speaker: Whitney H Huang

Embedded Software Engineer, Zipline International

The COVID-19 pandemic, natural disasters and war have rendered the timely delivery of vaccines, blood, medicines, personal protective equipment, food and other critical supplies --- more urgent than ever. Yet, often the only way to get such desperately needed items safely through to their destinations is with delivery drones. What recent technical advances in the design, testing and deployment of such UAVs (unmanned aerial vehicles) are making this possible? Our speaker will delve into aspects of Zipline’s rapid, integration-level testing that include: HITL (Hardware-in-the-Loop) testing; a Fault Injection testing system that induces pathological failure modes (in-flight); her software for a Motor Pod End-of-Line tester; and embedded and backend software for Zipline’s Launcher system. The company is a major deliverer of blood products to Rwanda and Ghana, and runs more than 200 flights/day halfway around the world, 24/7. To help accomplish this, Whitney became a certified Flight Operator and Controller, with FAA Part 107
certification.

“Offshore Aquaculture & World Protein Demand:  Commercial Incentives to Fulfill Conservation Imperatives”

Speaker:  Neil Anthony Sims, Founder & CEO, Ocean-Era, Inc.

 

For registration please go here.

 

 

Demand for fish and seafood is the world’s fastest growing protein food sector.  Indeed, the authors of the 2019 UN High Level Panel on the Oceans and Climate Change urged human transition from terrestrial to more marine-sourced foods.  But with wild stock fisheries already at their peak (and possibly beyond), how do we achieve this?  Can we really build a healthier environment and have our fish and eat it, too?  Responsible open ocean aquaculture offers solutions.  With decades of experience in tackling these issues, aquaculture pioneer, Neil Sims, p’17, from his operations base in Kona, Hawaii, will present:  a history of open ocean aquaculture; current commercial incentives that are driving it; and the technical innovations Ocean-Era employs to balance marine protein demand with environmental concerns.   There will be ample time for Q & A, with priority given to viewer questions sent in advance to:  propellers@princetonaaa.org.

A PRINCETON PROPELLER EVENT
AT QUADRANGLE CLUB


FOR ENTREPRENEURS,
NAVIGATORS & THE CURIOUS
Please Join Us for Cocktails & Hors d’oeuvres
33 PROSPECT AVENUE – PRINCETON, NJ
6 P, TUESDAY, September 11th, 2018
Speaker: Rich Hollingsworth ’71
Director of Operations, High Asset Tagging, Tego, Inc.
“Radio-Frequency ID in Aerospace, Life Sciences & Beyond:
Collecting, Storing, Managing and Using Intelligent Asset Data”
Managing high value assets, by simple Internet of Things (IoT) connection to “Big Data,” leads to
inefficiencies in handling large volumes of disparate data over long periods (e.g., decades). Asset
identification by reading barcode or RFID EPC and sending to “Big Data” to retrieve asset data is
likewise limiting, where Internet protocols don’t make sense due to cost, latency, or environmental
conditions. But “intelligent assets” use RFID tags with asset data permanently stored on the asset and
read by a simple RFID reader --- eliminating the need for “Big Data.” After describing how Tego delivers
its high memory RFID technology core “intelligent assets” in the aerospace and life science industries,
Rich Hollingsworth will delineate the semiconductor and software development challenges yet to be
met, before “intelligent assets” can be extended to many other industries.

7 P, EASTERN TIME (USA) -- TUESDAY, June 9th, 2020
Speaker: David Herman, MD
Chair, Infection Control, Penn Medicine Princeton Health
“An Up-to-Date Briefing on COVID-19 Infection:
And Dealing with this Pandemic at the Local Level”
Over the past few months, many of us have expanded our virology and infectious disease awareness.
Likewise, epidemiologists, researchers and front-line health care workers have garnered an enhanced
respect from a grateful public. So, it is with special pleasure that the Propellers welcome Infectious
Disease specialist David Herman for a global perspective on our historic pandemic. In particular, he will
discuss how epidemiologists determine the contagiousness of infectious diseases, then delve into the
different types of laboratory testing for SARS-CoV-2, and their attendant implications for controlling
infection spread. He will then delineate changes Penn Medicine Princeton Medical Center has implemented
in response to COVID-19. You may find his facts bracing, but the power of human resilience will also be on
offer. Please note: Zoom Propellers now reach a national (and global) audience, so it’s important to
register: the first 300 people who sign up by June 7th will receive the “Join Meeting Link” on June 8th.
