Arlington, VA (JUNE 10, 2018) – Millennium welcomed several summer interns who worked on complex engineering projects throughout the summer months. The group of engineering interns completed four task assignments for the summer. Two of the summer projects involved fabrication and flight testing of unmanned air vehicles (UAVs). One UAV included specialized hardware and software to accomplish collision avoidance using FAA-prescribed “Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast” (ADS-B) equipment. The second UAV included hardware and software to command and control of multiple “swarming” UAVs performing mock distributed fire-scene surveillance. Both of these UAV-centric projects were accomplished cooperatively with students at the University of Maryland (UMD), wherein flight testing was accomplished within UMD’s caged UAV-test outdoor arena. A third project was dedicated to applying numerical regression of large data sets (“Big Data”) of business-related metrics to forecast the most advantageous business strategies in various competitive situations. The fourth project assessed how to make use of GPS radio signal occultation-driven refraction measurements onboard orbiting spacecraft, converted into globally-distributed vertical profiles of atmospheric properties, to generate and provide highly accurate weather forecasts to our customers, providing part of a real-time situational awareness solution.
