Late last month, there was a nice write-up of Little Mountain Test Facility (where I work at) on the Boeing website. Originally, it was scheduled for a December release, however, it was delayed until late-March. As a result, we missed the window for a physical copy release in the Boeing Frontiers Magazine (they moved to online-only in January), but nevertheless it is always great getting exposure for our facility.
Anyways, for those curious at what exactly I do for a living, this article provides some insight. Pictured above is me (far right) doing a mock set-up of an experiment in front of our linear accelerator. As mentioned in a prior post, I’ll be presenting the results of that particular machine’s updated capabilities at this year’s Hardened Electronic and Radiation Technology (HEART) conference next week.
Just received some exciting news that I gained final approval and will be making a presentation at the 2017 Hardened Electronics and Radiation Technology (HEART) Conference in Denver, Colorado at the end of April. The topic I’ll be discussing (via the poster session) involves the characterization of our facility’s linear accelerator after some upgrades we recently implemented.
This is the first time in recent memory that someone from my work will be presenting at a conference, so everyone is pretty excited about the opportunity to showcase some of our site’s capabilities. My team worked very hard over a span of several weeks in order to accomplish all the appropriate testing so that I could compile the data and submit my paper to the conference. It was truly a joint effort and I am looking forward to presenting for the first time the results!
