AIAA's YPSE-09 Conference Results

AIAA's YPSE-09 Conference Results The Baltimore Section of AIAA (American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics) once again organized the Region I Young Professional, Student and Education Conference (YPSE-09) on November 6, 2009 at The Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory, in Laurel, MD. YPSE-09 provided young professionals and students the opportunity to present a work in progress, and network with their peers in the aerospace industry; the conference is also a place where more established professionals (those not in the AIAA Young Professional designation of 35 years old and younger) can share their broad experience with rising professionals. Recruiting and information tables by several local companies were present at the event. The highlight of the conference was a speech by the keynote speaker, Dr. Laurie Leshin the Deputy Director for Science and Technology at NASA Goddard Space Flight Center. Leshin's speech entitled, "Extreme Makeover: Hubble Edition" was well received. Universities represented in the student presentation competition included: Virginia Tech, West Virginia University, Cornell University, University of Wisconson at Madison, the United States Naval Academy and the University of Maryland, College Park. Several Clark School students in Aerospace Engineering took home awards. Graduate Student Papers 1st place: Camilo Aguilera, "Scramjet Mixing Control Using Fin-Guided Fuel Injection." (Advisors: K.H. Yu, B. Pang, Amardip Ghosh, and Allen Winkelmann). Honorable Mention: Nicholas L. Wilson, "Performance Robustness of a Magnetorehological Seat Suspension to Temperature Variations." Undergraduate Student Papers 3rd place: Siddarth Kolluru Venkata, "Active Flow Control: Flow Over Bluff Bodies Using Synthetic Jet Actuators." University of Maryland, College Park. Honorable Mention: Andrew Ellsbury, Conni Cialerglio, "Long Range Link Testing of Commercial off the Shelf Radio Modules for Stratospheric Communications," Laura Meyer, Connie Cialerglio, Andrew Ellsberry, Jarred Young, "Cansat Competition: Small Aerospace Systems Design."
