UC Riverside IEEE Student Branch Receives Award from Region 6
The IEEE Student Branch at the University of California, Riverside, received the 2016 Outstanding Large Student Branch from IEEE Region 6. Congratulations on this achievement.
IECES. Ontario International Airport Update
6:00 – 9:00 PM, 02/22/17, @University of Redlands, Redlands, CA
Ontario International Airport Update
Kelly Fredericks, Chief Executive Officer
In December of 2015, a historic settlement agreement was executed setting the stage for the Ontario International Airport Authority (OIAA) to assume complete ownership and oversight of the Ontario International Airport (ONT) during the second half of 2016. On March 7, 2016, Mr. Kelly Fredericks joined the OIAA as its first Chief Executive Officer. Reporting to a five (5) person Board of Commissioners, Mr. Fredericks is responsible for overall management, operations, development, and marketing oversight activities of ONT, a medium commercial service airport and transportation hub serving the Inland Empire, with a service area that includes a population of over six (6)million in San Bernardino and Riverside counties, as well as portions of Orange and Los Angeles counties. Mr. Fredericks’ presentation will provide an update of ONT and his vision for the future of this important airport.
$25 for engineers or guests, and $15 for students. Meal included with ticket. Need to RSVP
Satellite Communications: Accomplishments and a Look Into the Future
9:30 AM – 12:00 PM, 02/25/17, @Devry University, Pomona, CA
Presented by Frank G Freyne, PhD
The concept of using orbiting satellites is of recent origin, being formulated in the early post-WWII era. Not surprisingly, their topical need originated as potential solutions to then-current practical problems. How do we improve telephonic communication over longer distances with better reliability and lower cost? This talk will trace some of that history, from the earliest days, through the NASA successful multi-mission ATS-6 satellite, up to the present day. Since some many of the advances in Electrical and Electronics Engineering were made to support satellite communications, we will discuss these advances. We will note many of these concepts and techniques, such as, “How do we satisfy the Link Budget and obtain a satisfactory Signal-to-Interference-to Noise ratio?” .These concepts will directly carry over to the 4G-LTE and 5G requirements, design, and development era. Finally, we will discuss our current satellite efforts, and project the future advances that are approaching the drawing board.
Free event. RSVP
