Draper Lab hosts Tech Expo


Students and faculty are invited to Draper Lab's Technology Exposition on Oct. 3-4 to see the lab's projects and technologies and discuss them with Draper staff. The Tech Expo will be open to students and faculty on Wednesday, Oct. 3 from noon to 4 p.m. and on Thursday, Oct. 4 from 9 a.m. to noon.

Exhibit topics will include space systems; autonomous and semiautonomous land- and air-based vehicles, including the Wide Area Surveillance Projectile; information management and control, including fault-tolerant technologies for air traffic management; manning reduction technologies; integration of global positioning systems with inertial navigation systems; and a variety of independent research and development projects. A number of these projects have been worked on by MIT students, particularly through the Draper Fellow Program.

Visitors are asked to call ahead of time to the office of Education Director George Schmidt at x182-83841 (or 617-258-2600 from outside MIT), or to send e-mail to gschmidt@draper.com.
