Darpa Director Shares Vision of a New Generation of Technology and Commercial Applications at SPIE Defense, Security, and Sensing
Date:4/30/2013

s such as night vision, smart prostheses, and cyber security, and underscored reports heard in the conference rooms throughout the day.

Among talks were:

  •     Sarah Crites from the University of Hawaii team reported on development of a tiny satellite with a sensor just over 16 inches long set to launch in Hawaii this fall. Called the SUCHI, for Space Ultra Compact Hyperspectral Imager, the compact spectrometer is designed to characterize the geology of major rock-forming minerals on the Earth from space. Principal investigator is Robert Wright, a professor in the Hawaii Institute for Geophysics and Planetology.
  •     Daniel Malamud of New York University presented on a microfluidic card for field analysis of blood or other fluids. The card was developed in collaboration with Rheonix Inc., and is used to detect proteins and nucleic acids, such as antibodies to HIV and HIV RNA.
  •     Charles Steckfus, a professor of diagnostic sciences at the School of Dentistry at the University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston, described how the proteome in saliva is used to provide insights into breast cancer progression.
  •     Michael Kolodny, an independent senior technology advisor to the Army Research Lab, spoke on a theme of several of the week’s sessions and panels: Big Data. He offered an alternative paradigm. Rather than focusing on the enormous volume of data, he suggested focusing on a synthesis of relevant data, using only enough for decision making, assessing the value of sources based on their contributions to the analysis, and using data for understanding, not for reconstructions of reality.

Registration for conferences and educational short courses as well as free registration for the exhibition are available on site. News and photos from the event are being updated throughout the week, at '/>"/>
