Lt Col (USAF retired) Kent Tiffany is a subject matter expert with Unmanned
Aerial Vehicles (UAVs)  over the past 12 years.  His briefing will present
his past history with Unmanned Aerial Vehicles, Global Hawk and the X-45A
UCAV programs; where he had directinvolvement at Edwards AFB, CA, from
initial flight test to him operationally deploying Global Hawk to the war
shortly after 9/11.  With permission from the U.S. Air Force, he’ll discuss
his support to his company’s present contracts for the Next Generations
Remotely Piloted Aircraft (NGRPA) program, and his work for developing
technologies for the Global Hawk Airborne Sense and Avoid effort (ABSAA). 
Last, Mr. Tiffany though his own company has been working on developing
super long endurance UAV for Group 2 class aircraft(up to 55 lbs.), where
his company’s UAV may be capable of staying airborne for days, weeks and
even possibly months at a time without landing or refueling. 

The briefing will go into some of the technical challenges of developing
the Next Generations Remotely Piloted Aircraft (NGRPA) program with the
multiple aircraft control, automation assist for Close Air Support (CAS)
mission with an aircraft capable flying at nearly 500 mph, pulling 4-Gs and
firing possible weapons with turreted guns, lasers, or other kinetic type
weapons where latency for communications and lack of ground situational
awareness prevents the pilot manually controlling the aircraft during the
engagement sequence.  He will also discuss the challenges of the Airborne
Sense and Avoid effort (ABSAA) effort for Global Hawk, where the challenges
in technology and the certification process with the DoD and the FAA drive
high risk for this program.  Last, he’ll discuss briefly about the future
Department of Homeland Security CBP mission with protecting our Nation’s
borders of over 12,000 miles of border (19,000 with Alaska and Hawaii).

LOCATION:  Raffel’s is located at 10160 Reading Road, south of Glendale-

IEEE Professional Communication Conference 2011

IEEE Professional Communication Conference 2011

 On October 17-19, the IEEE Professional Communication Society will host the International Professional Communication Conference 2011 on the campus of the University of Cincinnati.  As a member of the IEEE Cincinnati chapter, your participation in the conference is encouraged as we network with colleagues, learn about the conference topic of sustainability, and share research and information important to technical communicators, educators, practitioners, engineers, and others! 
This article provides you with a summary of information to plan your attendance at the conference.  All information is available at the conference website
Registration for the conference is online on the conference website.  We have reduced registration fees this year to make the conference more affordable, and you can bring a student for free with your paid registration.  IEEE members enjoy discounted registration, even if you aren’t a member of PCS.   

Professional Development Seminars are offered for Continuing Education Credit (important for Professional Licensure) on Monday and Tuesday, October 17 and 18.  Kim Campbell will offer “Thinking and Interacting Like a Leader” and Michael Alley will offer “Rethinking the Design of Presentation Slides.”  Your seminar registration fee gives you access to all conference sessions and workshops for one day. 

New to IPCC 2011 is the Student Poster Competition, a chance for students to showcase their sustainable solutions to technical challenges.  We hope you will encourage students to participate in the competition, either in person at the conference or virtually. 
A ticket to the conference Awards Reception is included with your registration.  This year’s Reception location is the Newport Aquarium.  The reception will allow us to honor the exceptional contributions of society members Ginny Redish and Judy Ramey, as well as the important work in sustainability communication by Jimmie Killingsworth.  The awards presentation will occur against the backdrop of the spectacular shark tank at the Aquarium.

Noted author Alex Steffen is Monday’s keynote speaker (sponsored by the Charles Phelps Taft Research Center at the University of Cincinnati).  Check our Alex’s website!
