Test Bed and Demo Robot Day at Luncheon

The July luncheon kicked off with a robot demonstration from local science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) students of Innovators Robotics, FIRST Team 3138. FIRST is an abbreviation meaning "For the Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology." FIRST is designed to provide an environment to encourage an interest in STEM by challenging the students to build a robot that performs various tasks. Jerald L. Straw was the luncheon speaker and is the unmanned aircraft systems lead, Air Force Research Lab, and the analyst test bed lead, 711th Human Performance Wing, Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, Ohio. He coordinates UAS flight test requirements and coordinates with the local community, the state of Ohio, the Federal Aviation Administration and headquarters Air Force to meet those requirements. He leads a cross directorate team of 22 scientists and engineers collaborating with the Alliance for Human Effectiveness and Advancement (AHEAD) Consortium to develop an analyst test bed, providing a realistic man-in-the-loop analyst environment with validated subjective and objective measures and metrics for testing potential analysis capability improvements.

In July, the chapter received a robotics demonstration from FIRST Team 3138. The FIRST program inspires interest in science, technology, engineering and mathematics. The team is given a little more than 6 weeks to design, build and program a robot. Afterward, the team can compete against other teams at various regional events, where the winner can then go to the world competition.
