ProjectsDay_600x600.png2018 Projects Day is Thursday, 03 MAY

Each year, hundreds of cadets from all academic departments participate in Projects Day by presenting a design project or thesis. Whether individually or as a team, cadets demonstrate their ability to integrate academic and military knowledge and skills, as well as demonstrate presentation and communications skills. The event also gives cadets a chance to explore majors, learn from examples, and fulfill an integrative experience requirement.

POC: Dr. Elizabeth Velilla, Institute for Innovation and Development

Highlights from past Projects Days

Cadets Janelle Runion and Rachel Pauley present CAVIAR, an autonomous system to allow seeing-impaired Soldiers a way to enjoy recreational or competitive rowing on their own with the aid of technology. The AVARS project enables individual robots within a swarm to detect vulnerability while providing continous network coverage to mobile clients in a tactical environment. 
Cadets Larraine Saavedra and Nicki Warner wanted to know if an outer vestibule design would increase hygiene, comfort and efficiency in the SIP-Hut used by deployed Soldiers. Cadets Michael Williams and Benton Beltramo presented a modeling approach to identifying high-risk areas for vehicular collisions in the Newburgh-Middletown urban area.
