The TEES Nuclear Security Science and Policy Institute (NSSPI) hosted the first leg of the four-week-long Nuclear Security Training Series (NSTS) at Texas A&M University from July 2-10. Twenty-seven students and six faculty members from seven universities in India and one Brazilian university participated in the 2016 NSTS, which was sponsored by the U.S. State Department's Partnership for Nuclear Security with logistics coordination by CRDF Global. The NSTS aims to further the study of nuclear security best practices at universities in India and Brazil and to promote academic research in this field.

Texas A&M student developing myoelectric signal capture to help patient recovery

Sungtae Shin, a doctoral student in Texas A&M University’s Department of Mechanical Engineering, has been researching myoelectric interfacing, reading the electrical signals from muscles, as part of a project designed to create exoskeletons for physical rehabilitation purposes. In an important step toward that goal, Shin has successfully used a myoelectric controller worn like an armband to operate a robotic arm.

Skelton receives NIAC funding to explore tensegrity solutions to manned spaceflight

Dr. Skelton's proposal "“Tensegrity Approaches to In-Space Construction of a 1g Growable Habitat” was selected by the NASA Innovative Advanced Concepts Program to receive as much as $500,000 in funding over the next several years. Dr. Skelton's research is exploring tensegrity as a structural paradigm for future space stations to, among other things, bring artificial gravity to astronauts, an important step for the future of long-term spaceflight. As a first step, Dr. Skelton's group will focus on the design of the habitat and how it will grow in space, as well as looking at smart manufacturing and robotics technologies to manufacture structures in space.
