GSAW 2019 Evening Session

Session 12A: Building the Smarter Enterprise – Examples

Leads: Donald Sather and Michael Campbell, The Aerospace Corporation

Infrastructure is the 80% of the technical iceberg most people don’t see because it is hidden by application and visualization layers as opposed to water. What are the challenges to fielding an infrastructure? What has been done or tried by others? Panelists will present both current and future approaches to build and field flexible enterprise infrastructures that are amenable to change from both a technical and tactical perspective. One will present an architecture that is implemented another how two organizations plan on deploying an enterprise both with discussion to follow.

Session 12B: Building Capacity of NextGen Technology Professionals through STEM Programs

Leads: L. DeWayne Cecil, Destination SPACE and Judy Kerner, The Aerospace Corporation

GSAW will host an evening session devoted to STEM education. The first half of the session will feature presentations by students ranging from high school to graduate level and by professionals and STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) educators from many sectors of the economy who will describe their unique journeys and experiences with STEM education.

The second half of the session will feature a panel that will draw upon professionals across industry, government, and academia. Panelists will come from the Los Angeles Chapter of the International Council on Systems Engineering, the Society of Women Engineers, Seton Hall University, Embry Riddle University, Auburn University, the University of Southern California, and other high school and university programs, as well as from industry. The panel will provide an opportunity for discussion of next steps to address challenges, improve collaborative methods, and strengthen the role science and engineering professionals play in fostering continued innovation and interest in STEM focused educational programs.
