Georgia Tech Announces GTRI Leadership Change

Lora Weiss, Regents researcher, deputy director, and chief technology officer at GTRI, has agreed to serve as the interim senior vice president and director of GTRI.

Faster Detection, Cleanup of Network Infections are Goals of $12.8 Million Project

Cybersecurity researchers at the Georgia Institute of Technology (Georgia Tech) have been awarded a $12.8 million contract to develop fundamentally new techniques designed to dramatically accelerate the detection and remediation of infections in local and remote networks. Using novel machine learning techniques that take advantage of large datasets, the researchers will develop ways to detect network infections within 24 hours – before invaders can do serious damage.

Atomic Magnetometer Could Have Biomedical, Navigation Applications

Measuring very small changes in the brain’s magnetic fields could lead to a better understanding of maladies such as epilepsy, post-traumatic stress disorder, and traumatic brain injury, but the equipment used for such measurements today is bulky and expensive. Scientists and engineers at the Georgia Tech Research Institute (GTRI) want to address that issue by creating a new generation of atomic magnetometers based on clouds of rubidium atoms.

Helping the Air Force Search for Actionable Intelligence Worldwide

By modeling the flow of information through the DCGS, the Georgia Tech Research Institute (GTRI) is helping the Air Force continuously improve the Air Force Distributed Common Ground System (AF DCGS), boosting efficiency and enhancing its ability to bring together the massive data sets that quickly provide critical information.

Severe Storms Research Center Works to Improve Tornado Warning Time

Four researchers are part of the Georgia Tech Research Institute’s (GTRI) Severe Storms Research Center (SSRC), and for them, a day without clouds is a day without new information on how deadly tornadoes and severe thunderstorms develop and move across the Peach State.

Human Factors Research Helps Accelerate Mission Planning

The key to a successful flight mission is planning – sometimes several hours of it. Georgia Tech Research Institute (GTRI) specialists in human factors and human-computer interfaces are working with the U.S. Naval Air Systems Command (NAVAIR) PMA-281, Strike Planning and Execution Systems in Patuxent River,

Simulation Supports Program to Help Pilots in Degraded Visual Environments

The U.S. Army and the Georgia Tech Research Institute (GTRI) are working together to develop a simulation in support of the Degraded Visual Environment (DVE) program.

Modernizing Information Systems to Support a New Generation of Army Families

The ACS is looking ahead at novel ways to improve how services are delivered and is working with the Georgia Tech Research Institute (GTRI) on a sweeping project to revamp its collection of information systems – key tools used by staff members providing services to Army families.

Robot Monitors Chicken Houses and Retrieves Eggs

A new mobile autonomous robot could perform daily monitoring tasks while safely interacting with chickens in commercial chicken houses, according to researchers at the Georgia Tech Research Institute (GTRI).

Piezoelectric Tiles Light the Way for Kennedy Space Center Visitors

Ilan Stern, a senior research scientist with the Georgia Tech Research Institute, and colleagues, are collaborating on a $2 million project to build a 40,000-square-foot lighted outdoor footpath demonstrating applications of piezoelectricity for renewable energy.
