Operated a tutorial program for the astronomy department as well as working
with Native American students in El Monte. The goal is to encourage those
students to enroll in PCC and transfer to CSULA.
Attended the weekly seminars of SPACE Laboratory. The topics include:
shape control of JWST using decentralized control technology, embedded
control architecture of JWST, scheduling of parallel signal processing
tasks, FITS Viewer Design, astronomical image compression and enhancement.
Hosted the SERENADES Laboratory Technical Workshop, June, 2005. 11 presentations
Field trip on Friday May 13th to NASA Goldstone. We toured radio telescopes
of the Deep Space Network.
Field trips to NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory. We toured the Microelectronics
Device Lab and the Mars Sandbox.
Lecture entitled “The Search for Extrasolar Planets,” which
reviewed the searches that are currently underway for planets around other
Seminars and workshops on various space science topics: students obtained
fundamental knowledge in space science, and were exposed to some widely
used astronomical software package such as IDS, SkyView, and IRAF.
Training courses on astronomical image processing.
Continually attending the Physics and Astronomy colloquia.
Attended regular meetings of the Physics Club, and participated in related
activities such as astronomy workshops at the California Science Center
at Zzyxx, CA.
A course - EE 454 Real-time Multimedia Systems - is currently being developed
to provide students with knowledge of a client-and-server model of real-time
operations for interdisciplinary applications.
Other courses include PHYS 311 Elements of Modern Astronomy and PHYS 412
Lab Applications of Minicomputers and Microcomputers.
Two undergraduate students have participated in summer internships with
Boeing and JPL.
Two graduate students have been enrolled in the NASA Planetary Science
Summer School hosted by JPL.
One undergraduate student from the SERENADES Laboratory has enrolled in
the M.S. program at USC. The personnel will focus on fault-tolerant, real-time
embedded architecture of the SPACE testbed.
