2011 Engineering Lecture Series: Repowering the Military with Alternative Energy
Kane Hall 130, UW Seattle

Tim VinopalThe U.S. military aims to dramatically reduce dependence on imported oil to power ships and aircraft. Join us as alumnus Tim Vinopal, '91, explains how Boeing is developing hydrogen- and solar-powered unmanned aircraft, producing the world’s most-efficient solar cells, testing use of sustainable fuels for tactical aircraft, and designing smart-grid electrical systems for government facilities.

THE 2011 ENGINEERING LECTURE SERIES takes flight to explore the innovations transforming the aerospace industry. Cleaner and green airplanes and ground operations will decrease environmental impact and boost efficiency and sustainability for commercial aviation and the military. On the horizon, autonomous networked vehicles with astonishing capabilities will accomplish missions too dangerous, difficult, or distant for humans. Hear the inside story on the re-engineering of aerospace.
