The Georgia Tech Research Institute (GTRI) has welcomed the fall 2022 cohort into its Military Graduate Research Program (MGRP). MGRP offers U.S military personnel the opportunity to conduct Department of Defense-related research in a GTRI lab while simultaneously obtaining a master's degree in a science, technology, engineering, or math (STEM)-…

With the research landscape rapidly changing, Georgia Tech must respond to external forces to address local, national, and global challenges and produce novel ideas ​and actionable solutions.​ In alignment with the Institute strategic plan, Research Next positions Georgia Tech to respond to future challenges with innovation, expertise, creativity…

In-flight emergencies occur infrequently on military aircraft, but when they do happen, flight crews must be able to quickly diagnose the problem and determine what action to take. An electronic Quick Reference Handbook (QRH) could soon give crews of KC-135 Stratotankers an app-based resource to help them quickly diagnose problems and identify…

Most materials – from rubber bands to steel beams – thin out as they are stretched, but engineers can use origami’s interlocking ridges and precise folds to reverse this tendency and build devices that grow wider as they are pulled apart. Researchers increasingly use this kind of technique, drawn from the ancient art of origami, to design…

GPS signals are critical to military navigation, particularly for small and inexpensive autonomous UAVs where size, weight, and power (SWaP) limitations are critical. But because they rely on low-power radio frequency signals from orbiting satellites, these GPS navigation systems are susceptible to disruption by adversaries. Concern about the…

No matter the season, ensuring that soldiers remain safe during training exercises is important.     The Georgia Tech Research Institute (GTRI) is collaborating with the U.S. Army in the development of its Health Readiness and Performance System (HRAPS), which is a wearable sensor system that provides real-time monitoring of the physiological and…

The Enterprise Innovation Institute is Georgia Tech’s chief economic development arm. With more than a dozen programs, it serves all of Georgia and beyond through a variety of services and offerings that build and scale startups, grow business enterprises, and energize ecosystem builders. This installment of the Faces of Research Series Q&A…

Neuroblastoma is a terrifying word for parents of young kids. This solid tumor cancer develops in the nerve tissue, primarily affects infants, and typically comes with a grim prognosis. “There is a very high morbidity and mortality rate for these babies,” said researcher Vahid Serpooshan, an assistant professor in the Wallace H. Coulter…

Along with the Georgia Tech faculty tapped and reappointed as Regents’ Professors and Researchers at the Aug. 9 University System of Georgia (USG) Board of Regents meeting were five Georgia Tech professors named to the new distinction of Regents’ Entrepreneur. Georgia Tech faculty named as the first Regents' Entrepreneurs in the USG include …
