The Minnesota Space Grant Consortium's High-Power Rocketry Competition for college student teams is underway. Adventium Labs is again an industry sponsor of this exciting competition. Among other goals, the rockets are to reach an apogee of 3,000 ft above ground, deploy an active drag system, and be recovered in flyable condition. They are looking for additional industry sponsors. This is a great way to support tomorrow's problem solvers. Please click here to learn more.
The Army is featuring model-based engineering tools and processes, including some developed by Adventium Labs, as part of an Army solicitation to improve affordability, interoperability, upgradeability, etc. of future vertical lift (think helicopter) capabilities. The JMR TD Architecture Implementation Process Demonstrations (AIPD) effort offers access to these tools and support from Adventium for performers. Click here to learn more.
Adventium Labs is proud to once again sponsor the Robotics Alley conference that will be held December 1 - 2 in downtown Minneapolis. This year promises to be one of the best as robotics business and technical leaders gather to share their insights into the worldwide expansion of robotics and autonomous systems.
The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) has selected Adventium Labs as one of the performers on its Cyber Fault-tolerant Attack Recovery (CFAR) program, worth $5.4M over 42 months if all options are awarded. The CFAR goal is to protect existing and planned software systems in both military and civilian contexts without requiring changes to the concept of operations of these systems.
Adventium has received a 2-year, $750K Phase 2 NASA SBIR to continue work on its Architecture Framework for Fault Management Assessment And Design (AFFMAD) project. The main objective of AFFMAD is to determine the completeness and appropriateness of Fault Management (FM) designs and implementations and assist users in identifying conflicts and inconsistencies between FM approaches and mission requirements as the FM approaches are being developed.
IEEE released a report titled "Building Code for Medical Device Software Security" with the aim to start builders of software for medical devices down the road toward a 'building code' for software security that will reduce the vulnerability of their systems to malicious attacks, just as codes for physical buildings help their designers and builders create structures that resist threats from fire, wind, water and, in some cases, malicious attacks.
Adventium is proud to again sponsor MinneWIC, a regional celebration of Women in Computing in the upper midwest, scheduled for February 20-21, 2015. MinneWIC is modeled after the Grace Hopper Celebration of Women in Computing and will bring together students, faculty, and technology leaders from across Minnesota and neighboring states to discuss the role of women in today's computing and technology fields, share experiences and strategies for success, and explore issues common to women working in these fields.
A paper authored by Adventium's Dr. Martin Michalowski and colleagues from the University of Ottawa and Poznan University of Technology, titled “First-order Logic Theory for Manipulating Clinical Practice Guidelines Applied to Comorbid Patients: A Case Study,” has been selected as one of 15 (out of 249) distinguished papers at the annual American Medical Informatics Association conference taking place November 15-19, 2014 in Washington, DC.
Adventium Labs’ Ken Hoyme has been invited by the FDA to participate at the FDA Public Workshop on Collaborative Approaches for Medical Device and Healthcare Cybersecurity as a panelist for two separate panels - one on cybersecurity gaps and challenges and the other panel will discuss tools and standards development. Mr. Hoyme is a Distinguished Scientist at Adventium Labs and co-chair of the Association for the Advancement of Medical Instrumentation (AAMI) workgroup on medical device security.
