“MBSE isn’t an overnight activity, it’s an evolution”
Jon Holt, Incose fellow and professor of systems engineering at Cranfield University, is sharing his 30-year experience in model-based systems engineering in a training course that will be offered in collaboration with High Tech Institute. “It’s not about technology, it’s about business change in a technical environment.”
MIT’s wallpaper loudspeaker can cover any surface
A departure from conventional wisdom in loudspeaker design allowed MIT researchers to build paper-thin ones that can be mounted on walls, car interiors and IoT devices.
Boost your digitalization: build and test infrastructure
The traditional way of software development is to first agree on what to build, then build the functionality and finally commence testing and fixing defects until the quality is at an acceptable level. As anyone who has spent any time in this field knows, no software is ever flawless, but the concept is to get the critical and major defects removed and bring the level of minor defects down to a reasonable number.
A Dutch hub for processing data in new space
In the ‘New Space’ age, satellite technology is no longer the exclusive domain of the really big players such as NASA and ESA. Cubesats and other smallsats now offer commercially viable options to a wide range of interested parties. Dutch optical sensors have always played a prominent part in conventional space technology. A new control and data processing unit for optical instruments on smaller satellites strengthens this position in new space even more.
