The ESET Program is focused on innovative product and systems development in both undergraduate education and its applied research activities. Working with private and public sector partners, the ESET faculty has chosen a number of major pathways that offer extended opportunities to combine experiential education with scholarly research. Some of these pathways include:
The MISL Architecture Design, Development, and Deployment Pathway is a partnership with the NASA's Controls and Data Handling Branch located at Johnson Space Center in Houston, TX. The architecture provides space-qualified, rack-and-stack layers that allow embedded systems developers to quickly create the hardware platform that meets the specific requirements of the project.
Working with TSTAR and iCaleus, the ESET Mobile Integrated Solutions Laboratory and Product Innovation Cellar are designing and developing a complete NanoSat system. The system will include the mechanical enclosure in vary sizes from 1U to 6U and provide the power, intelligence, monitoring, control, and communications to support a wide range of research projects.
The ESET Mobil Integrated Solutions Laboratory is providing its NESI+ technology to private companies, university researchers, NASA-HUNCH, and the Center for Advancement of Science in Space (CASIS) National Design Challenge teams. The NESI+ embedded hardware/software capability fits in the endcap of a 1U NanoLab enclosure to monitor, control, record, and report data from experiments performed on the International Space Station.
The Public Safety 700 MHz spectrum will support the consumer 4G-LTE technology while adding Quality of Service and encryption not found on consumer networks. The ESET Program in partnership with TSTAR is building a hexcopter-based system that can be used to demonstrate the features of the Public Safety network. This will include two simultaneous data paths: 1) UDP transfer of video, and 2) TCP-IP transfer of control.
