NASA EPSCoR Stimuli 2014 -15

Representative Dina Titus (1st District)

Representative Mark Amodei (2nd District)

Nevada research, infrastructure development and student training have and are continually being enhanced by NASA EPSCoR programs. During the past year, four research projects and several proposal development efforts were performed by NV System of Higher Education faculty. Research capabilities have been enhanced in a number of science and engineering areas including materials engineering, computer science and hydrology. Specific research topics have included: a better understanding of snow pack and its relationship to climate; physics-based modeling that simulates mechanoelectrical transduction of 3D polymer metal composites; polymer-metal composite behavior under prolonged exposure to space; and development of novel rover localization techniques using horizon line, object recognition techniques for crater and sand dune detection and terrain characterization for rover traversability.
