Researcher investigating new types of blast-resistant glass

Professor Hani Salim is studying new types of blast-resistant glass. Buildings have some level of protection against explosions, thanks to the work of Mizzou Engineers; however, windows remain a hazard. Now, Professor Hani Salim is looking into innovative new ways to keep glass from shattering in the event of a blast. Salim, who’s in the [...]

Grant from the Army Research Office Enables New Generation of Multispectral Infrared Imagers

This graphic shows four different metasurface integrated microbolometers with different response. A Mizzou Engineer and collaborator at the University of Notre Dame have received a grant from the Army Research Office to enable a new generation of multispectral infrared (IR) imagers. Mahmoud Almasri, an associate professor of electrical engineering and computer science (EECS), is working [...]

Mapping the Cities of the World One Building at a Time from Space

The team used medium-resolution images to try to identify buildings from satellite images (ground-truth in the middle and algorithm results on the right). A group of four computer science PhD students in the Computational Imaging and VisAnalysis (CIVA) Lab: Rina Bao, Imad Toubal,  YangYang Wang and Noor Al-Shakarji at Mizzou Engineering took the top spot [...]

Team Devising Way to Analyze Images from Drone Footage

This photo illustration shows how a drone captures aerial video of a farm. A Mizzou research team is devising a way to pull high-resolution images from that video footage automatically. Imagine being able to assess the health of a single plant in the middle of a field by automatically analyzing a photo of it. The [...]
Powering the Army of the Future

Powering the Army of the Future

Professor Bill Ma in the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering is proposing new electric power technology to support Army operations in 2035. Solar energy is expected to meet the energy demand for a variety of equipment associated with Army multi-domain operations in the future. Ma, who co-authored with Pengtao Wang, presented his white paper […]
