We run a fairly structured shop as our seasonal Syllabus reveals.  From time to time -- today at 15:00 UTC -- we throw our agenda "open".  Unstructured.  Completely determined by the interest of our clients, colleagues and followers.

Space Force Academy

"Space is the ultimate high ground. Space capabilities fuel our way of life and our way of war. Here we are learning space by doing space, in an undergraduate space program unlike any other in the world. We are able to design, build, test and fly operational satellites.  The Space Force was created to keep our satellites safe and operational and develop technology to protect our interests both in space and on Earth."

Syllabus: Spring

College campuses are the closest many people come to living in a beautiful city. The catalog of literature that informs the safety and sustainability of these "cities-within-cities" changes 100 to 1000 times per day. Titles in this catalog are unstable, time-sensitive and copyright protected. We break down standards action every day, assign priorities, then schedule a separate teleconference to formulate responses to public consultations. Daily colloquia topics appear on our CALENDAR.

Homeland Power Security

We collaborate with the US Army Corps of Engineers harvesting data for its homeland power reliability enhancement project. Artificial intelligence applications to power systems depend upon an statistically significant data set for "training" power systems within education facilities and in the communities that host them. We encourage our colleagues in education community facility units to contribute data to this project.
