Former Astronaut, Daughter Of Dayton Codebreaker To Speak At IEEE-USA Technical Workshop Friday In Cincinnati

WASHINGTON, May 2, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- A former astronaut and the daughter of a World War II codebreaker will be featured speakers at an aviation and aerospace technical workshop during the IEEE- USA Annual Meeting at the Hilton Cincinnati Netherland Plaza on Friday.  http://www.ieeeusa.org/calendar/conferences/annualmeeting/2012/.

Dr. Charles Camarda, a senior adviser for innovation to the Office of Chief Engineer at Johnson Space Center, will discuss NASA collaborations at 10:30 a.m. Camarda served as a mission specialist on the Space Shuttle Discovery (STS-114) in 2005, the first flight after the Space Shuttle Columbia disaster.

The Return to Flight astronauts docked with the International Space Station and evaluated new procedures for Shuttle safety, inspection and repair. The crew traveled through space for two weeks and 5.8 million miles before landing safely at Edwards Air Force Base in California.

Luncheon speaker Deborah Anderson will talk about her father, Joseph Desch, who as an electrical engineer for the National Cash Register Co. (NCR), led the top secret codebreaking operations in Dayton, Ohio, during World War II. His electronics laboratory designed and manufactured the advanced machine needed to read the encrypted communications of the German Navy's Enigma machine. Desch and his colleagues kept the project secret for 50 years. http://www.daytoncodebreakers.org/.

The program gets underway at 8 a.m. with an introduction by IEEE Dayton Section Chair Rob Ewing. Dr. Michael Wicks of the University of Dayton will follow with a talk on the way forward, and Dr. Chris Baker of Ohio State University will discuss innovation. Dr. Rob Williams of  Tec^Edge will join Camarda in discussing NASA collaborations. At 11:30, Dr. Hao Huang of General Electric will talk about "Next Generation Power Systems – Vision for Midwest."

Three afternoon tracks featuring technical papers, posters and panels will follow. For the complete program, which runs until 6 p.m., go to http://www.ieeeusa.org/calendar/conferences/annualmeeting/2012/program/.
