【主講人簡介】

  WALTER D.DOWNING,職業工程師,IEEE 終身高級成員,AESS主席(2020-21)。AESS其他職位:候選主席(2018-19);技術運營副主席(2015-17);理事會成員(2001-6和2012-17);德克薩斯州中部分部SMC-AES聯合分會主席(2015-18);AUTOTESTCON董事會代表(1995-9、2001-7和2014-19);AUTOTESTCON總主席(1999);AUTOTESTCON技術項目主席(1986、1990和1993年);AESS系統委員會代表和技術運營副主席(2017-18年);導師(2017年至今);榮譽講師(2017年至今)。他還是孤星部門(Lone Star Section)的副主席和SMC-AES聯合分會的秘書。
  DOWNING是德克薩斯州圣安東尼奧市西南研究所(SwRI)的執行副主席兼首席運營官。西南研究所是一個獨立的非盈利性組織,從事物理科學的合同研究和開發創新技術以改善人類。DOWNING于1979年加入西南研究所,最初是從事航空航天系統自動化測試領域的工程師。他擴大了這一技術項目領域,并于1981年成立了他所管理的航空電子和支持系統部門。認識到必須管理資產延長壽命的客戶的獨特要求,DOWNING開始專注于通過技術插入解決現有技術的可靠性,可維護性和支撐性問題。他的部門在1988年發展成為分部,并在1994年成為一個分區,同年他被任命為航空電子和培訓系統副主席。1998年,DOWNING被任命為執行副主席,并成為西南研究所董事會成員,之后進入了執行管理層。2016年,DOWNING被授予首席運營官的頭銜。
  DOWNING是學術卓越和社區服務的倡導者。他在德克薩斯大學圣安東尼奧分校工程學院和商學院的行業咨詢委員會任職,也是圣瑪麗大學董事會成員。他作為IEEE ABET(美國工學技術教育認證會)電氣工程項目評審員支持STEM(科學、技術、工程和數學)教育。他是IEEE-HKN的Gamma-Omicron分會的成員,也是Kappa Upsilon(UTSA)分會的行業顧問。
  DOWNING畢業于南衛理公會大學(Southern Methodist University),獲得學士學位,之后在德克薩斯大學圣安東尼奧分校(University of Texas at San Antonio)獲得工商管理碩士學位。他擁有德克薩斯大學奧斯汀分校(University of Texas at Austin)和麻省理工學院斯隆管理學院(MIT Sloan School of management)頒發的管理和領導力高管證書。他是德克薩斯州和佛羅里達州的注冊職業工程師。

 

WALTER D. DOWNING, P.E., IEEE Life Senior Member, AESS President (2020-21); President-Elect (2018-19); VP Technical Operations (2015-17); Board of Governors member (2001-6 & 2012-17); Central Texas Section Joint SMC-AES Chapter Chair (2015-18); AUTOTESTCON Board Rep (1995-9, 2001-7 & 2014-19); AUTOTESTCON General Chair (1999); AUTOTESTCON Technical Program Chair (1986, 1990 & 1993); AESS Systems Council Representative and VP Technical Operations (2017-18); Mentor (2017-present); Distinguished Lecturer (2017-present).  He is also Vice Chair of the Lone Star Section and Secretary of the Joint SMC-AES Chapter.

Walt Downing is the Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer of Southwest Research Institute (SwRI?) in San Antonio, Texas. SwRI is an independent, not-for-profit organization conducting contract research in the physical sciences and developing innovative technologies for the betterment of humankind. Walt joined SwRI in 1979 as an engineer initially working in the field of automated testing of aerospace systems. 

 

Recognizing the unique requirements of customers who must manage assets for extended lifetimes, Walt began to focus on solving reliability, maintainability, and supportability problems in existing aerospace systems through technology insertion.  His section grew into a department in 1988 and a division in 1994 when he was appointed Vice President of Aerospace Electronics and Training Systems.  Walt moved into executive management in 1998 when he was appointed Executive Vice President and became a member of the SwRI Board of Directors.  In 2016 Walt was recognized with the additional title of Chief Operating Officer.

Walt is an advocate of academic excellence and community service.  He serves on the industry advisory boards for the College of Engineering and the College of Business at the University of Texas at San Antonio and was a member of the Board of Trustees of St. Mary’s University.  He supports STEM education by serving as an IEEE ABET electrical engineering program evaluator.  He is a member of the Gamma Omicron chapter of IEEE-HKN and is an industry advisor to the Kappa Upsilon (UTSA) chapter.

 

Walt graduated from Southern Methodist University with a BSEE and the University of Texas at San Antonio with an MBA.  He has executive certificates in management and leadership from the University of Texas at Austin and MIT Sloan School of Management.  He is a registered professional engineer in the states of Texas and Florida.
 

【講座信息】

  研究太陽粒子的立方星任務是由美國國家航空航天局(NASA)科學任務理事會和太陽物理部門資助的6U行星際立方星科學任務。研究太陽粒子的立方星任務 (CubeSat mission to study Solar Particles, CuSP)作為航天發射系統:探索任務一(Space Launch System Exploratory Mission-1:SLS EM-1)飛行的第二個有效載荷,計劃在2020年年中發射。CuSP是空間氣候研究的開拓者,因為它將是第一個被放置在地球磁層影響之外的日心軌道上的太陽物理學科學任務。CuSP具有三個互補的微型傳感器,用于實現兩個科學目標:研究太陽和行星際粒子在近地軌道上的來源和加速機制,并通過確定太陽高能粒子(Solar Energetic Particles, SEP)事件期間的質子輻射水平和識別有助于預測產生地磁風暴的強日冕物質噴射 (Coronal Mass Ejection, CME)驅動行星際沖擊波到達的超熱 (Suprathermal, ST)離子特性來支持空間氣候研究。

 

The CubeSat Mission for studying Solar Particles is a NASA Science Mission Directorate and Heliophysics Division funded 6U Interplanetary CubeSat Science Mission. CuSP is scheduled to launch in mid-2020 as a secondary payload on the SLS EM -1 (Exploratory Mission One) flight. CuSP is a pathfinder mission for Space Weather Research as it will be the first heliophysics science mission to be placed in heliocentric orbit outside the influence of the Earth's magnetosphere. CuSP features three complementary, miniaturized sensors to address two science objectives: study the sources and acceleration mechanisms of solar and IP particles in near-Earth orbit, and support space weather research by determining proton radiation levels during SEP events and identifying properties of ST ions that could help predict the arrival of strong CME-driven IP shock waves that produce geomagnetic storms.
