2019 Coming to an End

2019 was another great year for LSE.  LSE is a subcontractor to RED, Inc for NAVAIR, and to STC for ONR.  The MAC-E OMI work continued full pace, expanding to include mission planning software as well as the operational software.  The Accelerated Command and Control (AC2) project completed its first phase.  LSE activities also supported development and capture of an award for Problem Solutions, Inc (a SBIR project called Rapid Mobile Authoring Toolkit, or RMAT), and an award for STC (Rules of Engagement, Commander's Intent, and Transfer of Authority Language, or RECITAL). New opportunities emerged with Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University (VPI&SU) related to advanced audio technology, and several new opportunities with Problem Solutions. 

I was named Fellow by IARIA in 2019.

During 2019 I also continued to publish at national and international conferences.   In July, I attended the Human Social Analytics (HUSO) conference and presented a paper:

Folds, D.J. (2019, July).  "Data for Healthy Decisions: Computation for Passive Monitoring of        Medium-Risk Individuals at Home”. HUSO, Rome, Italy.

I also participated in a panel: 
Folds, D.J. (2019, July.) Challenges of Cooperation in the Mobility Era (panelist). HUSO, Rome, Italy.

In September I attended the INCOSE Human Systems Integration conference and helped organize and present a panel: 

Folds, D.J. (2019, September.) HSI Implications of Adaptive Human-Machine Teaming (Panel co-organizer and panelist). INCOSE HSI, Biarritz, FR.

The in October I attended the IEEE International Symposium on Systems Engineering (ISSE) in Edinburgh followed by the IEEE Systems, Man, and Cybernetics (SMC) conference the following week in Bari, Italy.  Tom McDermott and I co-authored papers for both conferences:

McDermott, T.A., and Folds, D.J. (2019, October). “The Digital (Mission) Twin: an Integrating Concept for Future Adaptive Cyber-Physical-Human Systems”. IEEE SMC, Bari, Italy.

McDermott, T.A., and Folds, D.J. (2019, October). “Creating Well-Rounded and Whole-Brain Engineers”.  IEEE ISSE, Edinburgh, Scotland.

I made two presentations at the DoD HFE TAG in 2019:

Folds, D.J. “Intuitive Sonar Displays.” Dod HFE TAG, Aberdeen Proving Grounds, MD, April 2019.

Folds, D.J., and Patrick, R. “Auditory Information Design for VR and MXR Systems.” DoD HFE TAG, Aberdeen Proving Grounds, MD, April 2019.

And I made a presentation at VPI&SU as part of an Immersive Audio workshop in September:
Folds, D.J. (2019, September.)  Engineering an Informative Auditory Ambience.  Invited Keynote, Special Workshop on Immersive Audio, Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University, Blacksburg, VA.

In short, my productivity in scholarly presentations was pretty good for 2019!
