Research: Expanding the boundaries of science and technology

Few colleges can match the depth and breadth of Purdue Engineering’s research capabilities and talent. We are focused on 21st century impact — leading the way in reshaping the research universe through discovery and innovation.

Shedding light on dark mode to save energy

Increasing energy conservation to mitigate the effects of climate change is a grand strategy with lofty goals that depends on continuous improvements to the energy efficiency of every powered device and activity. In Medium, ECE's Y. Charlie Hu discusses his new tool to measure battery saving.

AAE's Howell on USAF-funded team to track objects in space

Hsu Lo Distinguished Professor of Aeronautics and Astronautics Kathleen Howell is on a team that will be tackling what is known as space domain awareness (SDA) as part of a $5-million grant from the Air Force Research Laboratory through its newly established Space University Research Initiatives (SURI) program.

Space is getting to be a busy place, and it’s vital to track the increasing numbers of objects up there as nations and commercial entities launch more and more satellites into orbit. Kathleen Howell is a prominent expert in orbit mechanics, trajectory optimization and spacecraft dynamics and control, and she’s been tapped to put that expertise to use for the Air Force.

Howell, the Hsu Lo Distinguished Professor of Aeronautics and Astronautics in the Purdue School of Aeronautics and Astronautics, is on a team that will be tackling what is known as space domain awareness (SDA) — part of a $5-million grant over five years from the Air Force Research Laboratory’s (AFRL) Office of Scientific Research, through its newly established Space University Research Initiatives (SURI) program. The program is tasked with translating academic research into new military technologies for the U.S. Air Force and U.S. Space Force (USSF).
