Dr. Jennie Hwang Appointed to Chair the Board on Assessment of U.S. Army Centers

Reading time ( words)

Dr. Jennie S. Hwang is appointed the Chairman of the Board on Assessment of U.S. Army Centers, U.S. Department of Defense. The primary focus of the Board is to assess the operational efficiency including planning, facilities, equipment, human resources and the merits of the technological programs in near-, medium- and far-term of research, development and engineering centers headquartered across the country.

The Centers include Communications-Electronics Center (for Control, Communications, Computers, Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance capabilities, technologies and integrated solutions, covering Night Vision and Electronics Sensors), Aviation and Missile Center (for supporting aviation and missile platforms), Chemical and Biological Center (for non-medical chem-bio defense), Tank Automotive Center(for developing, integrating and sustaining the right technology solutions for all manned and unmanned Department of Defense ground systems and combat support systems to improve Current Force effectiveness and provide superior capabilities for the Future Force), Natick Soldier Center (for advancing innovative technologies), Armament Center (for developing more advanced weapons using technologies such as microwaves, lasers and nanotechnology), and Space and Missiles Defense Command (for conducting space and missile defense operations). The Board is also charged to assess the degree to which programs achieve the stated objectives and desired impact.

Concurrently, Dr. Hwang continues to serve as the Chairman of the Board on Assessment of U.S. Army Research Laboratory (ARL), Department of Defense. The overall goal is to help achieve ARL’s mission to fulfill an overarching technical strategy envisioned to support Strategic Land Power Dominance for the U.S. Army of 2035 and beyond, which will operate in a rapidly changing environment, hitherto unparalleled in complexity.

As future land power dominance will heavily rely on significant science and technology (S&T) advances, Centers and ARL arepositioned to timely introduce the new and advanced technology to assist the operations of the nation’s primary land force and the Joint Force to establish a global landpower network, shape security environment and prevent conflict, preserving the peace and security of the nation.

What’s Driving AOI Innovation and Collaboration?

03/25/2020 | Brent Fischthal, Koh Young America
When we look at the optical inspection market growth trajectory, we can see how process challenges helped create innovations. For example, solder paste inspection (SPI) has undergone a shift from 2D to 3D because the 2D inspection technologies manufacturers traditionally used to collect solder deposit images could not solve shadowing problems. Thus, companies developed 3D SPI to capture the printed solder paste height to accurately measure the total volume of paste printed. Several years later, we see the same need for surface-mounted component inspection with AOI systems.
