Space case

Otto Schnarr, CSci’09 , Math’10 (right), is a principal investigator for NASA’s Advanced Data Acquisition and Telemetry System in the Armstrong Flight Research Center at Edwards Air Force Base in California. His work was recently highlighted in a feature story. Schnarr is helping develop a communication system that could be used to assist aircraft with super-fast data transmission while using half the bandwidth of traditional methods. The new system can move 40 megabits per second, which is the equivalent of streaming eight high-definition movies from an online service each second, says Schnarr.
