Research on Light Emission From Black Phosphorus Hints at New Applications

Energy-efficient LEDs (light-emitting diodes) have begun to replace many types of lighting both indoor and outdoor. A key reason for the rise of LEDs has been materials research that greatly improved the quality and intensity of light achievable with these devices. But those materials must be handled with very high levels of precision, including surfaces…


Notable Technical Inquiry

High-Temperature Hypersonics Testing Capabilities

The Defense Systems Information Analysis Center (DSIAC) was asked to identify what high-temperature test facilities exist for testing hypersonics capabilities. A list of facilities was compiled in tandem with examples of high-temperature testing and research being done across government, academia, and industry. Research varied from testing materials to mechanical testing and thermal protection systems. Facilities and organizations performing high-temperature mechanical testing for fracture toughness, hardness,…

David Boyd

VP/CTO - Security and Mission Solutions at Parsons Corporation

I am currently working on the development of national and international standards related to AI and specifically the importance of data and data governance in providing ethical and safe AI/ML systems as the convenor of ISO/IEC JTC1 SC 42 AI – WG 2 Data. Currently I am focused on the challenges of LLMs and other generative AI models in the areas of bias, transparency, privacy, and accuracy. In addition, I head up a number of initiatives within Parsons related to CUAS and infrastructure protection.
