  • UCF Contributes to Hurricane Hunting, Better Predictions

    An instrument the size of kitchen oven aboard a state-of-the-art NASA unmanned aircraft is making the job of hurricane prediction a little easier. University of Central Florida electrical engineering professor W. Linwood Jones had a major role in the development of a microwave remote sensor, which can image the ocean-surface wind speed and rainfall patterns […]

  • Three Blades to the Wind

    If you’ve ever driven through Texas, California or Iowa, you’ve probably passed a field of steel towers that look like giant fans. These wind turbines, situated on wind farms, capture the natural wind in our atmosphere and convert it into mechanical energy, then electricity. “What a lot of people call a fan is the rotor […]
