Science and Engineering Seminar Series at Las Positas College: March 13


Brian Wihl, associate program leader for autonomous sensors within the defense systems and infrastructure protection area at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL), will present “Ground Penetrating Radar for Explosive Hazard Detection on Wednesday, March 13, from 6–7:15 p.m. at Las Positas College.

The presentation is provided in partnership with LLNL and Las Positas College as part of the 14th Annual Science and Engineering Seminar Series, titled “Theory to Practice: How Science Gets Done. The seminar series is designed to enhance the partnership between both Livermore institutions while providing a forum for Laboratory scientists and engineers to share groundbreaking research with the college's scientific community of students, staff and faculty.

In his current role, Wihl coordinates technical development and provides strategic leadership to manage execution of a complex set of projects in sensor and algorithm development, unmanned system integration and collaborative autonomy relevant to the Department of Energy, Department of Defense and other federal partner missions. He joined the Laboratory in 2012 and gained a breadth of experience developing embedded systems, electrical hardware and software for applications involving radiation detection, bio detection, radar, acoustics and hyperspectral imaging.

The seminar is open to the general public and will be presented in Bldg. 2400, room 2420 at 3000 Campus Hill Drive, Livermore.
