Celebrating Martin Luther King’s legacy
Doran Mix

Professor Calvin Mackie from Tulane University shared a provocative message during RIT’s Martin Luther King Day celebration Jan. 17. Mackie encouraged the audience to go beyond the annual one-day tribute to King’s memory by living out his principles everyday. The event was sponsored by RIT’s Commission for Promoting Pluralism.

CIMS team helps improve military LAVs
Doran Mix

CIMS co-op students, clockwise from top, James Bagg, Matthew Chabot and Jonathon Pickard work on a Marine Corps Light Armored Vehicle in preparation for its use in CIMS’ research program. The Light Armored Vehicle Air Defense, or LAV-AD, variant was recently delivered to CIMS for use in its effort to develop technology that supports improved readiness and maintainability of current military vehicles. A network of sensors will be integrated into the LAV-AD to monitor key equipment, allowing for real-time diagnostic and prognostic health assessment. This type of system has been shown to reduce logistics costs by making re-supply, maintenance and repair efforts more effective while also enhancing the safety of military personnel in the field. CIMS will be installing a more capable and rugged second-generation version of the system it developed previously that won the 2004 NCAT Defense Manufacturing Excellence Award.

The scene is among nearly 60 photos included in Images from Science, an exhibition of scientific photography created by Professors Michael Peres and Andrew Davidhazy in the School of Photographic Arts and Sciences. The exhibit is back in Rochester after a three-year odyssey throughout the United States and overseas, including stops in Ireland, the Netherlands, Spain and Sweden. Images from Science opens at The Gallery at One Bausch & Lomb Place on Jan. 30, and continues through April.
