Abstract:

This report summarizes investigation for international partnerships and technology transfer to with various European Countries. AFRL formerly Wright Laboratory formalized an Education Partnership Agreement in 1997. Additional goals for this summer research were to improve andor enhance the Remedial Action Cost Engineer and Requirements RACER System to support the cost engineering studies for the AFRLMLQC Automation and Robotic Program. The technologies cover a wide variety of interests in the fields of Civil and Environmental Engineering, with particular interest in automation and robotics, construction engineering, and cost engineering and management. In addition, a parallel study included an elementary school curriculum developer to help design technology integration in K-12 curricula in an effort to attract and prepare more U.S. students in engineering and sciences. The work was conducted by means of visits, discussions with technical leaders and managers, and supporting documentation reviews when documents were made available. Visits were conducted during the summer 1998. Organizations contributing to and interested in this effort include the Air Force Research Laboratory, Air Base Technology Branch, Georgia Institute of Technology GA TECH, Georgia Tech Research Corporation, Georgia Tech Foundation, and the National Science Foundation.
