It's been a busy fall for TIDES! We attended RAND Corporation's 3rd Annual African First Ladies initiative,
hosted two TIDES technology demonstrations, and we participated in the 2nd Pentagon Energy Security Event (PESE). In addition to this, TIDES also launched a new website.
Please check out the new site and let us know what you think!
|2011 STAR-TIDES Demo|
Last month, TIDES hosted its 5th annual fall field demonstration at Fort Lesley J. McNair (4-7 Oct) and at the Pentagon (11-13 Oct). Both demos were a huge success! For the Fort McNair demo, nearly 700 visitors registered to attend the week long event and we had over 40 exhibitors. This year we had a lot of shelter solutions on display, ranging from long-term energy efficient housing to short-term solutions such as weatherized tents. Some of the highlights from the demo included a video teleconference with environmentalist John Francis
, from the University of Wisconsin and a 3D printing display by researchers from Virginia Tech University
. We also exhibited at the 2nd Annual Pentagon Energy Security Event which promotes current and emerging energy security initiatives DoD-wide.
Be sure to mark your calendars for the 6th annual STAR-TIDES fall field demo which will take place October 2-5 2012 at Fort Lesley J. McNair.
