to the Digital Signal Processing: Building Information from
Simple Sinusoidal Signals Seminar
Monday the 13th of November 2017
from 6:30pm to 9:00pm, the 7th Savannah Science Seminar
Presentation will be on "Digital Signal Processing: Building
Information from Simple Sinusoidal Signals". Your presenters
Kris Lynch, Dr. Joe Gavin, and Brian Cook and SSS Board Member
and program facilitator Paul
Taylor will be at the host site, Gulfstream
RDC II here in Savannah Georgia.
HOMEWORK: Is REQUIRED. Needs to be completed and emailed to Paul Taylor NLT Sunday Nov 12, 8pm, so that he in turn can upload to servers. Completed/emailed homework by the deadline counts as 5 points; otherwise, no points. Your homework can be found by downloading these 2 files: SSS Writeup 2017 and Make Your Own Music 2017
1. Students must have some sort of photo ID with them (driver's
license, student ID)
2. NO parents or teachers allowed to accompany due to security
3. Promptness - students need to be there NLT 6:20pm for security
guard check-in. The group will walk at 6:30pm to their room destination
accompanied by SSS represenatives. Anyone not there by 6:30 will not
be admitted and it will be counted as an absence.
* Time and Frequency Domain information in sinusoids
* Sampling theory for storing information on computers
* Bandpass filter design for analyzing signals
* Dual-Tone Modulation Frequencies for creating telephone tones
Kristopher Lynch is an Acoustics Engineer at Gulfstream Aerospace
Corporation. In 2002 he was employed at General Dynamics Electric
Boat where he worked on nuclear submarines, doing acoustic testing
and design, and going out to sea on the submarines for acoustic
sea trials. In 2007, Kris was hired at Gulfstream to operate the
newly built Acoustic Test Facility, where he does acoustic testing
in a reverberation room and hemi-anechoic chamber. Kris designs
and tests all types of materials and equipment that go on the aircraft
to ensure that the interior it is quiet. Kris received his B.S.
in Mechanical Engineering from Penn State in 2001, and received
his Masters of Engineering degree in Acoustics from Penn State in
Joe Gavin works in the preliminary design group at Gulfstream, conducting
applied research on enabling technologies for a future supersonic
business jet. This work, performed in collaboration with a team
of passionate experts, seeks to enable supersonic flight over land
without the traditional sonic boom that has led to flight restrictions
for every other supersonic aircraft that's ever been built. Joe's
past career was equally rewarding: measuring, understanding and
sometimes mitigating the acoustic and electromagnetic signatures
for U.S. Navy submarines.
Brian Cook is the lead engineer for the Aero-Acoustics and Community
Noise group at Gulfstream. His focus is on ensuring Gulfstream aircraft
are quiet, and have a minimal noise impact on airport communities.
Prior to joining Gulfstream, Brian worked on applied Aero-Acoustics
R&D at the Georgia Tech Research Institute. In his free time,
Brian enjoys running, CrossFit and playing percussion. Brian wishes
he was more like Joe Gavin.
