February Lunchon Details

Our February luncheon will be hosted and presented by our Young Members. Our YM presenters will be two AFIT graduate students in engineering management working on some cutting edge water purification and 3D printing solutions they hope will have lasting impacts in engineering operations. Capt Drew Gallucci will be presenting on “UV LED in portable Teflon device with water purification” which is a unique water purification option for deployed personnel in austere environments. Capt Brad Shields will be presenting on “Additive Manufacturing Application for Civil Engineering Tools and Jigs,” which explores the possibility of just-in-time 3D printing needed Air Force Civil Engineering items in a deployed environment. Come learn more about the details of some of the latest research in military engineering technology, going on right here in our own backyard!  Please register for the SAME Kittyhawk February Luncheon at this link:  https://www.eventbrite.com/e/february-luncheon-2016-tickets-21041435500?ref=elink

Capt Brad Shields:

Brad Shields

Capt. Brad Shields attended North Carolina State University and majored in Civil Engineering with a concentration in structural engineering. Since graduating from NC State in 2011, he has held the position of operations engineering chief, executive officer, and programming development officer for the F-35 infrastructure program while stationed at Luke AFB in Phoenix, AZ. Upon arriving at AFIT in 2014, Capt. Shields held the position of AFIT Student Association President, while also completing an MBA from American Military University. Capt. Shields will be presenting on “Additive  Manufacturing Application for Civil Engineering Tools and Jigs,” which explores the possibility of just-in-time 3D printing needed Air Force Civil Engineering items in a deployed environment.

Capt Drew Gallucci:
