2022 Projects

Summer STEM Projects

Flight PASS

  • Sheppard Air Force Base challenged The GRILL to create a simulation for extinguishing air plane fires, specifically with a special fire extinguisher called a Halon Fire Extinguisher.

  • Using Unreal Engine 4, HTC Vive, and 3D printing, the students created a mixed reality simulation for fire extinguisher usage on airplanes.

Laser Eye Protection

  • The Optical Radiation Bioeffects Branch in the 711th HPW challenged the GRILL to make a simulation that allows people to experience the tinted vision that is caused by wearing laser eye protection.

  • Using Unreal Engine 4, HTC Vive Pro, and Tobii eye tracking, the students created a VR simulation which provides realistic laser effects and tint effects that come with wearing laser eye protection

M.E.A.T.S.

  • Ted Harmer with Calamityville challenged the GRILL to make an RPG simulator that interfaces with existing DIS enabled simulations at Calamityville.

  • Using Unreal Engine 4, HTC Vive, Raspberry Pi, and DIS, the students created a mixed reality simulation that allows you to shoot an RPG in conjunction with other simulations at Calamityville.

Teams In Danger

  • Summer Rebensky with Aptima challenged the GRILL to make a realistic multiplayer search and rescue simulation for conducting research on teams and team interactions

  • Using Unreal Engine 4, VaRest, and Mixamo, the students created a collapsed building scenario simulation.

Identify Friend Or Foe

  • The Optical Radiation Bioeffects Branch in the 711th HPW challenged the GRILL to create a simulation that studies reaction time while wearing laser eye protection goggles.

  • Using Unreal Engine 4, CMUSphinx, Oculus Rift, and Logitech Extreme 3D joystick, the students created a flight simulation which you must navigate under the effects of different laser eye protection goggles.
