Twelve students won awards for their papers, and seven were from UMD.

Skylar Trythall: second place in the undergraduate division for his paper, “Laser Ablation Plume Impingement onto Spacecraft Materials.” Professor Ray Sedwick is Trythall’s faculty advisor.

William V. Whitmore: third place in the undergraduate division for his paper, “Tracking of Neutrally Buoyant Helium Bubbles in Low- Speed Flow with Motion Capture Cameras.” Professor Jewel Barlow is Whitmore’s faculty advisor.

Saimouli Katragadda and Benedict A. Mondal: first place in the undergraduate team division for their paper, “Stereoscopic Mixed Reality in Unmanned Aerial Vehicle Search and Rescue.” Dr. Anil Deane is the faculty advisor.

AIAA sponsors student conferences in each AIAA Region for student members at both the undergraduate and graduate levels. The conference is open to anyone interested in aerospace related fields. Students from regional schools are invited to submit papers and give formal presentations that are judged for technical content and communication skills. Monetary prizes are awarded to the top three winners in each category.
