Cincinnati, Ohio – The Aeris, LLC team had a strong showing at the 2019 Chemical and Biological Defense Science & Technology Conference, presenting during the Supporting the Warfighter at the Tactical Edge Session and the Poster Session.
During the Poster Sessions, the Aeris, LLC team presented an Evaluation of the Joint Outdoor-Indoor Urban Large Eddy Simulation (JOULES) system, performed and authored by Dr. Andrew Annunzio, Mr. George Bieberbach, Dr. Paul Bieringer, and Dr. Aaron Piña of Aeris, LLC and Dr. David Lorenzetti and Dr. Michael Sohn of Lawrence Berkley National Laboratory. JOULES couples a building-aware LES atmospheric model with an integrated outdoor atmospheric transport and dispersion (AT&D) model. This new tool demonstrates promise to improve the prediction of human exposure to airborne contaminants in urban environments, by resolving both urban AT&D, and exchanges between indoors and outdoors.
Dr. Paul Bieringer presented Aeris’ work on High-Fidelity, Urban Chemical and Biological Atmospheric Transport and Dispersion Modeling for Android-Based End Users during the Supporting the Warfighter at the Tactical Edge Session. Dr. Bieringer discussed the nascent stages of the collaboration between Applied Research Associates (ARA) and Aeris in building an ATAK plugin that leverages the GPU LES, allowing for rapid and realistic CBRN simulations and predictions within urban settings. He presented the efforts thus far to develop a prototype application, and the research plan to harden this application for operational settings.
