This list has been retained 24/09/2015 no one can subscribe to this list and no one can post to this list– contact for all enquiries regarding this list This is the list to facilitate communication and collaboration between the members of the EPSRC (Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council ) Airport Energy Technologies Network (AETN).

This email list aims to provide a network for researchers who are utilizing drones to conduct data collection, design research projects. Discussions focus on sharing experiences, project information, new technological breakthroughs, and news that may have an impact on using drone in civilian contexts. It emerges from the Nesta funded project 'Project Daedalus', which explores the creative potential of drones #projectdaedalus Set up by Professor Andy Miah, University of Salford @andymiah New members who are on Twitter will be added to the following list.

This is a Special Interest Group (SIG) for anyone interested in Object-Process Methodology (OPM) which is a compact conceptual approach, language, and methodology for modelling and knowledge representation of automation systems. The application of OPM ranges from simple assemblies of elemental components to complex, multidisciplinary, dynamic systems. OPM has been adopted by the International Organization for Standardization, ISO, and on December 7, 2015 it was published as a normative ISO 19450 document at Over the past two decades, Prof. Dov Dori of the Faculty of Industrial Engineering and Management at the Technion has been developing Object-Process Methodology (OPM) as a language and method for conceptual modeling of complex systems of any kind, be it artificial or natural. An OPM model expresses both graphically and textually the architecture of the system: Interconnected diagrams at varying levels of detail, from a bird's eye view to any desired number of "nuts and bolts" views, specify any conceptual and logical aspect of the system. Each graphic expression is translated on the fly to a corresponding textual specification in a plain subset of English. A basic premise underlying OPM is that one can build a model of any system in any domain and at any level of complexity with the most minimal set of building blocks: stateful objects (objects with states) and processes that create or consume objects, or change their states. Over the last decade, Technion students at the Enterprise Systems Modeling Laboratory developed OPCAT (Object-Process CASE Tool), a software package that is available freely from the Lab's website and translates the user's graphic input into simple English in real time. This enables quick model development jointly by the customer and the system architects and engineers, and reliable verification of the model as it is being created. The SIG is managed by Dr Pathmeswaran Raju of Knowledge Based Engineering Lab in Birmingham City University, UK.

SUN aims to provide resources and events to support university lecturers of space engineering and technology in the UK.

The UK is an affiliated member of the NASA Solar System Exploration Research Virtual Institute (SSERVI). The UK-node is comprised of 75 members, representing 15 Universities and other research-active organisations. Our main aims are to: 1) facilitate space mission involvements for the UK community. 2) help train the next generation of lunar scientists in the UK.

The list is used to promote research collaboration between UK and US space weather experts. Space weather is recognised as a significant natural hazard by both countries, e.g. in terms of the threat to power grids. Thus the two governments have been encouraging their experts to collaborate. This list provides a formal way to exchange information between all experts involved in the collaboration.
