The Planck mission (a NASA/ESA project), launched on May 14, 2009, will measure the Cosmic Microwave Background (CMB) over a broad range of frequencies from 30 to 900 GigaHertz, with a sensitivity in temperature of one millionth of a degree Kelvin – more precise than any previous missions – and to an unprecedented accuracy of 5 arc minutes.
Franciscan St. Margaret Health is renovating part of the family birthing center to include a special care nursery. During renovation, a display will be viewable on site to provide the public with imagery showing what the finished facility will look like.
The application of a virtual blast furnace creates a computer-generated world in which people who are not analysis experts can see the results in a context that they can easily understand. With a virtual blast furnace, design engineers will be able to assess the performance of their designs using CFD simulation results from a first person perspective.
Using a fusion of audio/video footage and computer-generated 3D renders, CIVS was tasked with creating and compiling a 7 minute informational video demonstrating how RDA-funded projects have had a significant impact on their surrounding communities, and also how highly polluted and unusable lands have been restored and nurtured into lush, green habitats and recreational areas. Segments of the video were shot on location at the completed project sites, whereas the projects still under construction were computer generated and modeled using 3D software to visualize the completed result and how it will impact the community.
