Operation Silver Streak
BU HEM students participated in Operation Silver Streak on April 18, 2013. BU HEM Student Kevin O’Neill was Operations Section Chief for the real time incident based on the 2012 Red Bull Stratos “Jump from Space”. The students were organized into units including, Research, Capsule Status, Weather, Aviation Tracking and Medical Services. The students watched in real time the jump from launch through landing planning for different contingencies including monitoring real time flight data in the area using flightaware.com and providing real time weather for the landing area. Good job by all students who participated.
