Caltech Secure Wi-Fi Project Update

The IMSS Wi-Fi project team is on track to upgrade over 70 buildings and 2 million square feet by summer 2019. With 1,200 additional access points installed so far, more than 6200 devices are connecting to our wireless networks weekly. Apple devices account for 65% of clients connected, and a normal day sees close to 5TB of data delivered. We are currently working in Broad and Beckman Institute.

As we transition buildings from Beavernet to Caltech Secure, our team works with the building manager to make sure the changes are communicated to occupants and provides onsite assistance for those who need help connecting their devices.

One big change is that we now require people using Caltech Visitor to provide their mobile number before they can connect to the wireless network. Individuals enter their U.S. mobile number with the leading digit “1” and then receive a text message with a code they can use to connect. Additional instructions for connecting to the wireless networks can be found here.

We are currently working in Broad and Beckman Institute, and will announce the next buildings once funding for FY2020 has been finalized. For project map and updates on the project schedule, please visit http://imss.caltech.edu/wireless-building-schedule.

To connect to the Secure network in areas where it is already active, select Secure and use your Access password. For more information, visit the Caltech Secure and Caltech Visitor information pages.

For help or more information about the project, contact the Help Desk at extension 3500, email help@caltech.edu, or visit Caltech Help at help.caltech.edu.

Campus Security

From: Jim Cowell, Associate Vice President for Facilities
Date: April 8, 2019
Re: Campus Security

Caltech has made important changes to campus security and we want to be sure you are aware of the changes and the different ways you may recognize our security officers during this transition period.

Recently, Caltech enhanced campus security with the addition of Allied Universal, which services more than 500 campus locations nationwide. Caltech Security's leadership has remained in-house. Within the next few weeks, officers will transition to Caltech branded uniforms. In the meantime, some security staff will be wearing Allied Universal uniforms, which consist of a blue polo-type shirt and black pants. If you are concerned about whether officers are Caltech Security personnel, please call x4701 to inquire. Allied-branded cars will be used until they are replaced with Caltech security vehicles.

Emergency contact numbers (x5000 and 626-395-5000) and safety procedures will remain as they currently are. Patrols are ongoing 24/7 and Security can continue to be contacted at x4701 for lockouts and escorts.

For more information on Caltech's commitment to providing a safe and secure environment for our students, faculty, staff, and visitors, visit the Caltech Security website or call x4701.

Caltech Teams with Northrop Grumman to Deliver Airworthiness Certificate Program

Northrop Grumman Corporation has engaged Caltech to deliver an innovative six-day program in Airworthiness Fundamentals, designed to help build capabilities for the company's aerospace engineers.

Today's aircraft—civil, military, manned, and unmanned—are increasingly complex and evolving more rapidly than ever before. As innovation in connected platforms, unmanned aircraft systems, and autonomy accelerates, there is a corresponding elevation in risk that requires thoughtful design for high-quality aircraft trusted to complete their missions and return safely.

"Caltech has developed an airworthiness fundamentals professional program that is timely and tailored to bring the right big-picture perspectives to seasoned engineers as well as professionals early in their career." said Doug Davis, Director of the Office of Independent Airworthiness for Northrop Grumman's Aerospace Systems sector. "This six-day program can be offered where and when we need it, and it is flexible enough to allow for both US civil and military needs, while also being adaptable for Europe and other international regulatory environments. Northrop Grumman is committed to providing multiple educational opportunities for our employees to help them obtain the airworthiness skills necessary for our company to be the most trusted provider of systems and technologies, with the goal of supporting global security."

"This new program extends our decades-long relationship with Northrop Grumman. We've educated nearly 4,000 Northrop Grumman participants in our professional programs," said Dr. Rick Hefner, program director for Caltech's Center for Technology and Management Education (CTME). "Airworthiness is scalable to other aerospace markets and products. It’s modular enough to couple with other certificate programs in our portfolio, including systems engineering, cybersecurity, agile hardware, predictive analytics, product development, operations/supply chain, innovation, and leadership." Northrop Grumman management nominates high-performing engineering professionals to join seasonal cohorts in attending the Caltech program, which can be delivered at the company's locations throughout the US.

The new Certificate in Airworthiness Engineering is conferred by CTME, the professional education arm of the Institute, which customizes learning programs to meet the challenges of technology-driven companies.

CTME is embedded in Caltech's Engineering and Applied Science Division, which includes seven departments: the Graduate Aerospace Laboratory (GALCIT), Applied Physics and Materials Science, Computing and Mathematical Sciences, Electrical Engineering, Environmental Science and Engineering, Mechanical and Civil Engineering, and the Andrew and Peggy Cherng Department of Medical Engineering.
