UCSD Jacobs School of Engineering

The Jacobs School of Engineering at UCSD is the largest engineering school in the University of California system. While the Scripps Institution of Oceanography was the original portal to the defense industry, the Jacobs School now has that role.

Student teams in the Jacobs School conduct research and develop products for local businesses including the arms industry. The projects are conceptualized and funded by the defense contractors who benefit from the research. Notable projects include:

  • Raytheon System: Portable KVM (Keyboard, Video, Mouse) for maintenance of "headless" processing element in USMC aviation command and control system

  • General Atomics: Trade Study and Conceptual design of a Railgun Energy Storage System for an All-electric Warship

  • SPAWAR: Dolphin Backpack Physiological Monitor

  • SPAWAR: Ocean Bottom Attachments/Self Burying Sensors

  • West Point: Analog-to-Digital Conversion Based on a Biologically: Motivated Error Diffusion Neural Network
