Previous Capstone Projects

Pacific States Cast Iron Pipe CO. (PSCIPCO) sponsored our Capstone Project which en- abled us to improve the quality of their duc- tile cast iron pipes by creating an Inspec- tion process for detecting cracks in pipes. The problem is that many cracks go unno- ticed and are sent to the customer and...
Innovative Scientific Solutions Incorpo- rated (ISSI) works closely with the Air Force Research Laboratory to research new propulsion systems for Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS). Many smaller UASs use engines that design for model air- plane hobbyists and hence are not opti- mized for the military's...
BYU Capstone Group 18 has teamed together with L-3 Fuzing and Ordnance Systems to complete a senior design project. The project objective is to ex- plore the feasibility of using commer- cially available off-the-shelf (COTS) parts in the development of a rocket that acquires a laser- illuminated...
US Synthetic has formed the Asante Foundation to provide low cost housing developments that includes the entire ne- cessary infrastructure for the people in Kenya. One of their goals is to develop a business model that others can mimic. The Asante Foundation has tasked Mato- fali Designs with wall...
Personal Vehicle for Singapore Commuters BYU Capstone Working on a global design team with teams from the National University of Sin- gapore and Pennsylvania State University, BYU designed a portable transportation device for use of commuters in Singapore. In this congested city pace for commuters...
Rio Tinto partnering with Brigham Young University tasked a team of students to design a probe for measuring the level of the Flash Smelting Furnace at Kennecott Utah Copper (KUC), one of the largest copper mines in the world. Currently, a worker wears inconvenient heat resistant gear, accesses the...
In order to allow Brady Mining to test their roof bolting drill bits with water, we created a system exclusively for Brady Mining’s test facility that will: Deliver water to the drill bit Filter sediment out of the wastewater Recycle the wastewater as a closed system Keep all electrical...
Tanzania is one of many countries in the world that suffers from extreme poverty. Much of the poverty and hardships in third world countries can be attributed to the lack of clean water. Because of the lack of drilled water wells, most of the people in these nations are forced to drink contaminated...
Increased data transmission speeds for L-3 Communication’s radio frequency signals require more accurate antenna positioning to reduce data loss. The time saved by preventing the re-transmission of data could be used instead to send and receive more data, thus improving data throughput. To do so, L...
Varian Medical Systems’ X-ray Products, headquartered in Salt Lake City, is an independent supplier of X-ray tubes for X-ray imaging. More than 400 different types of medical and industrial X-ray tubes are offered by Varian. Each type of X-ray tube requires testing that will ensure the desired...
