September, 2018 Propeller
A PRINCETON PROPELLER EVENT
AT QUADRANGLE CLUB
NAVIGATORS & THE CURIOUS
Please Join Us for Cocktails & Hors d’oeuvres
33 PROSPECT AVENUE – PRINCETON, NJ
6 P, TUESDAY, September 11th, 2018
Speaker: Rich Hollingsworth ’71
Director of Operations, High Asset Tagging, Tego, Inc.
“Radio-Frequency ID in Aerospace, Life Sciences & Beyond:
Collecting, Storing, Managing and Using Intelligent Asset Data”
Managing high value assets, by simple Internet of Things (IoT) connection to “Big Data,” leads to
inefficiencies in handling large volumes of disparate data over long periods (e.g., decades). Asset
identification by reading barcode or RFID EPC and sending to “Big Data” to retrieve asset data is
likewise limiting, where Internet protocols don’t make sense due to cost, latency, or environmental
conditions. But “intelligent assets” use RFID tags with asset data permanently stored on the asset and
read by a simple RFID reader --- eliminating the need for “Big Data.” After describing how Tego delivers
its high memory RFID technology core “intelligent assets” in the aerospace and life science industries,
Rich Hollingsworth will delineate the semiconductor and software development challenges yet to be
met, before “intelligent assets” can be extended to many other industries.

WHEREVER YOU ARE
7 P, EASTERN TIME (USA) -- TUESDAY, June 9th, 2020
Speaker: David Herman, MD
Chair, Infection Control, Penn Medicine Princeton Health
“An Up-to-Date Briefing on COVID-19 Infection:
And Dealing with this Pandemic at the Local Level”
Over the past few months, many of us have expanded our virology and infectious disease awareness.
Likewise, epidemiologists, researchers and front-line health care workers have garnered an enhanced
respect from a grateful public. So, it is with special pleasure that the Propellers welcome Infectious
Disease specialist David Herman for a global perspective on our historic pandemic. In particular, he will
discuss how epidemiologists determine the contagiousness of infectious diseases, then delve into the
different types of laboratory testing for SARS-CoV-2, and their attendant implications for controlling
infection spread. He will then delineate changes Penn Medicine Princeton Medical Center has implemented
in response to COVID-19. You may find his facts bracing, but the power of human resilience will also be on
offer. Please note: Zoom Propellers now reach a national (and global) audience, so it’s important to
register: the first 300 people who sign up by June 7th will receive the “Join Meeting Link” on June 8th.
To Receive ZOOM LINK: Registration Required by June 7th via propellers.princetonaaa.org
