The ABLE ETS Gimbal is part of a pointing and image tracking system. Last summer, Wessel converted the gimbal's pointing controller Simulink code into C++ code. ABLE-ETS is a Joint Technology Office funded test bed for maturing directed energy and high-energy laser technologies, including tracking, sensors, and lasers. 

Wessel is interning at Dahlgren through the STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) Student Employment Program (SSEP). The program provides direct hire authority for undergraduate and graduate degree seeking students enrolled in STEM majors. The program was established to provide interns with exposure to public service, enhance educational experience, and possibly provide financial aid to support educational goals. Additionally, this program will provide a streamlined and accelerated hiring process to compete successfully with private industry for high-quality scientific, technical, engineering, or mathematics students for filling scientific and engineering positions.
