A Bit About Me!
Hello and thank you for viewing my portfolio! My name is Noah Ossanna and I am a 4th year Mechanical Engineering/Mechatronics BSMS at Northeastern University. Ever since I was young, I have loved hands-on projects and seeing ideas become real. In college, I discovered my passion for robotics and founded a cluster of student-lead projects to research applications of deployable UAV swarms. For the past 3 years, I have lead design reviews, manufactured prototypes, facilitated tests, and organized subgroups as both an administrator and technical project lead. At the same time, my club and personal project work blends as I am pursuing side projects including autonomous ground vehicles and fixed wing aircraft.
In addition to interests in automation and aerospace industries, I thoroughly enjoy the interdisciplinary nature of robotics fields, both amateur and professional. From mechanical design to prototyping and control, the challenges that I face make successful tests all the more satisfying. I am actively designing mechatronic payloads and autonomous vehicles with the intention of broadening my design, prototyping, fabrication, and software development capabilities.
My Work Projects
As a UAV technician and test pilot, I supported flight operations of aerial vehicles during DARPA’s Squad X tests at the Marine Corps Air Ground Combat Center in Twentynine Palms, CA. Working with SSCI and engineers from Lockheed Martin, I serviced aerial vehicles and conducted operations during combined systems tests. Click the link below for more information!
