Brandon Brown

Brandon C. Brown

The Prometheus Project is lucky to have Brandon on the team. A Ph.D. Candidate at the University of New Brunswick in Electrical Engineering, Brandon brings a whole new set of skills to the table.

Brandon worked towards his undergraduate degree in Computer Engineering at Queen's University in Kingston, ON. During this time he was very involved with the Queen's Bands, as well as working at the student run Publishing and Copy Centre and the Queen's University technology support centre.

After graduation, he began working full time at Computer-Talk Technology in 2006 where he started in the Quality Assurance department. After a short while, Brandon began taking on more responsibilities including updating and maintaining production code. By the end of his time at CTT, Brandon was assisting with high level design of customer applications as well as some application development.

In the fall of 2007, Brandon decided to dive back into academia and focused his research on wireless communications, with his Master's thesis titled "An Efficient Architecture for Closed-Loop Power-Control Access" which proposed and implemented a cost-effective means to gain access to a wireless communication channel using mostly off the shelf components.  He successfully defended his Master's thesis in the fall of 2009. Brandon is now working towards his Ph.D. at the University of New Brunswick.

Brandon currently is helping ProSolarTec develop new systems to track the sun.  Using his experience in robotics and embedded programming he has been successful in designing and building a chronological tracking system for the Kinley Duel Mirror System.

Beta Gamma Runs Steam Engine - 2 August 2009

The Beta Gamma Prototype of the Kinley Dual Mirror System was successful in producing steam that ran a small Steam Engine on the 2nd of August 2009. The Prometheus Team had set out to test a new receiver that was developed to produce steam at greater efficiency. It wasn't long after the Sun's rays hit the receiver that steam came rushing out the discharge. Connecting the steam line to a model steam engine the Team showed how easy mechanical energy could be created using the Prometheus Technology.
