I first met Travis Wood when he was a developer on the Structures Analysis Program (SAM). SAM was a system used at the Air Force Flight Test Center to process and display aerostructures data in real-time and post-test.
Travis was a an amazing guy and I was lucky to have known him. Periodically we would talk about his latest amazing adventure. He built and competed in the battle bots robot competition. He was a contestant on I think two reality TV shows. Travis was an amateur radio enthusiast as well. Travis even competed in the DARPA challenge with a autonomous Toyota pickup.
His website "R" Junk Work's shows his projects in more detail.
I want to send my deepest sympathy to Kathy and Travis's kids Garrick and Veronica.
