ISR News Story

Grad student's high altitude work highlighted in GPS World


ISR grad student Luke Winternitz has co-written an article on his NASA work for the April issue of GPSWorld magazine. The article explains the development of a GPS receiver for high-altitude (above the GPS constellation) satellite navigation. Luke notes, "There are many challenging issues with operating a receiver above the GPS constellation and ours is one of the first to specifically target this application."

Winternitz is currently working on his Ph.D. in the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department. He is advised by Professor P.S. Krishnaprasad (ECE/ISR). He received his B.S. in Electrical Engineering from Maryland in December 2000. Since then, he has worked at the NASA Goddard Space Flight Center while pursuing his Ph.D. In January he was able to switch to full-time Ph.D. research in stochastic control and machine learning as part of NASA-Goddard's study-fellowship program.  | Read the story at GPS World: 1) Flash version 2) non-Flash version |
