Thursday, Jan 9, 2014, we will meet for lunch at 11:30 at Northrop Grumman, 4065 Colonel Glenn Highway in Beavercreek
For lunch we will have a Hot Taco Bar (grilled chicken and steak) catered by Qdoba. The cost is $8/person and includes meat, tortillas/taco shells, three salsas/cheese/sour cream/guacamole/lettuce, tortilla chips, and brownies and beverages. If you wish to attend, please RSVP to Brian.Roadruck.firstname.lastname@example.org by COB on Tuesday, 7 January.
Our guest speaker will be Prof. Jim Garrison of Purdue University.
James L Garrison has been a member of the faculty at Purdue since 2000; he is currently an Associate Professor in the School of Aeronautics and Astronautics, with a courtesy appointment in the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering. From 1988 to 2000 he was employed by the NASA, first at the Langley Research Center in Hampton VA, and later at the Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt MD. He earned a PhD from the University of Colorado, Boulder, in 1997 and also holds a BS from the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute and an MS from Stanford University. He is the author or co-author of 26 journal articles and 52 conference papers. He holds six US Patents and has served as the chair of GNSS+R 2012, an IEEE-NASA-co-sponsored conference. Prof. Garrison has received a number of awards, including a NASA Exceptional Space Act Award, a NASA New Investigator grant, the Institute of Navigation Early Achievement Award, and a Keck Futures Initiative grant.
Prof. Garrison’s current research interests include Earth remote sensing using signals of opportunity and Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS) signal processing.
His topic Thursday is “New Methods for Earth Remote Sensing Using GNSS and Signals of Opportunity.”
We will be meeting at 11:30 and start lunch at 12:00 in the Mustang Room at the Hope Hotel.
The menu is Tuscan Chicken with Wild Rice. There is no wine or soda. There has been a price increase this year and we have to adjust accordingly, so now the cost is $14 ($12 for students). If you plan to attend, please RSVP by noon, Tuesday, 8 October, to Brian.Roadruck.email@example.com.
Our speaker will be Dr. Grace Gao, an assistant professor in the Aerospace Engineering Department, University of Illinois. She obtained her Ph.D. degree in Electrical Engineering at Stanford University in 2008. Prof. Gao has won a number of awards, including RTCA William E. Jackson Award, Institute of Navigation Early Achievement Award, 50 GNSS Leaders to Watch by GPS World Magazine, and multiple best presentation awards at ION GNSS conferences. Prof. Gao serves the Institute of Navigation as an elected Council member and is co-chair of the Technical Committee on Air Navigation.
Topic: Cooperative GNSS
Most of the existing platforms that include GPS, such as UAVs or smart phones, are also equipped with communication capabilities as well as other navigation sensors. We will explore signal processing for not just one, but multiple GNSS receivers and other navigational sensors cooperatively and use examples to show the benefits and improvement in accuracy, availability and security.
