We had some fantastic submissions to the 2017 EAP University Grant Program! Applicants used STK to demonstrate their problem solving and creating thinking. Selecting the top scenario was a challenging decision, but we are happy to announce the following winners:
1st Place: Donna Jennings, Jill Davis, & Pavel Galchenko from Missouri University of Science & Technology: "Verification and Validation of Student-Designed Guidance, Navigation, and Control Algorithms"
2nd Place: Jacob Feltis, Benjamin Geadelmann, Yuh Ming Mok, & Austin Langford from the University of Minnesota: "Asteroid Deflection Using a Dynamic Gravity Tractor"
3rd Place: Adam Benabbou from University of Alabama: "Use of Autonomous UAS for a Bent Pipe Communication System in Antarctica"
Congratulations to these amazing teams! As a special treat, we will be hosting a webinar with the Missouri University team to learn about their study on Verification and Validation. We will keep you posted on the air date!
