EAP University Grant Competition Winners for 2017

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!
