John Springmann, an MXL PhD student, was recently selected to compete in the Frank J. Reed Student Scholarship Competition at the SmallSat Conference this summer. This is his second time, and during the first, he won first place. The title of his paper is “On-Orbit Calibration of Photodiodes for Attitude Determination”. With these techniques, John is performing detailed attitude determination with coarse, low-cost attitude sensors.
Good luck John!
