Congratulations to Brent E. Tweddle, Ph.D. candidate at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), who received the 2013 Boeing Engineering Student of the Year Award from Boeing and Flightglobal at the Paris Air Show.
Tweddle, a student in the MIT Department of Aeronautics and Astronautics’ Space Systems Laboratory, was recognized for exceptional academic, research, and professional skills, and leadership of a program known as SPHERES VERTIGO. The program demonstrated new vision-based navigation algorithms that had never before been tested in space. Vision-based navigation is considered to be a critical element of enabling future autonomous servicing, inspection, and in-space assembly missions.
