The Department of Aerospace Engineering and Engineering Mechanics is hosting a special seminar on “Responsive Orbits and Space Systems Research,” presented by the Air Force Institute of Technology’s Center for Space Research and Assurance Director Dr. Jonathan Black on Monday Nov. 18. The seminar is being held on UC’s Campus in Braunstein Hall from 9:30 – 10:30 A.M. in room 201.

Black’s presentation will detail recent work in the optimization of responsive orbital maneuvers, orbit determination of such maneuvering spacecraft, and other current trends in space research.

Black earned a BS in Industrial Engineering from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign; an MS in Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering from the Joint Institute for Advancement of Flight Sciences (joint NASA Langley Research Center and George Washington University program); and a PhD in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Kentucky.

He has worked on several successful space experiments and AFIT's Space Vehicle Design sequence. His current research interests include structures, structural dynamics, advanced sensing technologies, space systems engineering, and novel orbit analysis for a wide variety of military and intelligence applications including large lightweight space structures, micro UAV development, and taskable satellites. He is the first AFIT recipient of an AFOSR Young Investigator Award and is an AIAA Associate Fellow.

All are welcome to attend. For more information, contact Teresa Meyer at meyert8@ucmail.uc.edu
