research overview

  • Professor Holzinger's creative efforts applying autonomy, controls & dynamical systems, and perception to space situational awareness (SSA) and space guidance, navigation, and control (GN&C) focus on a scholarly `theory to hardware' approach. Using this philosophy theoretical investigations are confirmed through empirical observations of on-orbit space objects. This combination of empirical data generation assets makes Dr. Holzinger's lab exceedingly unique, generating graduate students with strong theoretical foundations in astrodynamics, controls, and sensor systems, while also comfortable manipulating raw sensor data and operating the electro-optical assets themselves. Dr. Holzinger's sensing assets include several Raven-class telescopes, wide-Field of View optical systems, SDR receivers, and the soon-to-be-completed RECONSO 6U CubeSat.
