Armour College of Engineering Research Assistant Professor Mathieu Joerger Awarded ION Early Achievement Award

Joerger_Web.jpgMathieu Joerger, research assistant professor of mechanical and aerospace engineering at Armour College of Engineering, was awarded the Institute of Navigation’s (ION) Early Achievement Award. He was selected to receive the award for his contribution to the development of optimal positioning and integrity monitoring for multi-constellation and multi-sensor navigation systems.

The award has been given annually since 1997 in recognition of an individual early in his or her career who has made an outstanding achievement in the art and science of navigation.

Joerger was presented the award during ION’s International Technical Meeting on January 27, 2015. He has also been the recipient of several ION GNSS+ best presentation awards and the ION Satellite Division’s Parkinson Award (2009).

Joerger is the second Armour College faculty member and researcher working in IIT’s NavLab to have the ION Early Achievement Award bestowed upon them. Samer Khanafseh, research assistant professor, won the award in 2011 for his contributions to the integrity of carrier phase navigation systems. Armour College of Engineering is one of only three institutions to have multiple faculty members who have won the award.
