Professor Bruce JO, Department of Mechanical Engineering, 

SUNY Korea, won the US Air Force Office of Scientific Research (AFOSR) Project


Professor Bruce JO of the Department of Mechanical Engineering has won an order from the US Air Force Office of Scientific Institute (AFOSR) for a project called “Magnetic and Inertial Sensing Fusion for the Space Localization and Navigation.” Professor Bruce JO’s research team received a contract of $100,000 worth project from the Space Division of the US Air Force Office of Scientific Research and starting on October 2021 they will conduct related researches for 2 years. The research team will be performing a study to increase the precision in position recognition by combining the technologies for magnetic and inertial sensors in the case where the environment continuously changes or where position recognition signals such as GPS (Global Positioning System) cannot be used. Professor Bruce JO said, “This research will provide the foundation for technologies related to strategic weapon development, which are required by the U.S. Army’s Space Force as well as the Army, Air Force, and Navy, and the source technology used for prolonged position estimation, which is the key of tactical training.”
