I will be giving a demonstration of FreeFlyer on Thursday, September 28 at 2:00 pm in SERC 3070. Faculty and Students feel free to drop on by! I have attached the flyer, here: FreeFlyerWithAttitude

Christopher Simpson will present a FreeFlyer demonstration, “FreeFlyer with Attitude,” on Thursday, September 28, 2017 at 2:00 pm in SERC 3070. FreeFlyer with Attitude will showcase the high-fidelity flight dynamics software with a Earth imaging satellite mission plan with specific pointing requirements. FreeFlyer is currently used on several NASA missions, including the Magnetosphere Multiscale (MMS) mission which set the record for closest flying formation at 7.2 km in September of 2016. Mr. Simpson recently interned with a.i. solutions, Inc. over the summer and worked with the FreeFlyer Tech Support team. He recently graduated with his B.S. in Aerospace Engineering and Mechanics from The University of Alabama in May 2016. He was recently awarded a SMART scholarship from the Naval Air Warfare Center – Weapons Division, China Lake. He is pursuing his Ph.D. at The University of Alabama under Dr. Charles O’Neill.
