2011 Region III AIAA Student Conference

NASA Summer Intern Wins Second Place at AIAA Student Conference
Charles Schultz placed second in the Undergraduate Technical Paper category at the Region III AIAA Student Conference held at the University of Dayton on April 2nd, 2011. Mr. Schultz conducted his research on an adaptive trajectory prediction feedback algorithm for climbing flights while interning with the Aviation Systems Division at NASA Ames Research Center in the summer of 2010. As a proof of concept, he demonstrated how his algorithm could enhance trajectory prediction accuracy by a factor of at least two for a sample of 18 climbing flights. Both the paper and presentation were well received by the judges and other conference participants. After completing his undergraduate degree this month in Aerospace Engineering at the University of Michigan, Mr. Schultz will be returning to NASA Ames for the summer to apply the feedback he received at the student conference to further improve the performance of his adaptive climb algorithm.
