Savransky selected for NASA Early Career Faculty Award

University campuses are bursting with ideas for novel space technologies, and NASA takes note. Through the agency’s Space Technology Research Grants program, NASA has selected nine university-led research proposals to study early-stage technologies. The grants allow untenured, assistant professors early in their careers to lend their expertise and help identify and mature capabilities of interest to NASA.

"New space technologies aren’t developed in a bubble – we engage the best and brightest across all sectors, including academia,” said Prasun Desai, deputy associate administrator of NASA’s Space Technology Mission Directorate in Washington. “These outstanding early career faculty help drive innovation and we look forward to their insights on solutions for very challenging aspects of space exploration.”

The Sibley School's Dmitry Savransky is one of three US researchers selected in the area of "Intelligent Calibration of Sensor Constellations." Thanks to miniaturized tech, small and cube satellites are being equipped with more advanced systems. Still, calibrating instruments across constellations made up of multiple small spacecraft is challenging. This topic aims to improve calibration of sensors distributed across a spacecraft constellation.
