Frederick A. Leve Research Aerospace Engineer at the Air Force Research Laboratory, Space Vehicles Directorate, received his Ph.D. in Aerospace Engineering from the University of Florida in 2010. While at the University of Florida, he received the IAF Silver Hermann Oberth Medal and the AIAA Abe Zarem Award for Astronautics. Currently, he is the technical advisor to the Guidance, Navigation, and Controls Group and has published many papers in the area of attitude dynamics and control, specifically with respect to momentum control systems and also performs research in under-actuated control, fault tolerant control, control allocation, analytical mechanics, and system identification. Dr. Leve is a recipient of the 2014 AFRL Early Career Award. Brian J. Hamilton Engineering Fellow at Honeywell Aerospace, received a BSEE with Honors from the University of Illinois, 1976.Mr. Hamilton has nearly 40 years of experience at Honeywell (formerly, Sperry) and has participated in the development of CMG technology since its infancy. In recent years, his research focus has been on CMG array control and steering, and the general application of momentum systems to agile spacecraft attitude control. Other areas of specialty include nonlinear modeling, controls design, system optimization and active magnetic suspension. Mr. Hamilton holds 12 patents. Mason A. Peck Associate Professor at Cornell University in Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, received his Ph.D. in Aerospace Engineering from the University of California, Los Angeles, in 2001. He has worked as an aerospace engineer since 1994 and has been on the faculty at Cornell since 2004. From late 2011 through early 2014 he was NASA’s Chief Technologist. In that role, he served as the agency’s chief strategist for technology investment and prioritization and advocate for innovation in aeronautics and space technology.His research lab focuses on fundamental research in space technology that can be advanced through flight experiments. Examples include Violet, a nanosatellite for demonstrating CMG steering laws, and KickSat,the world’s first crowdfunded spacecraft. Dr. Peck holds 19 patents in the U.S. and the E.U. and has over 100 academic publications. He received the NASA Distinguished Public Service Medal in 2014.
