Remote lecturing

The current pandemic has changed our working environment and many things which up to now were considered a given.

As always we need to improvise, adapt and overcome and that’s what’s happening. I started this week delivering lectures remotely using a multiple display setup and a real-time virtual board and the results are outstanding!
Below a photo capture from the student’s view point.

All-day studying Sundays

Right or wrong, that’s my reality lately.

When I was a PhD student, I had the following poster in my room. Success does not come on an autopilot. You have to put in the time, the work, the discipline, endure adversity, even (and especially) when no one is looking. Don’t count backwards, count upwards emphasizing your progress and accomplishments.

The following part come under the section of “further comments” of a course critique form filled in by students at the end of each course. In this case the student was already an experienced Research Engineer working on the Korean Fighter Program KFX.

Breaking down F-35 Nonlinear Dynamic Inversion CLAWs

As part of the ITPS DFCS course update some new content was created on NDI control laws. The simplified break-down makes it easier for student non-FCS specialists to identify the components of the NDI control strategy and understand their role and the control flow.
