Maarten Uijt de Haag
Expert at CTAE
Maarten Uijt de Haag is a Professor of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science and a Principal Investigator (PI) with the Avionics Engineering Center at Ohio University since 1999. He obtained his M.S.E.E. degree from Delft University in The Netherlands in 1994 and a Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering from Ohio University in Athens, Ohio in 1999. He has taught on various subjects such as Inertial Navigations Systems (INS), radio navigation systems, integrated navigation systems, GPS, target tracking, and aviation standards and software certification.
Maarten Uijt de Haag has been involved with navigation-related research since 1992. He has worked on the development of GPS software radios and advanced GPS processing techniques for low carrier-to-noise ratio tracking, high dynamic tracking, and interference mitigation, Local Area Augmentation Systems, GPS/INS Integration, and MLS/GPS integration. More recently, he has been involved in the use of GPS for Synthetic Vision Systems, terrain referenced navigation and tracking systems, fault detection and isolation techniques, analysis and flight testing of Inertial/GPS for navigation and attitude, indoor positioning, laser- and vision-based navigation of aerial and ground vehicles, and hazard monitors for alerting and notification as part of flight deck systems.
Maarten Uijt de Haag has lectured extensively throughout the United States and Europe for organizations including The International Society for Optical Engineering (SPIE), The Institute of Navigation (ION), the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), the Polytechnical University of Catalonia (UPC), and the NATO Research and Technology Organization.
He has authored or co-authored over 85 navigation-related publications, including four book chapters. He is a senior member of the IEEE and AIAA, and a member of the SPIE and ION. He is an Associate Editor for NAVIGATION: The Journal of the Institute of Navigation, Finance Chair on the Council of the ION, and member of the AIAA Digital Avionics Technical Committee. Maarten Uijt de Haag was awarded the 2008 Institute of Navigation Colonel Thomas L. Thurlow Award for his contributions to laser-based navigation and integrity monitors for synthetic vision systems.
