Associate Professor David Miles has received a $33,947 award from NASA for the Multi-Mission MAGnetometer Denoising and Sensor Resiliency through Statistical Decomposition and ARtificial Intelligence (MAGSTAR) project.
The project's Principal Investigator, Dr. Matt Finley at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center, worked in the Miles Research Lab as a postdoctoral researcher. Finley received his PhD in Electrical and Computer Engineering from the University of Iowa in 2021. Finley and Miles developed algorithms to use statistics, signal processing, and machine learning to remove noise from magnetic field measurements on the ESA-funded Swarm-Echo spacecraft. This proposal seeks to extend and generalize those algorithms so they can be applied to other satellite projects such as Parker Solar Probe (PSP), GRACE Follow On (GRACE-FO) and DISCOVR.
