Dr. Betz is very effective in this teaching.  He is approachable, knowedgeable, and well-tuned to the skill level(s) of the students.  I recommend this course to anyone who requires a working knowledge of GPS and its response to interference – navigation, guidance, weapons, test engineers, etc.

Course: 336

After 20 years in the GNSS domain (with emphasis in SBAS), [the instructor was able to] recap, reinforce knowledge and also deepen my knowledge in some areas where I had less experience. The goals have been met. I liked the course a lot. [Dr. Hegarty] was very clear, kind and with a very good background and recognition at international level. I was honored to be taught by Dr. Hegarty. Very good time management, too.

[I would recommend this course to] any group that has anything related to machine control (hardware, component software, system software, positioning and controls). Really appreciated the MATLAB code examples.

I enjoyed the examples in MATLAB. The fully coded navigator in MATLAB was very useful.

All topics were useful. We could have spent more time on any one topic, however, real learning will come as we practice the topics which will help us with our jobs.

[Mr. Vaujin] speak clearly, is easy to hear and goes over specific point to make sure we understand basic principles and relationships.

A great instructor [Dr. Pue] on the nitty gritty of Kalman filters. [The course] combined topics from at least 7 different college courses –which was good.

Falls Church, VA

[I liked the teaching style] but things moved very quickly, so information covered in earlier lectures was hard to internalize adequately to use in subsequent lectures, i.e., I had limited intuition. Everything made sense as developed/explained.

I really appreciate his energy and the MATLAB code examples.

I liked, a lot, the extensive practical experience of [Mr. Vaujin]. He has many very good tips for implementing the algorithms. He helps you to gain insight as well. The slightly chaotic style of teaching grows on you. The many different mechanizations that are possible, each shown in real MATLAB implementations, are immediately applicable. [ I recommend this course] to colleagues with some first INS experience.
