The Institute of Navigation’s (ION) Satellite Division presented Dr. Dorota Grejner-Brzezinska with its Johannes Kepler Award September 16, 2016 at the ION GNSS+ Conference (Portland, Oregon) for her outstanding contributions in advancing high-accuracy GNSS/INS integrated systems, educating future navigation leaders, and for strengthening the ties between satellite navigation and geodesy. Since the early 1990s, Dr. Grejner-Brzezinska has demonstrated sustained and significant contributions in advancing research in applications of GPS/GNSS and multi-sensor integrated systems. The widely known accumulated expertise in her field involved numerous graduate students, post-doctoral researchers and many national and international collaborators. Early in her career, Dr. Grejner-Brzezinska developed a novel approach to computing high precision GPS orbits that demonstrated the unique capability of diurnal and semi-diurnal Earth Rotation Parameters estimation using GPS signals. This led to advanced development of NASA-sponsored new approach (P-KOD™) to precise orbit determination for Low Earth Orbiters.
