Hickson/MCAT Build Team Received NASA Group Award

February 7, 2017

Congratulations to Dr. Paul Hickson, who received the Group Achievement Award certificate from NASA on behalf of the Meter Class Autonomous (MCAT) Build Team. 

"This prestigious NASA certificate is awarded to any combination of Government and/or non-Government individuals for an outstanding group accomplishment that has contributed substantially to NASA's mission." The MCAT group received the award for "outstanding support for the construction of The NASA/Air Force Research Laboratory Orbital Debris Observatory and installation of the Meter-class Autonomous Telescope."

Paul's specific contribution in the team has been to provide advice, and also the software that controls the observatory, tracks orbiting objects, and analyzes the images. Congratulations again to Paul and the MCAT Build Team!
