SAGE PhD student wins international award
Congratulations to School PhD student Shuyang Cheng who has won the US Institute of Navigation (ION) GNSS+ 2017 Student Paper Award for his paper on “Quality Analysis for Satellite Bias Estimation and GNSS PPP Ambiguity Resolution”.
Shuyang, one of only five winners, will be sponsored by ION to attend the annual conference and accept the Award Certificate at the conference in September 2017. Being sponsored by the Institute to present at this technical event carries high academic prestige for Shuyang Cheng and his academic institution. As The Institute notes, ‘Upon completion of their degrees, many prior-year student award winners have become visible leaders in the engineering field of navigation and positioning.’
Shuyang’s PhD research, supervised by A/Prof Jinling Wang, is on precise point positioning (PPP) with Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS). His prize winning paper has developed a new data procedure to make sure the PPP results are both accurate and reliable.
Since 2004, a total of 7 PhD students under supervision of A/Prof Jinling Wang have won this prestigious Student Paper Award at the ION GNSS+ meeting, which is the world’s premier international technical meeting and showcase for satellite navigation and positioning technology. Conference participants, from over 40 countries, are leaders in their field from academia, industry and government.
