Michael Braasch, Ph.D., is Thomas Professor of Electrical Engineering and director of the Avionics Engineering Center (AEC) at Ohio University.
He was one of the pioneering researchers who investigated the application of software radio and transform-domain signal processing techniques for GPS receivers. His work also includes research in high-precision GPS positioning through differential carrier-phase processing.
Braasch is internationally recognized for his work on characterizing the effects of GPS multipath on both pseudorange and carrier-phase baseband signal processing and is one of the originators of the integrated multipath-limiting antenna for GPS. In addition to GPS-related research, he has also worked on other navigation systems including INS, ILS, MLS, VOR, Loran-C, and DME.
Braasch was profiled in the Inside GNSS feature, Human Engineering, March-April 2006.
