Associate Professor Robert Sanner and his former student advisee C. Glen Henshaw (M.S '99, Ph.D. '03) will receive a best paper award from the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) for "Variational Technique for Spacecraft Trajectory Planning" which was published in the ASCE Journal of Aerospace Engineering in July of 2010.

The work is derived from Henshaw's Ph.D. thesis. He now works as a senior engineer in the Center for Space Technology at the Naval Reseach Laboratory in Washington DC, where he leads the NRL's FREND (Front-end Robotics Enabling Near-term Demonstration) project, developing state of the art autonomous rendezvous and docking systems for satellites not pre-designed for servicing.

The award will be presented at the ASCE Earth and Space Conference next March.
