Jason Zimmerman, a recent MUCS alum (Dec 2015), will be spending this spring working as a NASA intern at the Johnson Space Center. Jason will be working on a team writing flight control software that communicates between Orion's Guidance Navigation and Control's (GN&C) Space Integrated GPS / Inertial Navigation Unit (SIGI) and Orion's Launch Abort System (LAS). He will be modeling the software with System Modeling Language (SysML), which encapsulates UML2 and also includes hardware modeling along with many other types of models.

Congratulations to Jason for earning this terrific opportunity. The MUCS faculty are sure he'll make valuable contributions to his project at NASA!
