2003 Burka Award

Presented to: Dr. Donghyun Kim and Prof. Richard B. Langley

Citation: For their paper “On Ultrahigh-Precision GPS Positioning and Navigation” published in the summer 2003 issue of NAVIGATION, The Journal of The Institute of Navigation, Vol. 50, No. 2, pp. 103.

Dr. Donghyun Kim

Dr. Donghyun Kim joined the Department of Geodesy and Geomatics Engineering at the University of New Brunswick in 1998 as a post-doctoral fellow, where has been a faculty member since 2002. He has a B.E. in urban engineering, and an M.E. and Ph.D. in geomatics from Seoul National University. After obtaining his Ph.D., Dr. Kim spent two years at the Korea Aerospace Research Institute and the Department of Spatial Information Science and Engineering of the University of Maine where he carried out research on ground systems for precision approach and landing. 

Dr. Kim has been involved in GPS research since 1991. He has been mainly working on GPS carrier phase-based positioning and navigation applications under real-time and kinematic environments. Recently, he developed UNB RTK software for a gantry crane auto-steering system. Dr. Kim is currently carrying out research related to ultrahigh-performance RTK positioning and navigation at a high data rate (up to a 50 Hz data rate), with applications to RTK-based machine control, multiple-mode communication RTK system, remote-controlled and autonomous RTK system, medium- and long-baseline RTK system, geo-spatial fusion, local deformation and vibration monitoring, and GPS receiver performance analysis.
