Heyne team with payload.Terrain Relative Navigation and Employee Development (TRaiNED)was selected as the first Hands-On Project Experience (HOPE) Training Opportunity (TO) mission. The scientific objective of TRaiNED is to advance Terrain Relative Navigation (TRN) technology by collecting a set of correlated ground imagery, Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) and Global Positioning System (GPS) data during a sounding rocket flight and performing post-flight data analysis. In addition, TRaiNED will be developing and verifying a TRN filter for the post-flight data analysis. In addition to the scientific objectives, TRaiNED will provide hands-on flight project experience to enhance the technical, leadership and project skills for the selected NASA in-house project team. The principal investigator is Mr. Martin Heyne/NASA JPL.
