Stanley E. Woodard
Stanley E. Woodard has been with the NASA Langley Research Center since 1987. His national and international recognitions include winning two R&D 100 Awards: Magnetic Field Response Measurement Acquisition System (2006) and SansEC Sensing Geometric Patterns (2008), being interviewed for the US Astronaut Corp (1997), being selected as a US Black Engineer of the Year for Outstanding Technical Contribution (US Black Engineer Magazine, 1996) and for NASA Exceptional Service Medal, being selected to rank of Associate Fellow with the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics, and achieving the rank of Eagle Scout. He has over 70 publications on diverse topics as spacecraft design methods, spacecraft in-flight dynamics, nuclear physics, piezo-acoustic system, and measurement systems. His current research focuses on developing electrical devices that function with no need for electrical connections or closed-circuits. A press release of this work made Reuters Press, Yahoo News, and other US and International newspapers. To date, 18 US and international patent applications have been filed on the systems he has codeveloped. One of his patents was the first patent application submitted by the US government this millennium. He received his Ph.D., M.E., and B.S. degrees from Duke University, Howard University, and Purdue University, respectively. Prior to his current research, he led a team of scientists and engineers to study spacecraft in-flight dynamics. As a result of this study, he developed and led two in-flight dynamics experiments on UARS spacecraft.
