Kenneth M. Sobel

The City College of New York, USA


Dr. Sobel's doctoral dissertation at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in 1980 proved the stability of the CGT approach to MRAC for multi-input multi-output systems. During the period 1980-87, Dr. Sobel was a research engineer at the Lockheed California Company where he developed novel modern control laws for advanced technology flight vehicles. Since 1987 Dr. Sobel has been with The City College of New York where he is currently Professor of Electrical Engineering. Dr. Sobel has published over 70 papers in the areas of eigenstructure assignment, robust control, adaptive control, and the application of modern control theory to flight control design. He is coauthor of a book entitled Direct Adaptive Control Algorithms Theory and Applications. Dr. Sobel has been awarded summer faculty fellowships at NASA Langley Research Center and at the U.S. Air Force Wright Laboratory. He has been principal investigator on U.S. Air Force contracts. He received a NASA FAR award for research on eigenstructure assignment for fault tolerant flight control design. Dr. Sobel is a former Associate Editor of the Journal of Guidance, Control, and Dynamics and an Associate Fellow of the AIAA.
