Team FPG-eh Bios

In this section, we introduce the members of Team FPG-eh, which is comprised of three graduate and two undergraduate students. Between February and April 2007, we developed a LORAN-C Positioning System with the support of two graduate student instructors and one professor. Below, we describe our technical and educational backgrounds, and detail our responsibilities on the project.
