The Aerospace Valley 2016 prize, initiated and organized by the aeronautics-astronautics doctoral school, was awarded to Alice Pelamatti, a doctoral student at ISAE SUPAERO. Awarded to Ms. Pelamatti at the Cluster’s member forum, the prize distinguishes academic excellence and the applicability for the aeronautics and astronautics sector of work completed during a doctoral thesis. Alice Pelamatti’s work on CMOS sensors has potential applications for everything imagery related (from the space to the medical sector).
Based on similar criteria, the ISAE-SUPAERO Foundation attributes prizes targeting 10-15% of the best work completed by ISAE-SUPAERO doctoral students. Once again, Alice Pelamatti won a prize along with Gautier Durantin (in neuroergonomics), Maxime Itasse (aeroacoustics), Juan Loukota (vibration of structures), and Victor Ramiro (communication networks). These prizes were awarded during the “soirée des talents”, organized by ISAE-SUPAERO in December 2016.
Jean-Marc Belloir, a final year doctoral student, received the Paul Phelps prize at the NSREC conference as well as the Best Student Paper Award at the RADECS conference. His work is on spatial and nuclear radiation in CMOS image sensors.
The Prix de l’Innovation de l’Académie des Sciences de Toulouse was awarded to Jean-François Allias for his work, first as a doctoral student on the development of a new magnetic motor to be used for piloting, then as a post-doctoral student on the electrical propulsion chain for fixed wing drones.
Finally, Matthieu Claybrough received the Grand Prix Galaxie 2016 award. Mathieu is an ISAE-SUPAERO graduate and founder in 2015 of the start-up DONECLE – specialized in rapid cabin inspection using three autonomous drones, in particular following lightening impact.
2016 was a great year for ISAE-SUPAERO!
