Dr. Bob Reynolds, Vice President for Advanced Programs at STAR, recently co-authored a book with Dr. Arjun Tan (Department of Physics, Chemistry, and Mathematics, Alabama A&M University) entitled Theory of Satellite Fragmentation in Orbit. Dr. Reynolds first began developing theories and algorithms related to on-orbit satellite fragmentation as a leading scientist for the NASA (National Aeronautics and Space Administration) Orbital Debris research program at the Johnson Space Center in Houston, Texas. As a result of this work at NASA, Dr. Reynolds became an internationally recognized authority on orbital debris and whose unique expertise is highlighted in this fresh, scholarly reference.

Bob is a prolific scientist/engineer and has published more than 150 technical papers on orbital debris and related topics since earning his Ph.D. in Astronomy from The Ohio State University. Today, Bob is responsible for STAR’s modeling and simulation efforts that support the company’s electromagnetic technology development, driving our advanced radar, electronic warfare, and countermeasures systems. A huge congratulations to Dr. Reynolds—our friend and colleague! It’s people like Bob that make STAR shine!
