Enge’s laboratory pioneers satellite-based navigation systems for aviation
and maritime use. One of these systems came on line for aviation in the
United States in July of 2003. Today, it is carried by more than 110,000
aircraft, and similar systems have been deployed in Europe, Japan, and
India. For his work, Enge was elected to the National Academy of
