Rob Kursinski - Data Acquisition

Professor, University of Arizona
Research Scientist, Jet Propulsion Labs

Rob has been involved with several racing teams since 1981. He has worked on various data acquisition programs, including developing an early video and data-recording device in the early 80's. He currently is involved in all facets of data acquisition that is used to develop and improve the racecars. Since many race teams feel that it might take a rocket scientist to handle certain tasks, Protomotive Racing wanted to make
sure they had one available on their team. Rob has a Ph.D. in Planetary Science from Cal Tech and a Masters in Electrical Engineering from USC. He is currently involved in a multinational group that is using Global Positioning Satellites to track changes in the earth's atmosphere and is lead scientist on a JPL project team developing a Mars surface exploration vehicle.
