University of Houston engineering doctoral candidate Lorena Basilio was awarded the Best Presentation Award at the GPS 2002 meeting of the Institute of Navigation in Portland, Oregon, this fall. Her paper was titled "Defining the Effective Radiation Point for a Microstrip Patch Antenna."

Basilio is a Ph.D. student in the Applied Electromagnetics Laboratory within the Cullen College of Engineering. Her co-authors were David Jackson and J.T. Williams, both professors in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering.

The award-winning paper discusses current methods of defining a radiation point and why one of those methods is not applicable. Then, according to Basilio, the paper proposes a new method for ascertaining the effective point of radiation and explains why this proposed method serves as a better alternative.

Basilio presented a second paper, titled "A New GPS Microstrip Antenna with Low Susceptibility to Multipath Interference," at the same Antenna Technology session.

The Institute of Navigation is a non-profit professional society dedicated to the advancement of the art and science of navigation. It serves a diverse community, including those interested in air, space, marine, land navigation and position determination.
