Curtis Cohenour has worked in industry as an electrical engineer and project manager. He joined Ohio University in 2002 as a research engineer working for the Ohio University Avionics Engineering Center. His recent work has included research with the Air Force Research Laboratory in Dayton, Ohio, aimed at understanding and correcting image geo-registration errors from a number of airborne platforms. He has worked on projects covering a wide variety of avionics and navigation systems such as the Instrument Landing System (ILS), Microwave Landing System (MLS), Distance Measuring Equipment (DME), LAAS, WAAS, and GPS. He is a registered professional engineer in Ohio and West Virginia.

All Degrees Earned: Ph.D., Electrical Engineering, Ohio University, 2009; M.S., Ohio University, 1988; B.S., West Virginia Institute of Technology, 1980
