Luca Sterpone coordinates the “Aerospace and Reconfigurable Computing Team” within the Dipartimento di Automatica e Informatica of Politecnico di Torino. The group is federated within the CAD group leaded by Prof. Matteo Sonza Reorda. All the people of the “Aerospace and Reconfigurabble Computing Team” are fully managed by Luca Sterpone in terms of financial support (contracts, missions and other expenses), research support (computers, boards and any type of equipment). The group includes the following member:
- Boyang Du, Assistant Professor – RTD-A
- Sarah Azimi, Post-Doc
- Ludovica Bozzoli, PhD Student, Cycle 33
- Corrado De Sio, PhD Student, Cycle 35
Luca Sterpone coordinates different collaborations at the national and international level:
- Coordination of the research activity with the Computing System for Space (COSYSPACE) leaded by Monica Alderighi of the Istituto Nazionale di Astrofisica (INAF).
- Principal Investigator of the Politecnico di Torino group within the VEGAS H2020 project.
- Coordination of the research activity with the group Radiation Effects and Circuit Designs (RADUS) ofl Prof. Miguel Angel Aguirre Echànove from School of Engineering of Sevilla.
- Management with the Xilinx INC company of the “Single Event Effects European Consortium” supported by Xilinx INC,
- General Motor (GM). In the framework of the research collaboration, Luca Sterpone coordinates the research activity with the Electronics, SW Integration and Testing and Control GM control group.
- European Space Agency (ESA). In the framework of the research collaboration, Luca Sterpone coordinates the research activity with the ASIC/FPGA Engineer division TEC-EDM of ESA.
- Thales Alenia Space (TAS). In the framework of the research collaboration, Luca Sterpone coordinates the research activity related to the radiation test execution, analysis tools and mitigation for ASIC and FPGA devices for space satellites.
Luca Sterpone has been the academic tutor of the Reconfigurable Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (ReCoUAV) project for the Alta Scuola Politecnica (ASP) in the period 2012 – 2014 managing eight students divided in two teams with the purpose of investigating the potential future applications of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) based on a reconfigurable flight computer for civil purpose [PR1].
