MARS ROBOTICS TEAM:
MARSrobotics team consists of seven full time young hardworking engineers. We have three computer engineers working on the development of the advanced autopilot system hardware and software as well as the MARSEye project. In addition, we have two mechatronics engineers working on the system hardware-software development and integration, one aeronautical engineer, and one electronics system engineer. In addition MARSrobotics is investing in training limited number of young engineers selected based on performance. The team is supervised by a number of engineering faculty from Jordan university of Science and Technology. These faculty act as consultant and project advisors in the areas of embedded systems development, image processing, and autonomous solutions.
MARS robotics team is led by its general manager and founder Dr. Mohammad Amin AL-Jarrah. Dr. Al-Jarrah is an unmanned vehicles systems expert with over 80 publications in international journals and conferences. He holds three Master degrees: Machine Design, Applied Mechanics, and Aeronautics and Astronautics from Stanford University, California USA. He holds PhD in Aeronautics and Astronautics form Stanford University too in 1989. Dr. Jarrah served as the Director of JUST unmanned air-vehicle project in 1992-1997. He did many projects in the area of unmanned systems and industrial solutions in the area of automation and manufacturing for leading industries in the region: Jordan Armed Forces, Tawazun, Mubadala, Emirates Armed forces Research Center, Jordan Ports Authority, Gulf Aircraft Maintenance company (GAMCO) and many other institutions. Dr. Al- Jarrah is the leading scientist in the area of Autonomous Unmanned Systems in the region and the pioneer of Mechatronics systems education in the region.
