John Dyer received a B.S. in Physiology from Oklahoma State University, and the B.S., M.S. and Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering from the University of Oklahoma. His main research interests are in instrumentation, data acquisition, and signal processing of the acquired data. Dr. Dyer applies these interests largely in the area of aviation and navigation, though he has applied his work in areas such as Cardiac Electrophysiology research and gas-fracture wellhead stress analysis.
Professor Dyer has worked on projects with the FAA and the OU Department of Aviation to implement the Ground Based Augmentation System, a Differential-GPS based aircraft landing system. He has also worked on projects involving passive multilateration for aircraft tracking, Distance Measuring Equipment (DME, a standard FAA navigation technology), and Space Based Augmentation System (SBAS) error analysis. Dr. Dyer is a Commercial-rated pilot and occasionally lends his piloting skill set to test flights for assessing navigation technology performance.
