Scholarships for domestic and international students are available for Masters and PhD by research in fields that I am involved with. Please contact me for details.

A/Prof Matt Garratt is the Deputy Head of School (Research) for the school of Engineering and IT and is based in the Canberra campus of UNSW Australia. His main research areas focus on sensing, guidance and control for autonomous systems. He has received over $3million in research funding and has been Chief Investigator on 17 external grants, including lead CI on 2 ARC research grants.

Some of his research successes include demonstration of terrain following using vision for an unmanned helicopter, landing an unmanned helicopter onto a moving deck simulator and control of helicopters using neural networks. Some of his current research projects include achieving autononous flight in cluttered environments using monocular cameras and range sensors, landing UAVs on moving platforms, formation satellite control, adaptive flight control for flapping wing and rotary wing vehicles, Trusted Human-Autonomy Teaming in Teleoperations and Self-organising Unmanned Systems in Contested RF Environments.

Matt is a member of the Trusted Autonomy Group in the School of Engineering and IT.

He is senior member of the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA), member of the IEEE, member of the American Helicopter Society (AHS), the Association for Unmanned Vehicles Systems International (AUVSI) and the Australian Association for Unmanned Systems (AAUS).
