Professor Jade Morton has been elected a fellow of the United Kingdom's Royal Institute of Navigation in a ceremony that featured Princess Anne.

Morton's selection is in recognition of her significant contributions to the understanding of ionospheric effects on navigation satellite signals, development of several innovative signal processing algorithms and excellence in navigation education. 

"It's an honor to be elected and be recognized on the international stage," Morton said. "It was very exciting to be in the same room with Princess Anne and other colleagues from RIN. On stage and at the receiption immediately following the event, she chatted with me and other award winners.  I was very impressed about the research she has done on every one of us."

The Princess Royal Highness Anne presented the fellowship to Morton at the 2019 RIN Annual Meeting in London on July 16, 2019. 

Princess Anne is the second child and only daughter of Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip.
