Prof. Hyder¹s research is in the interaction of spacecraft with the space environment. His recent work has focused on the design of spacecraft systems, especially the electrical power and thermal management subsystems, and on the operation of high sensitivity ir sensors aboard spacecraft. He has also continued work in the physics of high-brightness particle accelerators.
