    INDEPENDENT PROJECTS (Unfunded—seeking funded opportunities to work on these)

    1) Astronautical Ontology – Orbital Space Domain Ontology and Taxonomy (©2011-2017 Robert J. Rovetto.)

    Status: In progress. Seeking funded opportunities to work sustainably on this, e.g., (a) a degree scholarship (PhD, MS or other for this project) (b) an employment opportunity for this project, (c) companies or univ.professors to apply to grants, mentors in ontology and astrodynamics to help realize this project. Project Page: www.purl.org/space-ontology
    Description: Originally conceived in 2011 (orbital debris ontology), my project involves applying ontology to the broader orbital space domain (space debris, SSA, etc.) to model the orbital environment, classify space objects, ontologically model orbital concepts, and provide a unified knowledge model. I've laid out a series of research topics/papers to pursue, have published some. I’ve conceive this project as involving various space agencies & academia partners. It is intended to be a multi-organizational project because it has potential to be globally beneficial. I wish to use this project to allow me to study astronautics (my original passion), and complete a space degree.

    2) Maritime (2008 & 2015 – Unpublished, but completed)

    - Maritime Aid to Navigation Guide/Manual (2008 – see Volunteer section, below)
    -Boat Operations Manual (2015) I produced for a recreational tour boating business that I worked for as a captain.
