I have been researching Peter Ouzts and the genealogy and history/ancestry for him. I found that I am possibly related through a distant relative, so I thought I would look into Mr. Ouzts a bit more. So far, here is what I found:
Peter Ouzts was actually born George Peter Ouzts the 1st and was born March 25, 1757 in Germany> He died in 1829 in Edgefield County South Carolina. Mr. Ouzts married Elizabeth Harling in Edgefield County South Carolina.
George Peter Ouzts I and Elizabeth Harling actually had a lot of children (15 to be exact).
There was a Peter Ouzts, one of the children, who was born on January 01, 1803 and died on December 03, 1844.
I am still looking to see if the Peter Ouzts I’m interested in is actually George Peter Ouzts the first, or if it’s his son, Peter Ouzts. If I find further information, I will try to updated this post.
Update, September 4, 2012
There is an interesting document from Peter J. Ouzts about H-Infinity Based Integrated Flight / Propulsion Control Design for a STOVL Aircraft in Transition Flight.
Peter Ouzts from the NASA Glenn Research Center wrote a document titled “Mode Transition Design Considerations for an Airbreathing Combined-Cycle Hypersonic Vehicle”.
Peter Ouzts was at the FAP 2008 Annual Meeting, where he presented on the “Impact of Mode Transition on Hypersonic Vehicle Flight Performance”.
There is also another Peter Ouzts PDF here: here from Mr. Peter Ouzts.
What’s also interesting is that the NASA page referencing Peter Ouzts.
There is an interesting, must-read report/document that mentions Peter Ouzts that is all about the future of the rocket.
