10 13 February 2014Atmospheric Flight Mechanics TC1013 February 2014Atmospheric Flight Mechanics TC10 Education Working Group Edmund Field

11 13 February 2014Atmospheric Flight Mechanics TC11 K-12 Working Group This was the deadline for a progress report WG Chair unable to continue on TC Recommend disbanding unless someone wants to step up! Possible new life with specific targets: A ~ 2-page white paper that describes what AFM is and what we do (aimed at high school/college students and teachers) A 1-page hands-on demonstration of something we do that is fun and simple (aimed at middle school students and teachers) Dont be afraid to steal … or borrow Any takers? 1 Chair and 1 rep from each Subcommittee 1 year to get them done

12 13 February 2014Atmospheric Flight Mechanics TC12 Most Influential Paper Peggy Williams-Hayes

13 13 February 2014Atmospheric Flight Mechanics TC13 TC Membership Update We Have Survived Downsizing Were Now Leaner and Meaner (well, leaner anyway) If You Are Due to Rotate Off in 2009… Consider extending for at least one more year Under 35 years old and International Members dont count toward roster limit We should ask for a 4-year commitment, rather than 3 If You Arent Sure When You Rotate Off, Ask! Let Me Know ASAP if You Want to Stay On Youll need a special assignment Conference General and Technical Chairs should stay on through their conferences

14 13 February 2014Atmospheric Flight Mechanics TC14 Recap of 2008 AFM Conference 104 Technical Papers Only 75 Full Paid Registrations (out of 932!) How We Fared: (TC: Key Indicator – Full Paid) GNC: 375 – 482 AFM: 75 – 75 MST: 95 – 93 Astro: 90 – 126 APA: 100 – 156 AFM Typically Had 3-5 Concurrent Sessions with 25 – 60 People Each GNC had 9; MST, Astro, APA 4 each (several co-sponsored sessions) Many more attended our sessions than registered for AFM GNC Was Listed First on the Registration Website

15 13 February 2014Atmospheric Flight Mechanics TC15 MCF Award Reps for 2009 Meeting Minutes from Honolulu List Lawrence and Susana Need a Replacement for Susana

16 13 February 2014Atmospheric Flight Mechanics TC16 Liaison Reports

17 13 February 2014Atmospheric Flight Mechanics TC17 State of the Committee We Survived Edicts to Downsize & Enforce the 3-Year Rule We Are About to Experience Large Turnover in Membership Working Groups Had Varying Success Edmunds leadership on Education WG was outstanding K-12 WG never really got going John Valaseks Most Influential Paper Idea is Taking Off We Renamed our Summer Plenary Session in Honor of Duane McRuer

18 13 February 2014Atmospheric Flight Mechanics TC18 State of the Committee (cont.) Consider Holding Subcommittee Meetings Prior to the TC Meeting Allows a bit more focus for each subcommittee Doesnt break up the TC meeting Maybe end TC meetings earlier Could use the same room, just start earlier Could hold TC meeting later in the week Some Overlooked Items that Deserve Future Focus: TC Member Handbook: Update annually Financial state of the TC: Do we have any finances? TC self-promotion: Define useful ways to spend TAC $$$ Education: Seek out and promote short courses and tutorials Publications: Actively pursue special journal issues

19 13 February 2014Atmospheric Flight Mechanics TC19 New Business Joint and Special Sessions for Chicago Focus for Technical Subcommittees Identify Topic Areas and Topic Chairs Tonight Pass on a List to Ag, Atilla, and Bandu Tonight

20 13 February 2014Atmospheric Flight Mechanics TC20 TC Subcommittees FUNCTIONAL Serve the Institute and the TC Day-to-day functions of the TC Conferences Publications Membership Awards Education Liaison Meets in Summer Follow-up in Winter if needed TECHNICAL Serve the AFM community Identify, inform & support leading edge research and application Professional development courses Conference special sessions, workshops, panel discussions Standards Special AIAA Journal issues Meets in Winter Follow-up in Summer if needed

21 13 February 2014Atmospheric Flight Mechanics TC21 Technical Subcommittees Assignments for Tonight Flight Dynamics: Find a new Chair to replace Gautam Flight Test: Find a new Chair to replace Dave K. Flying Qualities: Kamal is new Chair Missile & Projectile Flight Mechanics: Find a new Chair to replace Mark (Gene is a candidate) Reentry Vehicle & Orbital Mechanics: Find a new Chair to replace Steve D. System Identification: Find a new Chair to replace Ravindra UAV: Find a Chair!
