13 February 2014Atmospheric Flight Mechanics TC10 K-12 Working Group Susana Muñoz
13 February 2014Atmospheric Flight Mechanics TC11 Most Influential Paper Idea This was proposed by John Valasek Find the most influential paper from past years Make a special presentation to the author at a future conference There seemed to be a lot of interest at the start No one has stepped up to lead the effort Should we pursue it or drop it?
13 February 2014Atmospheric Flight Mechanics TC12 Request from Applied Aerodynamics TC Applied Aerodynamics (APA) TC has interests closely related to ours APA has met with AFM/GNC in the summer every fourth year They have voted to stop meeting with us Jim Keenan, APA TC Chair, contacted me to invite us to Meet with APA every fourth year Co-locate with Fluids, Thermophysics, etc., not with GNC (and now MST) Meet in June instead of August those years We voted NO (by email) early this year
13 February 2014Atmospheric Flight Mechanics TC13 Liaison Reports
13 February 2014Atmospheric Flight Mechanics TC14 New Business How Do We Make the AFM TC Thrive? Were at a Comfortable Membership Level (34) Were Due to Lose Half our Members in 2009 Supposed to be a 3-year (maximum) commitment Several members with less than 3 years have not been renewed We Need to Replace Subcommittee Chairs Tonight and in January There are a Couple of Options for this TC
13 February 2014Atmospheric Flight Mechanics TC15 New Business TC Member Emeritus This is an idea that is being pursued by other TCs Not an official position recognized within AIAA Establish active outgoing members as Emeritus members Invited to attend TC meetings No voting rights or positions as subcommittee chairs Encouraged to help with regular subcommittee tasks What do you think?
13 February 2014Atmospheric Flight Mechanics TC16 New Business A Four-Year Commitment? Commitment to the TC is for three years Actually, its for one year There are up to two years options based on participation We hold two meetings a year, some TCs hold three We could extend commitment to four years This would not be an official AIAA stance! We would notify applicants when they are accepted They would not be required to remain for the fourth year
13 February 2014Atmospheric Flight Mechanics TC17 New Business Technical Session Co-Chair Options Currently, we designate two co-chairs for all technical sessions Provides back-up May provide a reason for a non-TC member to attend a conference Is this working? Should we make an effort to go outside the TC for co- chairs?
13 February 2014Atmospheric Flight Mechanics TC18 New Business Ideas for Invited and Special Sessions Not really new business… There were lots of good ideas back in January PLEASE provide your ideas to the Chairs of the Technical Subcommittees by tonight Subcommittee Chairs, PLEASE forward those ideas to Ag, Bandu, or Atilla Invited and special sessions are always a big hit

13 February 2014Atmospheric Flight Mechanics TC35 Mechanics & Control of Flight Award 2008 Award: The Mechanics and Control of Flight Award is presented for outstanding recent technical or scientific contributions by an individual in the mechanics, guidance, or control of flight in space or the atmosphere. Selection Committee: Two each from Atmospheric Flight Mechanics (AFM) Guidance, Navigation, & Control (GNC) Astrodynamics (ASD)
13 February 2014Atmospheric Flight Mechanics TC36 Criteria Current significance & importance of contribution(s) Long term significance & importance of contribution(s)/applicability to the GNC/AFM/ASD field Recognition Nominees involvement in technical achievements Quality & strength of nomination package and supporting recommendation letters AIAA Service
13 February 2014Atmospheric Flight Mechanics TC37 Nominees John Cochran, Auburn University Mikhail Goman, De Montfort Univ, UK Vladislav Klein, GWU/NASA LaRC Eugene Lavretsky, The Boeing Company Ping Lu, Iowa State University Jubaraj Sahu, US Army RL/Aberdeen
13 February 2014Atmospheric Flight Mechanics TC38 And the Winner Is … Ping Lu Citation: For contributions in advanced guidance algorithms for entry and ascent flight. Specifically, Prof. Lu is an internationally recognized leading researcher in advanced entry guidance for reusable launch vehicles and spacecraft and ascent guidance of launch vehicles. An on-board trajectory planning and guidance algorithm devised by Prof. Lu was selected by NASA Marshall as the winner of a Reusable Launch Vehicle Guidance and Control competition. It had performance that far exceeded that of the Shuttle guidance algorithm, and handled a much larger number of severely off-nominal test scenarios. Prof. Lu's work on advanced entry guidance and ascent guidance, published mostly in AIAA journals and conferences, is among the most commonly cited references of recent years in these fields.
