1 Space Environmental Systems Program Committee (SESPC) – A Proposal 6 January 2011 Dr. Paul M. McElroy Director, Structures & Materials Touchstone Research Laboratory, Ltd. Triadelphia, WV

2 2 Agenda Introduction and Background Charter, Scope, and Objectives Why is it a PC and not a TC Ongoing Activity Plan Related AIAA Committees Membership Roster Recommendation

3 3 Background The SAE Space Environmental Systems Committee is transitioning from SAE to AIAA · We are an existing, vibrant committee with very significant ongoing conference efforts (ICES) and community activities · Transition effort has been underway for approximately one year Six months of Telecons with NIS and Thermo Physics TC to try to establish best available means to join AIAA

4 4 What are Space Environmental Systems? Areas of interest relate to humans living and working in hostile environments with applications inside or outside of terrestrial or outer space habitats or vehicles · Aerospace Human Factors · Environmental Control and Life-support System Technology · Environmental Monitoring And Controls · Planetary Protection · EVA System Technology · Life Sciences · Planetary Habitats and Systems · Thermal Control Systems Technology for Both Manned and Unmanned Vehicles

5 5 Proposed Charter - Scope The AIAA Space Environmental Systems Program Committee (AIAA SESPC) will develop, collect, and help disseminate information of value relative to the design, manufacture, maintenance, and testing of environmental/ thermal control systems and components for aircraft, spacecraft, planetary and interplanetary missions

6 6 PC or TC? A great deal of discussion with TAC leadership has gone into the decision to recommend forming SES as a PC Key rationale the PC approach: · As an SAE committee, SPACE ENVIRONMENTAL SYSTEMS focused heavily on the systems/systems integration · Transition of broad multi-national SAE members to AIAA will be more easily facilitated by the PC model Move of SES from SAE to AIAA is unique · SES has a strong motivation to integrate a variety of technical aspects for several TCs Will strongly seek out broad TC participation of relevant participants

7 7 Proposed Charter - Activities Sponsoring or co-sponsoring the yearly International Conference on Environmental Systems (ICES) conference sessions and student poster competitions · 2011 effort includes short course on Space Environment and its Effects on Space Systems The SESPC supports the concept of strategic alignment of ICES with other AIAA conferences and will work with our ICES partners and other appropriate conferences to determine potential arrangements for future conferences that are held in the United States

8 8 Proposed Charter – Activities (cont) Establish liaisons with other technical societies with related interests Ensure an active membership that is representative of the Environmental Systems community Honor technical contributors through nominations for AIAA Fellow, and recommendations for member upgrades Bring together the appropriate technical disciplines represented within various technical committees within AIAA Facilitate the review and publishing of Environmental Systems articles Conduct educational and public policy outreach activities to further promote interest in Environmental Systems science and engineering

9 9 Related AIAA Organizations Groups that Support ICES Conference: American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA) Life Sciences and Systems Technical Committee AIAA Space Architecture Technical Committee American Institute of Chemical Engineers (AIChE) Environmental Systems Committee American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) Crew Systems Technical Committee ICES International Committee (INT) Program Committees: AIAA Gossamer Spacecraft PC Technical Committees: Thermophysics (Great Discussions Held on 5 January!) Atmospheric and Space Environments
