    Participate in (at least) two other activities per year, many listed below:

    These activities vary in effort and difficulty; members with more seniority should take on more difficult roles

  • My hopes for TC meetings

    TC meetings with short reports on progress of various subcommittees

    Much of the work done by subcommittees outside TC meetings

    More time for networking with colleagues

    More time for technical discussions / presentations

    No more than two hours

    Hopefully, including this meeting

    Nine joint ATIO / MAO sessions many aircraft design related

    Tim Takahashi helped with this

    Large number of aircraft design sessions

    One last minute cancellation; few no shows

    New hard deadline seems to improve last minute changes

  • Conferences

    ASM 2013 Held at Gaylord Resort in Grapevine, TX (just north of DFW airport)

    Possible opportunity to re-start CADWG here (will be mentioned later)

  • Conferences

    Aviation 2013 Hyatt Regency Century Plaza, Los Angeles, CA; August 12-14, 2013.

    Abstract central to start accepting abstracts Oct 1

    Not sure of abstract due dates yet

    An intermediate step on the way to the New Event Model

    ATIO will be a part of the technical conferences co-located here (International Powered Lift also co-located)

    Jim Vasatka from Boeing will be general or executive chair Working on recruiting high-level panelists and speakers

    Four branches Commercial, Military, Other (GA, biz, UAS, rotorcraft), Technical activities (ATIO, CASE, IPLC)

    Our role will be to support the ATIO portion of the event, and to help support conference as usual

    This is Aircraft Design TCs major conference

    Will need representatives on planning committee soon

    Dave Maroney (deputy director for Aircraft and Atmospheric Systems) charged with helping the technical integration

  • Conferences

    SCI TECH 2014

    First event using the New Event Model Will encompass previous ASM, eventually also SDM,

    possibly GNC and MAO (Neal Pfeiffer will have more details)

    Action items for TC Need to submit topic area chair(s) and updated call for

    papers to KC Niedermeyr at AIAA by October 2

    Gil Crouse has been our ASM topic area chair; I would like to have two (hopefully, Gil + one other)

  • Committee Feedback for New Event Model (April 30, 2012)

    Historically, the aircraft design TC has supported the events that would become part of the Aviation and Aeronautics and the Science and Technology events; hence, our desire to play leading roles as organizers in those events.

    Our committee expresses interest in the Defense and Security and the Propulsion and Energy events, but there was no clear consensus on what our role should be. The incoming chair and vice-chair decided to assign S at the discipline levels here, because this is our best guess of how our TCs resources would be best used in the new event model.

    We are willing to help out as needed and as available in broader roles in the other events.

  • Aerospace America Year in Review

    Aircraft Design article draft has been completed.

    Highlights include NASA ERA, Subsonic Fixed Wing developments, Boeing SUGAR, Flying Car, VTOL studies, Electric aircraft (Solar Impulse, Pipistrel's Panthera etc.), BAMS, Phantom Eye and X-47B UAV's, F-35, Commercial and business jet aircraft

    Draft and images submitted to AA editor

    Final draft, to be approved by TC (historically, this has been the officers), will be re-submitted to editor again this week

  • Aerospace America Year in Review

    From AIAA TC Chair Manual: an article summarizing the accomplishments and setbacks of their

    technical specialty during the calendar year. The analytical twist and incisive style of each piece must show that the authors are the professions foremost experts telling it like it was good, bad, and why.

    these articles are to reflect this years activity in a particular discipline. They are NOT reports on committee activities or prognostications of future events.

    Do we do this in our articles now? We tend to highlight aircraft with first flights; have recently started adding

    points about NASA design studies

    For 2012 article, no TC members sent ideas to Dyna or Charley

    For 2013, add a few additional members to this team; have entire TC submit item
