Award for Technical Excellence in Aerospace Control
The award will be given annually to a person or team of people that performed an aerospace control engineering activity during the previous 36 months that demonstrates excellence and significant results with demonstrated impact. Examples of results evidence are either a paper appearing in an IEEE publication that specifically addresses aerospace controls issues, or a patent application or award that significantly advances the state-of-the-art in aerospace controls. Innovative products that have appeared on the marketplace will also be considered. The award is similar to the outstanding paper awards for the CSS transactions and magazine in the sense that it recognizes an outstanding paper or patented idea as opposed to cumulative contributions over a career.
