Recent Conference Performance

Accomplishments

  • Organized a very well attended special Invited Session at JPC 2012: The Legacy of Robert Sackheim; will plan on similar session for 2013

  • Organized “History Session” at JPC 2012 with invited panel of distinguished liquid propulsion experts: Hydrogen Propulsion: Centaur-Saturn to J2X and Beyond; session to be taped and archived by CPIA, with DVDs available for sale

  • Organized Liquid Propulsion Short Course at JPC 2011: 26 attendees from U.S. + 6 foreign countries;

  • Unable to sponsor two $1,000 Liquid Propulsion Awards: Student and YP Awards due to short course cancellation

  • Participated in Wyld Award selection committee

  • Selected Best Paper in liquid propulsion from JPC 2011

  • Provided 4 inputs to AIAA’s Congressional Visit Day key issue request: Integrated Space Launch Roadmap, Balance between SLS / MPCV and Commercial Crew programs, Need for ITAR Reform, and Need for Sustained Propulsion R&D

JPC 2012 (as of July 18)

Papers Submitted: 103

Sessions: 23

Issues / Help Needed

  • Not allowed by AIAA to have short course at JPC 2012 despite having worked on restructuring the course (see below)

  • Cost associated with bringing back retired distinguished liquid propulsion experts: no sponsoring organization (if still in existence!)

Initiatives & Plans

  • Continue restructuring/reorganization of liquid propulsion short course to ensure relevance, combination of breadth and depth; investigate online course offerings

  • Initiate activity to encourage STEM participation in propulsion

  • Continue to provide a balanced yearly review of liquid propulsion in Aerospace America

Financial Status

  • Balance as of July 2012: approx. $4,700. Includes:

    • LPTC polo shirts at JPC 2011: ($660)

    • LPTC Awards at JPC 2011 ($2,000) - $0 for 2012

    • Short course: approx $3,600 at JPC 2011 - $0 for 2012!
