The Pendray Aerospace Literature Award is named in honor of Dr. G. Edward Pendray, a founder and past president of the American Rocket Society. The award is presented for an outstanding contribution or contributions to aeronautical and astronautical literature in the relatively recent past. The emphasis should be upon the high quality or major influence of the piece rather than, for example, the importance of the underlying technological contribution. The award is an incentive for aerospace professionals to write eloquently and persuasively about their field and should encompass editorials as well as papers or books.
The 2011 Award was given to William F. Milliken
For his seven decades of outstanding technical accomplishments and unparalleled leadership in the field of vehicle dynamics, and for his inspiring autobiography for future generations.
The Summerfield Book Award is named in honor of Dr. Martin Summerfield, founder and initial editor of the Progress in Astronautics and Aeronautics series of books published by the AIAA. The award is presented to the author(s) of the best book recently published by the AIAA.
The 2011 Award was given to Bradford Parkinson, Stanford UniversityJames Spilker, Stanford TelecomPeninaAxelrad, University of Colorado, Boulder, and Per Enge, Stanford University, editors of

Highlights from TAC 2010 Summer Meeting and Winter TAC Exec Conference Calls
Greener Aviation & Alternative Fuels named top two emerging technologies for AIAA involvement.
Individual facets of green technologies represented sporadically in the technical committees, but there is no central focus & systems thinking approach.
A PC, with its inherent systems point of view, flexibility of approach, and access to a wide range of expertise, offers AIAA such a focus that would broadly benefit the membership.
Other professional organizations are ramping up their involvement in “green” activities. AIAA needs a clearly defined focal point & should work to become a leader in this growing domain.
The Green Engineering PC…Why Now?
The purpose of the Green Engineering Program Committee (GEPC) is to promote a holistic, systems approach to improved energy efficiency, sustainability, renewable energy and ‘cradle-to-cradle’ design. GEPC serves as the AIAA focal point for all “green” aerospace-related programs and technologies, and works synergistically with the appropriate technical committees to assure that the AIAA membership is adequately informed about all aspects of this critical aerospace activity.
