SAT TC in Context The Role of a TC (from AIAA Website) AIAA Technical Committees (TCs) bring together experts in their fields and given them the opportunity to exchange knowledge and get to know their colleagues from around the globe. These committees participate in numerous activities: they develop and administer over 20 technical conferences each year; conduct professional development courses, produce books, and work with K-12 students to promote an interest in engineering education. And that’s just the start. The TCs also honor technical leadership through Technical and Best Paper awards; serve as journal and book reviewers; formulate technology assessment packages for the non-technical public, and even develop and judge college student design contests.

SCI TECH 2014 Update Current CFP Draft The Society and Aerospace Technology Technical Committee examines societal benefits of aerospace technologies as well as the relationship between aerospace and society, culture, and the arts. Abstracts are solicited that address these and related issues. Areas of interest include, but are not limited to: • Aerospace and terrorism • Aerospace and public safety • Astrosociology • Benefits and examples of aerospace technology spin-offs • Utilization of aerospace assets to address social problems • Space medicine and medical astrosociology • Group dynamics and societal institutions in isolated communities (space settlements, Antarctica, etc.) • Discussion of aerospace topics and programs from the perspective of disciplines such as psychology, social psychology, sociology, and anthropology
SAT 2012 Highlights Article • Every year, each TC is apportioned about a page in the December issue of Aerospace America to describe the most important developments and events that have occurred in its technical area over the past year. • Please read and send comments on the draft by 6:00 PM Eastern tomorrow, Sept. 13. • Send comments to SomDutta (email@example.com), and CC Brad Steinfeldt (firstname.lastname@example.org) and JarretLafleur (email@example.com)
Delta Forum Status • August 6 teleconference included representatives from SATTC, HISTC, and SETC • The ETM Group will stand down the Delta Forum for 2013 and 2014. • ETM Group lacks manpower to effectively support the New Event Model (NEM), CASE, and Delta Forum • Possible overlap between the Delta Forum and the larger New Horizons Forum held at ASM and Aviation. • TCs free to organize Delta Forums, but not at expense of NEM or CASE • Ideas for a regular SATTC panel session?
Project Updates • Aerospace Technology Award (Justice) • TC Guidebook (Christian) • ComicCon(Christian) • Aerospace Tech. Pocket Guide and Presentation (Grant, Restrepo)
Action Requests • Winter Newsletter: Send articles to Chris Hearsey (firstname.lastname@example.org) • New Ideas in Need of Volunteers • Creation of an online database of aerospace technology benefits for AIAA members • TC Recruitment Flyer(with logo?) • Teacher Interactions (free AIAA memberships, AIAA grants)
Review of Action Items Note: Next teleconference will be Nov. 15 at 1700 Eastern. Stay tuned for call-in details. Know a student or professional who would make a good addition to our TC? Nomination instructions available at: https://www.aiaa.org/Secondary.aspx?id=5092
