ASRC Aerospace Employee Named AIAA Associate Fellow
Greenbelt, Md., Jan. 9, 2012 – ASRC Aerospace employee Paul Douglas has been elected an Associate Fellow of the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics. Douglas will be inducted as an Associate Fellow at the 50th AIAA Aerospace Sciences Meeting today in Nashville, Tenn.
AIAA members distinguished as Associate Fellows have accomplished or been in charge of important engineering or scientific work, done original work of outstanding merit or otherwise made outstanding contributions to the arts, sciences or technology of aeronautics or astronautics. Only 2 percent of the AIAA’s 35,000-plus members are elected as Associate Fellows each year.
“I’m honored to be recognized by my peers across the industry for leadership in astronautics,” said Douglas, an ASRC Aerospace radiometric engineer supporting the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s Engineering Mission Operations Support Services, or EMOSS-3, contract.
Douglas founded The Journal of Space Operations & Communicator, a publication of the AIAA’s Space Operations and Support Technical Committee and the only peer-reviewed technical journal for space operations. He served as a member of the technical committee from 2003 to 2011 and will chair the committee, beginning in May.
Douglas has a bachelor’s degree in space science from Florida Institute of Technology.
