Pendray Aerospace Literature Award
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. This annual award is generally presented at the AIAA Science and Technology (SCITECH) Forum.
