Aerodynamic Measurement Technology Award Open for Nominations 1 July 2020 – 1 October 2020
The Aerodynamic Measurement Technology Award was approved by Board of Directors in 1995 and is presented for continued contributions and achievements toward the advancement of advanced aerodynamics flowfield and surface measurement techniques for research in flight and ground test applications. Formerly presented in even-numbered years, beginning in 2017, this award is presented biennially (in odd-numbered years) generally at the AIAA Aviation and Aeronautics Forum and Exposition.
