ETS-VIII LDR (Photed by JAXA)
This year the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA) celebrates 75 years of supporting the aerospace industry. AIAA is formed of two societies, the American Rocket Society, which started in 1930, and the Institute of the Aeronautical Sciences, which started in 1932. We use the year in between as our celebration year to make it easy. These two societies were very different in the beginning, but the eventually merged together to form AIAA. Here is an excerpt of the story.
The 24th AIAA International Communications Satellite Systems Conference (ICSSC 2006) was held from 11th to 14th June 2006 at San Diego Hilton Resort, California. Theauthor fortunately had a precious opportunity to participate in the conference to make atechnical presentation.
