Hello Fellow Aerospace Professionals!!!!
Hello, my name is Bryan Hayes and it will be my pleasure to work with all of you over the next two years as the Director of the Aerospace Industries Division of ISA. I would like to take a moment to thank outgoing Aerospace Industries Division Director, Dennis Coad (2010-2012) for his outstanding work, leadership, and strong contributions to our division. Although he is the past Division Director, Dennis will still serve in many capacities for ISA, including the 59th International Instrumentation Symposium (IIS) as a subject matter expert.
I work for Aerospace Testing Alliance which is the prime contractor for the United States Air Force at the Arnold Engineering Development Complex (AEDC) located at Arnold AFB, TN. My background is in Electrical Engineering with an emphasis in aerospace and specifically turbine engine instrumentation and testing. I have been involved with Tip Timing technology and application development for close to 14 years. With the encouragement of Bill Stange, I initially became involved with ISA by starting a Tip Timing Workshop that was held during the 56th IIS. The 59th IIS will be the 4th installment of the Tip Timing Workshop. I was the Technical Program Chair for the 58th IIS and will be serving as the Deputy Technical Program Chair to the 59th IIS Technical Program Chair Aubri Hanson. Aubri and I are both looking forward to a remarkable 59th IIS in 2013!
The Aerospace Industries Division is a technical interest group that serves professionals involved with ground testing, flight testing, control of airplanes, missiles, and space vehicles, and their related measurements. Our division also provides technical content, volunteer organization, and support to ISA’s longest running symposium, the IIS. The 59th IIS will be held during May 13-17, 2013 in Cleveland, Ohio and will mark the first time that ISA has collaborated with the Society for Machinery Failure Prevention Technology (MFPT). The technical content of the 59th IIS should be top notch with paper sessions involving instrumentation, turbine test technology, data systems, process measurement and control, student papers, and many more technical sessions. Please go to www.isa.org/iis to register. Please make plans to attend to gain knowledge in different technical sessions and to network with your fellow professionals!
The planning for the 60th IIS has already started and we are still hoping to have the IIS in Europe in 2014. I will let you know more as details and logistics are worked out by the General Chair Steve Allison and the planning committee. If you would like to be a part of the planning committee please contact me. Please make plans to attend the 60th IIS as it will be the first ever IIS held outside of the United States!
I encourage you to get involved with the Aerospace Industries Division in 2013! Being part of the Aerospace Industries Division allows you to network with peers and meet other professionals that speak your language and care about the technical topics in which you are concerned. Our division also allows you to demonstrate your strengths, write and review technical papers and presentations, as well as gives you an opportunity for technical reading on your own website at www.isa.org/divisions/asd.
If you are interested in volunteering or becoming a presenter, reviewer, or published author, for the 59th IIS please contact me at the information shown below.
