About the IEEE Aerospace & Electronic Systems Society Newsletter
Engineers today start their careers with excellent technical skills and subject matter. The IEEE Aerospace and Electronic Systems Society (AESS) Newsletter includes time sensitive news useful to its members and highlights content of the current issue of IEEE Aerospace & Electronic Systems Magazine.
IEEE AESS Board of Governors, May 2014
The Aerospace & Electronic Systems Society Board of Governors (BoG) met for their Spring 2014 BoG Meeting in Cincinnati, Ohio. The meeting was held 22-23 May.
The Fall BoG meeting will be held 18-19 September 2014 in St. Louis, Missouri, USA.

New Subscription Option for 2015
Effective with the 2015 IEEE membership year, AESS members will have an option to subscribe to the new AESS Conference Digital Library. The library consists of nearly all AESS conference papers from this year back to the early 1990s. Almost 300 conferences are included. Subscribers will be able to read and download an unlimited numbers of papers using IEEE Xplore.
This is a great opportunity for members to stay abreast of the latest developments for less than the current cost of two individual paper downloads from IEEE Xplore!
Among the 2014 conferences included are: DASC, ICNS, IRS, NAECON, Aerospace, FUSION, PLANS, RadarCon, and AUTOTEST.
Costs for AESS members and Student members are US$20 and US$10 per year, respectively.
Cost for other IEEE members and Student members are US$60 and US$30 per year, respectively.
Look for the option under subscriptions when annual membership renewal invoice is sent.
Contact either Judy Scharmann or George Schmidt, with any questions.

Congratulations to our 2014 Pioneer and Outstanding Organizational Leadership Award Recipients!
Dr. John Hines as the winner of the 2014 Pioneer award “for contributions in the development and deployment of the Very High Speed Integrated Circuits Hardware Description Language (VHDL),” Dr. Hines received his nomination from Dr. Steve Harry.
Professor Ramjee Prasad is our first winner of the Outstanding Organizational Leadership award “for Organizational Leadership in developing and globalizing the CTIF (Center forTeleInFrastruktur) Research Network.” Prof. Prasad was nominated by Marina Ruggieri.
Both awards will be presented at the AUTOTEST Conference Luncheon, Wednesday, 17 September.
AESS Chapter Updates
The Spain Chapter hosted the AESS technically co-sponsored 17th International Conference on Information Fusion in July in Salamanca, Spain. This was this the first time that Spain has been the host country. The proceedings contained 327 papers, with a scientific program covering the different areas that form the fusion of information, including theoretical foundations and representation, developing methodologies, algorithms, modeling, tools and performance analysis. There were 386 researchers registered, representing more than 30 countries. For more information on this conference, visit their Web site.
The first international symposium on Observing the Earth co-hosted by the IEEE Benelux Chapters of AESS and GRSS. The symposium will be held in ESTEC, Noordwijk, NL on 4 November 2014. The colloquium will address the design and development of Earth Observation (EO) satellites and their specific payloads, along with the development and validation of retrieval algorithms allowing to extract geophysical quantities from raw observations. This symposium intends to bring together members of the engineering community involved in the design of state-of-the art remote sensing missions and of the scientific community involved in designing and validating retrieval algorithms. Current developments in Europe, such as the deployment of the Copernicus system will be addressed. The symposium will be organized as a series of plenary talks followed by a poster session. For more information on this symposium, visit their Web site.
The joint IEEE AESS and GRSS Singapore Chapter is hosting the 5th Asia-Pacific Conference on Synthetic Aperture Radar (APSAR 2015) will be held in Singapore 1-4 September 2015. The Asia-Pacific Conference on Synthetic Aperture Radar (APSAR) is an international conference devoted to SAR technology development and applications. APSAR provides an opportunity for SAR and radar engineers/researchers to present the latest R&D outcomes and discuss with colleagues from all over the world, especially the Asia-Pacific region. APSAR covers a wide variety of SAR and radar related topics including SAR system design and concepts, SAR applications, analysis techniques, signal processing, and more. View the APSAR 2015 Call for Papers. If you need more general information on APSAR 2015, visit their Web site.
The IEEE AESS Chapter under IEEE Bangalore Chapter was inaugurated on 17 May 2014 at Golden Jubilee Seminar Hall, IISc Bangalore. The ceremony was conducted by Dr. Nagaraj Shivaramaiah. Dr. Surendra Pal, a Distinguished fellow of IEEE, a Distinguished Scientist and a former Prof Satish Dhawan Prof. & Senior Advisor Satellite Navigation Programme at ISRO; and Prof. A Arrokiaswamy who is an ex-NAL and ADA Scientist with vast experience in flight vehicle design, testing and analysis and currently the HoD of Aeronautical Engineering Department at the Dayanand Sagar College of Engineering, Bangalore.
About 40 professionals and students attended the inauguration ceremony. The Bangalore Chapter would like to thank the IISc ECE Department, especially Dr. T Srinivas and his students and staff for providing the logistics for the inauguration, the IEEE Bangalore Section and ExCom.
