Commercial Supersonic Technology: The Way Ahead
Advisory Board and the ASEB and has served on at least 10 NRC study committees. He is a member of the New York Academy of Science, a fellow of the Royal Aeronautical Society, and an honorary fellow of the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA).
DONALD M. DIX has expertise in propulsion systems. Dr. Dix retired from the Department of Defense (DoD) in May 1999 and is currently a consultant to government and industry. His last assignment with the DoD was as director for special programs within the Office of the Director of Defense Research and Engineering. Dr. Dix is a propulsion expert with broad experience formulating guidance and over-seeing science and technology efforts for air platforms, space platforms, ground and sea vehicles, and materials and structures. He is also co-chair of the Independent Review Group that is supporting the Quiet Supersonic Platform Project and other work by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) to develop supersonic aircraft technologies. Dr. Dix has served on two NRC committees.
WILLARD DODDS has expertise in propulsion emissions technology and regulations. He is the senior staff engineer for emissions, regulations, and strategy at GE Aircraft Engines, one of two U.S. manufacturers of large jet engines. He is an expert in all aspects of aircraft engine combustion system design and development, including the design and development of low-emission combustion systems. As such, he has an expert knowledge of engine emissions abatement technology and relevant regulatory considerations. For the past several years, he has been the GE Aircraft Engines representative on various industry committees that interact with the International Civil Aviation Organization on engine emissions regulatory issues.
ILAN KROO has expertise in aircraft systems integration. Dr. Kroo is a professor of aeronautics and astronautics at Stanford University, where he conducts research in applied aerodynamics, aircraft design, and multidisciplinary optimization. Dr. Kroo has served as a member of one other NRC committee and for the last 6 years has been involved with DARPA’s high-altitude, long-endurance aircraft programs. Dr. Kroo also has several years’ experience with NASA Ames Research Center as a research scientist analyzing new aircraft concepts.
DOMENIC J. MAGLIERI has expertise in propulsion noise and sonic booms. He began his career at NASA (then NACA) Langley Research Center. He served as head of the Noise Control Branch of the Acoustics and Noise Reduction Division, responsible for developing technology for understanding, predicting, and applying solutions relative to noise generation, propagation, prediction, and reduction. Mr. Maglieri, who retired from NASA in 1986, works as a consultant for Eagle Aeronautics, Inc., where he is the lead engineer on all noise and sonic boom work for aircraft and space vehicles. He has almost 50 years of experience in airplane and helicopter noise, subsonic and supersonic transport technology, and sonic boom. He is considered a leading national and international expert on sonic booms. His sonic boom flight test involvement began in 1957 and has continued throughout four decades. Mr. Maglieri has participated in every major sonic boom flight test program involving 20 different aircraft, Apollo spacecraft, and the space shuttle. He has authored or coauthored over 150 publications, 95 of which pertain to sonic booms.
MATTHEW MILLER has expertise in airframe service life. As an employee of the British Aircraft Corporation, Dr. Miller worked on development of the Concorde supersonic transport, focusing on damage tolerance certification. Since joining Boeing in 1979, he has worked on the development and application of damage tolerance methods for all Boeing commercial aircraft products. He served as the structures manager of Boeing’s high-speed civil transport program until that effort was cancelled in 1999. Dr. Miller is currently manager of Boeing’s Structural Damage Technology organization.
DORA E. MUSIELAK has expertise in propulsion emissions and combustion. Dr. Musielak is currently engaged in studies of high-speed reacting flows—investigating injection, mixing, and ignition processes—as a member of the faculty of the Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering Department of the University of Texas at Arlington. Dr. Musielak has research, academic, and industry experience in aero and space propulsion, hypersonics, combustion, fuel injection and atomization for gas turbines, pulse detonation engines, magnetohydrodynamics, and development of space systems. Dr. Musielak conducted some of this research for Allison Gas Turbine, Solar Turbines, and the University of Tennessee Space Institute. Dr. Musielak is the recipient of two NASA research fellowships.
DAVID K. SCHMIDT has expertise in aircraft dynamics, stability, and control. He is a professor of mechanical and aerospace engineering, Director of the Flight Dynamics and Control Laboratory, and Dean of the Graduate School at the University of Colorado, Colorado Springs. Dr. Schmidt is also past chairman of AIAA’s technical committee on guidance, navigation, and control and a past associate editor of the Journal of Guidance, Control, and Dynamics. Dr. Schmidt has served on one other NRC committee (the Committee on High Speed Research) and the U.S. Air Force Scientific Advisory Board’s Review Panel for Science and Technology. He is a fellow of the AIAA.
MICHAEL WINSLOW has expertise in piloting and flight deck technologies. Mr. Winslow is an account team leader for Honeywell Defense & Space, with the responsibility for
