Your Orange County Section is pleased to announce its inaugural Lunch and Learn lecture to be presented on August 17th at noon by Eugene L. Fleeman. This 1-hour presentation will address the fundamentals of missile design, development, and system engineering. It is oriented toward AIAA luncheon and dinner meetings. Included is a discussion of the broad range of alternatives in satisfying missile cost, performance, and risk requirements. The methods presented are generally simple closed-form analytical expressions that are physics-based, to provide conceptual design insight into the conceptual design primary driving parameters. Typical values of missile parameters and the characteristics of current operational missiles are discussed, as well as the enabling subsystems and technologies for missiles and the current/projected state-of-the-art. Videos will illustrate missile development activities and performance.
Mr. Fleeman has 50+ years of government, industry, academic, and consulting experience in the design, development, and system engineering of missile systems. Formerly a manager of missile programs at the US Air Force Research Laboratory, Rockwell International, Boeing, and Georgia Tech, he is an international lecturer on missiles and the author of 200+ publications, including the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA) textbook Missile Design and System Engineering. His textbooks and short courses on Missile Design, Development, and System Engineering emphasize physics-based prediction methods, for enhanced insight, speed, and accuracy of the conceptual design process. He has held over 100 short courses in fifteen countries and five continents.
Mr. Fleeman is an AIAA Associate Fellow, an AIAA Distinguished Speaker, an AIAA short course instructor, and a former chair of the AIAA Missile Systems Technical Committee.
The presentation will be on Wednesday, August 17th, 2022 from 12:00 PM to 1:00 PM PDT via Zoom. The Zoom link for the meeting is attached to this announcement.
