AWARDS
Dr. Heinz Erzberger receives AIAA 2014 Intelligent Systems Award
October 21, 2013

The American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA) presented their 2014 Intelligent Systems Award to Dr. Heinz Erzberger. The award recognizes important fundamental contributions to intelligent systems technologies and applications that advance the capabilities of aerospace systems. The award citation reads, “For pioneering research in developing intelligent systems that increase the efficiency and safety of aircraft and air traffic control operations.” Dr. Erzberger will formally receive the award at the upcoming January 2014 AIAA Science and Technology Forum and Exposition (SciTech2014), in National Harbor, Maryland. Dr. Erzberger developed the basic algorithms for four-dimensional guidance and for fuel-optimum flight management that serve as the foundations for the Center-TRACON Automation System (CTAS) and the ensuing air traffic management (ATM) research and development accomplishments of the Aviation Systems Division. Dr. Erzberger holds two patents in the design of air traffic automation tools, is a Fellow of the AIAA and a Fellow of NASA Ames Research Center and was inducted into the Ames Hall of Fame in 2008. He was elected to the National Academy of Engineering of the United States in 2010. After retiring from NASA in February 2006, Dr. Erzberger became an Adjunct Professor at the University of California, Santa Cruz and at Stanford University. In early 2010, he returned to NASA Ames as an Intergovernmental Personnel Act (IPA) transferee from UCSC, and in addition to conducting ATM research on advanced concepts, serves as Senior Advisor in the Aviation Systems Division.
