AIAA Social Media Policy11/2/2016 8:32 AM
by Betty GuillieNo presence information
AIAA has a Social Media Policy! Many committees (along with regions, sections and branches) have "unofficial"-official AIAA pages on Facebook, Twitter, etc. The policy isn't meant to be a set of rules that would constrain activity on those pages; it just outlines what the Institute would consider to be inappropriate content for an AIAA-branded page and explains what to do in the case of a hack or account compromise. To access the Social Media Policy, please click on this link:

The scope of the Astrodynamics Technical Committee includes determination, prediction, physical adjustment, and optimization of trajectories in space; space navigation and mission analysis; perturbation theories and expansions; spacecraft attitude dynamics and estimation.

The Astrodynamics Technical Committee works in close cooperation with the Space Flight Mechanics Commitee of the American Astronautical Society. Jointly, these committees host two conferences annually: the Space Flight Mechanics Meeting (SFM) and the Astrodynamics Specialist Conference (ASC). A wiki page for members is available here.

This committee is looking for prospective members in the following disciplines: space trajectory design, prediction, estimation, correction, optimization, computation and analysis; celestial mechanics, space navigation, optimal filtering and orbit determination; re-entry trajectories, and spacecraft attitude dynamics.
