 GTTC Background

The Ground Testing Technical Committee (GTTC) is a technical committee formed through the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics AIAA to carry out those objectives of the AIAA pertaining to ground testing. Ground testing includes, but is not limited to, the duplication and simulation of aerodynamic and aerospace flight environments, and the testing of aerospace systems, subsystems and components in ground based testing facilities such as wind tunnels and shock tunnels, ballistic ranges, space environmental facilities, and engine and rocket test facilities. The GTTC membership consists of professional volunteers from Industry, Government, and Academia organized into subcommittees, Task Subcommittees and Working Groups.

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:
