 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.
