Living in the Future
December 15, 2013 Lunch Meeting
Distinguished Guest Speaker: Daniel P. Raymer
Noted designer and author Dan Raymer will cover his early involvement in the projects that became the X-31, B-2, F-22, T-45, F-35, and more. Raymer will describe how and why these projects began, and how he became involved in them. Then he'll show his original baseline design concepts and explain how they were created, what was learned from them, and what happened in the end. This enjoyable talk has been presented numerous times at the EAA AirVenture (Oshkosh) and at several universities. It is fast-paced and funny, and gives an insider's look at the development of a new aircraft concept. The numerous illustrations include original design layouts and rarely-seen artist's concepts.
Dr. Raymer is President of Conceptual Research Corporation, and conducts design studies for NASA, AFRL, DARPA, Composite Engineering Inc., and others. Previous positions include Director-Advanced Design with Lockheed, Director-Future Missions at the Aerojet Propulsion Research Institute, and Project Manager-Engineering at Rockwell North American Aviation. Raymer is the author of "Aircraft Design: A Conceptual Approach", "Simplified Aircraft Design for Homebuilders", and "Living in the Future: The Education and Adventures of an Advanced Aircraft Designer" from which this presentation was derived. He regularly teaches his Aircraft, UAV, and Spacecraft Conceptual Design Short Courses. He also coded the RDSwin aircraft design software (Student and Professional versions).
Dr. Raymer received B.S. and M.S. engineering degrees in Astronautics and Aeronautics from Purdue, an MBA from the University of Southern California, and a Doctorate of Engineering (Ph.D.) from the Swedish Royal Institute of Technology (KTH) in the field of Aircraft Multidisciplinary Design Optimization.
It is with great sadness, that the AIAA sees the closing of the Proud Bird Restaurant. Many AIAA events have happened at the Proud Bird including the record breaking JPL Curiosity Rover mission. It is only fitting that our last meeting of the 2013 year be at the iconic restaurant before it shuts its doors. The Proud Bird has served the Los Angeles area for over 48 years and we appreciate its service. It is even more fitting that out last event of the 2013 year is Dr. Raymer the author of Aircraft Design and innovative thinking in the world of aircraft design.
