Georgia Tech AE students have been awarded five 2012 Vertical Flight Foundation Scholarship. The awardees are : Natasha Barbely (Ahuja) Dan Prosser (Smith) Nicolas Reveles (Smith) Robert Scott (Schrage) Sumant Sharma (Komerath) The AgustaWestland International Helicopter Fellowship Award recognizes the most significant contribution to international vertical flight cooperation by an individual or group. Established in 1989, the award honors the memory of Paolo Bellavita, whose career at Gruppo Agusta was marked by his dedication to furthering international cooperation in the world of vertical flight. This year’s winner is the HART II International Workshop Team. Team members include Berend van der Wall, DLR; Joon Limm, U.S. Army, AFDD; Prof. Marilyn Smith, Georgia Institute of Technology, and Jean Prieur, ONERA (Ret.) The Team opened up data on higher harmonic control of rotors to a large community, encouraging analysis. The analysis was a world wide effort leading to numerous achievements such as validation of solvers and a deep understanding of BVI mechanisms and their impact on rotor noise and vibrations. Congratulations to all!
