JSASS AWARDS of 2015

The JSASS Awards consist of Best Paper Award, Technology Award, and Young Researcher Award for members under 35 years old. JSASS provided nomination guidelines in the June 2015 issue of Aeronautical and Space Sciences Japan and on the JSASS website, and nominations received by 20 August 2015 were reviewed strictly and carefully by each award selection committee. The committees recommended two recipients for Best Paper Award, two recipients for Technology Award [one for Basic Technology Category and one for Project Category], and three recipients for Young Researcher Award. The committee recommendations were submitted to the JSASS Board of Directors and endorsed at the 513th Board of Directors Meeting on 18 December 2015. The JSASS would like to announce all of our members this year's awards recipients. Also, these awards will be presented with an extra prize at the JSASS Annual General Meeting to be held in April 2016. The details of the review will be provided in the May 2016 issue of Aeronautical and Space Sciences Japan.
