Tim Crain Ph.D. Joins AAS RMS 2021 Board of Directors

The Rocky Mountain Section of the American Astronautical Society (AAS) voted Intuitive Machines’ Vice President of Research and Development, Tim Crain Ph.D. onto its board of directors.

“This organization has been a huge part of my career path and I’m excited to give back to help the next generation of engineers as part of the Rocky Mountain Section’s Board of Directors,” said Crain.

Crain first participated in the AAS Rocky Mountain Section’s Guidance, Navigation, and Control (GN&C) Conference in 1999 as a graduate student with a paper on trajectory optimization. Over the last 20 years, the Intuitive Machines VP and Co-Founder has served as national chair for many sessions in the AAS GN&C Conference and as a member of the planning committee.

“The AAS Rocky Mountain Section serves a critical role in a region important to both Intuitive Machines and the larger aerospace community in terms of talent and innovation,” said Crain. “Events, such as the annual GN&C conference in Breckenridge, provide an excellent environment for aerospace engineering practitioners from the Rocky Mountain region and around the world to present recent results and cross-pollinate ideas.”
