F-35 Program Receives Major Award for 'Cutting-Edge Design'

AIAA Calls JSF Technology "Revolutionary"

The American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA)has recognized Lockheed Martin's F-35 Lightning II program for its "cutting-edge design and technology."

The AIAA Foundation Board of Trustees presented the AIAA Foundation Award for Excellence to the F-35 program during the 2010 AIAA Aerospace Spotlight Awards Gala on May 12 in Washington, D.C. AIAA is the world's largest technical society dedicated to the global aerospace profession. "This award reflects the dedication and innovation of those who have made the F-35 Lightning II fighter a reality and signifies a bright future as the program ramps up flight test and commences operational training in the months ahead," said U.S. Air Force Major General C.D. Moore, the acting program executive officer for the F-35 Lightning II Program Office.

According to the award citation, the Foundation Award for Excellence recognizes the "cutting-edge design and technology of - and global collaboration involved in - the Joint Strike Fighter, enabling a unique battlespace capability for the future." The AIAA Foundation Board of Trustees annually recognizes unique contributions and extraordinary accomplishments by organizations or individuals in aeronautics and astronautics. "This award acknowledges the commitment of the F-35 team, and the revolutionary technology that make the F-35 the fighter of the future," said Tom Burbage, Lockheed Martin executive vice president and general manager of F-35 Program Integration.
