IEEE Press Series on Aeronautics and Astronautics Systems

Aims & Scope

The new IEEE Press Series on Aeronautics and Astronautics Systems will strike a balance between the aeronautics and astronautics subject areas. Aeronautics and astronautics technologies are continuously expanding engineering fields, and in the last few years, the expansion in both aeronautics and astronautics has accelerated with new engineering field applications ranging from unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) to plans for landing humans on Mars. The series will concentrate on all topics where there is presently engineering innovation and where such innovations involve electrical, electronics, and software engineering know-how. Topics for contributions to the series will be solicited from industry practitioners, industry researchers, academic researchers, and other interested parties.

Ray Perez

Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) of the California Institute of Technology

Reinaldo (“Ray”) Perez has been a member of the technical and engineering staff at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) of the California Institute of Technology (Caltech) for 32 years where he has performed many technical and technical management functions in the design and development of complex spacecraft avionics and scientific instruments avionics for 13 distinct spacecrafts bound for interplanetary missions. His main area of concentration has been the implementation of engineering design processes for increasing the reliability of hardware to survive the stresses of the interplanetary space environment during the very long missions. In performing his engineering duties at JPL, he has worked, for many years, with multiple private aerospace companies in the US and internationally, as well as NASA and other international space agencies. He has received 8 NASA technical achievement awards and 2 technical achievement awards from the private aerospace industry.

His research interest includes the electronics design of avionics hardware and sensor systems for long duration space flights in adverse space environments conditions, reliability engineering, electromagnetic compatibility, RF/MW engineering, fault tolerant architectures in avionics, fault protection and management, and software engineering. He has published about 74 papers in peer-reviewed journals and conferences. He has written 4 engineering books and has served as editor and author of 2 engineering handbooks, with all publications still in print. He is a senior member of the IEEE and he has served IEEE in multiple capacities for many years, as member of several of IEEE technical societies and their committees, as a published author, and in multiple leadership positions within the IEEE technical societies and their publications.
