More recently, he has worked with an academic partner to generate 3-D images of turbulent flames using species-specific luminescence. These volumetric images reveal the convoluted heat release surface of highly dynamic flames.
“Cam is an internationally recognized expert in advanced diagnostics and has made lasting contributions to high speed air breathing propulsion technology development. He is highly respected throughout the technical community, as evident by this prestigious award,” said Robert A. Mercier, chief engineer at the High Speed Systems Division.
The presentation was made July 12 at the AIAA Propulsion and Energy Forum in Atlanta. AIAA is the world’s largest technical society dedicated to the global aerospace profession.
The Air Breathing Propulsion Award is presented annually to an individual for sustained, meritorious accomplishment in the arts, science and technology of air breathing propulsion systems.
