A Message from the AESS President


I’m very honoured to have been elected President of IEEE AESS for 2018-2019. To better serve our members and the wider AESS community, the Society has matured several new initiatives over the last two years, such as the new AESS Resource Centre, new international Chapters, forming the Navigation Systems technical panel and growing the AESS Professional Networking and Mentoring Program. The AESS has a worldwide scope: we aim to be relevant to people in all countries, and we seek to establish new AES chapters in new countries.

The future of the Society is inspired by its core purpose to best serve the most valued requirements of the AESS community. Member feedback has highlighted several areas where the AESS can move from “good to great”. Our strategic plan includes new initiatives to expand and strengthen relations with Industry, where we have the largest percentage of members than in any other IEEE Society. It also places emphasis on new initiatives to attract and retain younger members, reinvigorating chapter activities, and offering targeted education and training opportunities to fulfil the professional development needs of the AESS community.

As we continue to improve existing services, we will deliver new offerings that provide greater advantages to members in the areas of publications, chapter activities, conferences, industry relations, education, technical operations and others. The cornerstone themes of our strategic planning are to be more innovative and collaborative and to deliver valued outcomes to the AESS community through deeper member engagement in a more connected Society, and you should start to see the results of this plan over the coming months.  

The AESS Board is responsive to member input and we would be pleased to know the professional development or other activities that would be most valued by the AESS community in your area at this time. Expanding the membership of AESS is an aspiration that we can share, so please do your part in spreading the message and recruiting new members.

It is a privilege for me to serve as your President. I look forward to meeting as many of you as possible in person.

With thanks and best wishes,

Joe Fabrizio
AESS President

AESS Mission and Vision

The mission of the AESS is to provide a responsive and relevant professional society that attracts, engages, aids, and retains a diverse set of members (age, culture, community – theoretical, managerial and applications) worldwide in the areas of our fields of interest as defined in our constitution. AESS will accomplish this through technical, chapter and society activities in the areas of conferences, publications, education, technical operations, industry relations, and member services.

The vision of the AESS is to be essential to the worldwide technical community and be recognized for outstanding contributions in the fields of aerospace and electronic systems as demonstrated through the Society’s products, service and offerings in the areas of conferences, publications, education, technical operations, industry relations, and member services.

The IEEE Aerospace and Electronic Systems Society (AESS) provides a global professional home for engineers working in the electronic systems domain.

The Society offers a unique opportunity to become deeply connected with the three pillars of the Aerospace, Electronic and Defence sector: Industry, Institutions and Research Centers. Effective interaction between those pillars is the key element for the organization, design, development and operation of successful Complex Systems, which are the core of the AESS Field of Interest.

AESS Complex Systems cover the space, air, ocean and ground environments, including hardware, software, integration and many other aspects of the Engineering job.

AESS Conferences, Workshops, Transactions, Magazine and Educational tools enhance and disseminate the culture of Complex Systems through the global AESS community, bringing to a large and beneficial exchange of experience and achievements among our members.
