Congratulations to Distinguished University Professor John Baras (ECE/ISR), who has been named a Fellow of the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA). The citation reads, "For fundamental and high impact contributions to Internet over satellite technology, cybersecurity, automatic control, model-based systems engineering, and for academic leadership."

AIAA confers the distinction of Fellow upon individuals in recognition of their notable and valuable contributions to the arts, sciences or technology of aeronautics and astronautics. Baras is one of 28 Fellows in AIAA’s Class of 2020.

“The 2020 Class of AIAA Honorary Fellows and Fellows have earned the respect and gratitude of the aerospace community for their dedication, creativity and contribution to better understanding our world in terms of its limits and how we can push past those boundaries,” said John Langford, AIAA president. They are the best minds in the industry. I congratulate them on this career accomplishment.”

Baras is the Lockheed Martin Chair in Systems Engineering for the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering and the Institute for Systems Research. The University of Maryland named him a Distinguished University Professor this year. He is the founding director of ISR and holds many U.S. patents and a software copyright in Internet protocols, networks, wireless networks, security and signal processing. An internationally recognized authority in satellite and wireless networks, Baras led the development of fast Internet over satellite, commercialized by Hughes Network Systems, and created a new industry sector for Internet services over satellite.

Baras is also a fellow of:

Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 1984
