NAA Calling For Groundbreakers, Innovators, and Game Changers

National Aeronautic Association Opens Collier Nominations

The NAA is now accepting nominations for their Robert J. Collier Trophy, an interesting award meant to bring attention to the real world, effective aeronautical advancements made over the preceding year.

The trophy will be presented in June at a formal NAA dinner celebrating the event. Recent winners include the Boeing X-37B team, the inventors of the F-35’s auto GCS team, Blue Origin’s New Shepard, and NASA’s JPL.

The association describes their criteria by saying "The Robert J. Collier Trophy is awarded annually, for the greatest achievement in aeronautics or astronautics in America, with respect to improving the performance, efficiency, and safety of air or space vehicles, the value of which has been thoroughly demonstrated by actual use during the preceding year.

In order to nominate an individual, entity, or company, they must have been engaged in the "development and manufacturing of aerospace products in the USA."

The nomination is due by January 31st, 2022 and must include all necessary packet materials, including the Collier abstract form, letters of support, and a justification for selection.

A brief (3 page max) outline concisely addressing the nominee's merit for the Collier award should address how that achievement relates to the preceding year and any background information pertinent and relevant in assisting the selection committee in their decision making process. The packet should also include a proposed citation in 30 words or less "which captures the essence of the achievement". Attachments, reprints of articles, and other ephemera will not be accepted in lieu of submission materials.
