George Studor, Consultant at Analytical Mechanics Associates, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Engineers for dedication, achievements, and leadership in aerospace science.
With more than 35 years of professional experience, Mr. Studor has been a consultant with analytical Mechanics Associates since 2013, also holding the same position with Jacobs Engineering from 2013 to 2016. In 2013, he retired from the National Aeronautics and Space Administration, having held numerous positions with the organizations throughout his career, including aerospace engineer, affiliate, assistant to the chief technologist, senior project engineer, detailee, associate adjunct professor, civil servant, and manager.
Mr. Studor began his career as a student at the United States Air Force Academy, obtaining a Bachelor of Science in astronautical engineering in 1976. He then joined the Air Force Institute of Technology at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, earning a Master of Science in astronautical engineering in 1982. In choosing his college major, Mr. Studor wanted something that would challenge him, and aerospace engineering not only was challenging, but was incredibly intriguing. Mr. Studor is certified as a senior pilot with United State Air Force Aeronautical Rating. One of the highlights of Mr. Studor’s career involves the use of “fly by wireless.” He was in charge of the recovery plans after the Space Shuttle Challenger accident, and every morning, he met with teams to figure out when flights could begin again. Mr. Studor developed the shuttle scheduling system. Each month, he would report on the status return to flight to all the NASA set of directors across the agency. The shuttle program manager moved to be in charge of the International Space Station Freedom and asked Mr. Studor to come to NASA’s headquarters to help him solve the verification program for the ISS. He flew the first wireless systems on the space shuttle from launch in orbit, starting a thing called “fly by wireless.” Shortly afterwards, the next accident happened, and it was this system that they then put on the wings for the 3D radar inspection system. In 2007, Mr. Studor held the first “fly by wireless” conference with commercial airlines. He had achieved world-wide approval to use the spectrum of radar for on-board safety critical functions. Mr. Studor continued to push this idea, and now there will be flight tests of systems coming soon to NASA.
