American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics
The American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (usually referred to as the AIAA, pronounced "A-I-double-A") is the primary professional society in the field of aeronautical and astronautical engineering. It publishes a number of technical journals, including the Journal of Spacecraft and Rockets, and a monthly general interest magazine, Aerospace America, and organizes a number of conferences on space engineering.
The AIAA was created when the American Rocket Society (founded as the American Interplanetary Society in 1930), and the Institute of Aerospace Sciences (founded as the Institute of Aeronautical Sciences in 1932) merged in 1963.
