The Steering Committee of the Aerospace Bloc of the Gear Research Institute will meet at the Applied Research Laboratory of The Pennsylvania State University on August 23. While each sponsor of this Bloc is invited to send many individuals to attend the meeting, they nominate one individual as its representative on the Steering Committee. This committee jointly evaluates research efforts to date on current projects, directs changes to tasks, if necessary and identifies and approves new projects for future investigations, utilizing Bloc membership funds. Meetings are generally conducted twice a year when sufficient material for discussion is available to justify such a meeting. Current sponsors of this Bloc are Avio, Boeing, Curtiss Wright, Honeywell, Pratt & Whitney, REM Chemicals, Rolls Royce, Sikorsky Aircraft and Timken-Latrobe.
