Abstract

This special merit is awarded to Professor Raymond Gilbert “Gil” Moore in recognition of his considerable contributions of outstanding significance to the small satellite community over the course of his distinguished career. As noted by many throughout our industry, the service provided by Mr. Moore to the small satellite community has had a far-reaching effect as he has played a considerable role in its significant growth.

With over 70 years of experience in the aerospace industry, Mr. Moore has played significant roles in the development and launch of numerous sounding rockets, upper atmospheric balloons, the Space Shuttle, solar-terrestrial physics research campaigns, and small satellites. Mr. Moore is a strong proponent for research and education, providing hands-on training and mentorship opportunities to tens of thousands of students through small satellite projects including “Get Away Special” experiments aboard NASA’s Space Shuttles, and Project Starshine which involved students from hundreds of schools across 40 countries.

Mr. Moore was one of the founders of the Small Satellite Conference, which brings the world’s community of small satellite developers together annually to share lessons learned and innovative concepts. Even today, 35 years after its inception, many of the attributes of the Conference owe their beginnings to Mr. Moore.
