AMA Announces Tom Ozoroski as Director of Systems and Concepts
Hampton, VA: Analytical Mechanics Associates (AMA), a leading engineering services provider for NASA, is pleased to announce that Tom Ozoroski has been promoted to the position of Director of Systems and Concepts, effective December 1, 2021.
Tom earned B.S. and M.S. degrees in aerospace engineering from Penn State University followed by graduate level coursework and research in planetary geosciences at the University of Hawaii. He began working at NASA LaRC in 1991 supporting the Aerothermodynamics Branch and analyzing the Shuttle Upper Atmosphere Mass Spectrometer (SUMS) experimental data that allowed for determining atmospheric properties and Space Shuttle re-entry aerodynamics.
Tom has contributed to various research projects involving aircraft noise prediction tools and high altitude wind data. Since 2000, he has been supporting aircraft systems analysis and conceptual design efforts of the NASA LaRC Aeronautics Systems Analysis Branch. Tom joined AMA in 2012 where he has supervised and managed a large, diverse team of engineers, scientists, and code developers who support aeronautics systems analysis research.
Tom has been instrumental in AMA’s growth and support of both the Aeronautical Systems Analysis Branch and the Revolutionary Aviation Technology Branch at NASA LaRC.
