WARNING Technology Transfer Considerations
Prospective authors are reminded that technology transfer guidelines have considerably extended the time required for review of abstracts and completed papers by U.S. government agencies. Internal (company) plus external (government) reviews can consume 16 weeks or more. Government review if required is the responsibility of the author. Authors should deter¬mine the extent of approval necessary early in the paper prepa¬ration process to preclude paper withdrawals and late submis¬sions. The conference technical committee will assume that all abstracts papers and presentations are appropriately cleared.

International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR)
AIAA speakers and attendees are reminded that some topics discussed at conferences could be controlled by the International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR). U.S. nationals (U.S. citizens and permanent residents) are responsible for ensuring that technical data they present in open sessions to non-U.S. nationals in attendance or in conference proceedings are not export restricted by the ITAR. U.S. nationals are likewise responsible for ensuring that they do not discuss ITAR export-restricted information with non-U.S. nationals in attendance.
