WASHINGTON – NASA’s Aeronautics Research Mission Directorate, in cooperation with the American Helicopter Society International (AHS), selected Eric Greenwood II from the University of Maryland, University Park, as its first NASA AHS Lichten Internship Award winner.

Greenwood was selected based on his paper “Helicopter External Noise Radiation in Turning Flight: Theory and Experiment,” submitted to the AHS International 2007 Robert L. Lichten Competition.

The award supports NASA’s goal to enhance the educational experiences of highly qualified U.S. engineering students in fields of interest to the agency’s aeronautics program. These fields include fundamental research, particularly in subsonic rotary wing technologies.

Greenwood will receive an eight-week, NASA-sponsored internship to be split between Ames Research Center in Moffett Field, Calif., and Langley Research Center in Hampton, Va. Both centers are active in helicopter noise research as part of NASA’s Subsonic Rotary Wing Project. Greenwood will spend the summer immersed in NASA rotary wing science and technology projects.

Greenwood graduated from the Rochester Institute of Technology, Rochester, N.Y., with a Bachelor of Science degree in mechanical engineering (aerospace option), in 2005. He has specialized in rotorcraft acoustics for his graduate program in aerospace engineering.
