Len Losik's third group of four technical papers published by AIAA Space Conference included in this Volume are: "The Engineering Practices Necessary for Producing Equipment that Meets both Performance and Mission Life Requirements"; "Upgrading the Space Flight Factory Acceptance Testing for Equipment and Vehicle Design, Manufacture, Test and Integration"; "Using Satellites to Predict Earthquakes, Volcano Eruptions, Identify and Track Tsunamis"; "Using the Prognostic Health Management Program on the Air Force Next Generation Reusable Launch Vehicle". These 4 papers published in this volume by the AIAA Space Conference explains why NASA, commercial and the U.S. military spacecraft and any large complex defense weapons fail prematurely at rates from 10% to 60% and why the U.S. military and the U.S. government refuses to require its space systems and weapons systems suppliers to produce and deliver systems that won't fail prematurely and PHM technology developed by the author to win funding for the GPS program that identifies the equipment with premature aging that will cause a premature failure for replacement at the factory before shipment to the customer.

About the Author

Len experience with communications theory occurred following his first graduation from college, when he earned degrees in Physics and Mathematics simultaneously and then gained employment as an Electrical Engineer, designing, launching and controlling spacecraft for NASA and the U.S. Air Force.

Academically, Len completed the academic requirements for three A.A. degrees, two B.S. degrees in Physics and Mathematics simultaneously, an M.A. degree and Ph.D in Electrical Engineering and an M.S. degree in Education. Professionally, Len is an award winning spacecraft designer and designed satellites and rockets for the military and NASA as well as national and international civil, commercial and government organizations.

Len's most important accomplishment professionally occurred when he was the Boeing GPS Space and Ground Systems Manager and won funding for the U.S. Air Force's Global Positioning System (GPS) satellite-based navigation system by the Department of Defense/Pentagon, replacing two existing low earth orbiting, satellite-based navigation systems in place by the U.S. Navy by developing and using PHM technology on GPS satellites. Len has also been an executive at several aerospace and defense industry companies as well as telecommunications and computer manufacturing companies.

His collaborations with counseling, psychologists and psychiatrists began in 1989 and continues today, working with holistic medicine practitioners and students and in the new field of predictive medicine. When the Canadian Space Agency's Predictive Medicine personnel requested he apply his proprietary, predictive algorithms to determine if he could predict which astronauts would become mentally ill on long duration space mssions, he agreed to do it.

The research for the Canadian Space Agency is included in this book and an edited version of his research was published at the 2013 IEEE/AIAA Aerospace Conference in Big Sky Montana and he then published his edited results in the Internet based, American Journal of Applied Psychology for public access and to NASA Headquarters in 2013.

Len's research triggered NASA to inmate a study to determine the long term degradation of astronauts by keeping an astronaut in space continuously for one year. Six female astronauts were immediately hired and augment the many male astronauts. The physical and mental degradation from the first astronaut in the study after just 10 months is planned to be released by NASA in 2018.
