The Tech Council addresses standards in flight testing such as sign conventions, measurement units, parameter names, nomenclature, abbreviations, and control room displays. The purpose is to provide consistency between flight test programs and organizations to allow more efficient, high quality flight testing while promoting safe flight operations.
The Tech Council organizes and develops criteria for judging presentations at annual SFTE symposiums. Emphasis is placed on technical significance, innovation, and credibility in addition to audience consideration. The Tech Council also regularly requests volunteers to assist judging the presentations at the annual symposium.
