)-- ACTA, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Advanced Core Concepts (ACC), is pleased to announce the recognition of Jerry Haber as the 2019 IAASS Jerome Lederer Space Safety Pioneer in honor of his outstanding contributions to the field of space safety. As Vice President of ACTA, Mr. Haber has served as an industry pioneer in risk analysis for space operations, while fostering the development of a space safety culture that has left a lasting mark not only on his company but the international space community as well.
Since 1968, Mr. Haber has been engaged in launch and reentry safety modeling and safety criteria development & analysis - such modeling approaches for launch vehicle hazards have enabled higher-fidelity risk evaluations that offer significant flexibility in launch planning. He began his career at the Systems Technology Center of Lear Siegler developing flight safety models and software for Vandenberg Air Force Base and the Navy at Point Mugu. After joining the J. H. Wiggins Company in 1972, he became a key member of the modeling and analysis team that created the modern approach for flight safety analysis. His projects included the first third party risk analysis for the STS, various missiles, and evaluation of the environmental impacts of range operations. Since joining ACTA in 1989, he has led the development of common risk acceptability and risk analysis standards across the US and promoted their international adoption. As Vice President of ACTA, Mr. Haber’s work remains focused on providing government agencies with the guidance and tools needed to assure public safety within domestic and international launch communities.
Mr. Haber offers: "I’m greatly appreciative of the honor that has been provided to me with this award. My commitment to our space safety community is to continue building processes and trainings in support of the growing space industry so the next generation can continue to reach for the stars with confidence in the protection of our safety practices."
