The 2010 IEEE National Aerospace Electronics Conference (NAECON) was held July 14–16, 2010 in Fairborn, Ohio. Approximately 100 papers, tutorials and keynotes were given in various areas of aerospace electronics including: cognitive systems, UAVs, bio-sensing, novel devices, smart textiles, smart antennas, flexible displays, RF reconfigurable microelectronics, radar, photonics, wireless communications, and wearable health-monitoring systems. New this year to NAECON was the Dr. Daniel William Repperger Outstanding Paper Award, to be given in memory of the late Dr. Repperger. A few of the highlights of the conference was a very significant and historical banquet speech entitled “The Dayton NCR WWII Codebreakers”, given by Deborah Anderson, daughter of Joseph Desch, who was the focus of the 2006 PBS documentary film The Dayton Codebreakers and our NAECON Grand Challenge - The Smart Vest, which had two teams competing.
