The Summit Exercise was a success because it brought together more than 40 knowledgeable engineers and their thought-provoking work on 30 current engineering topics, and it demonstrated good systems engineering and collaboration. The Exercise resulted in reasonable prioritizations, technical recommendations, and breadth of knowledge expansion for most people on the related topics. The power behind this activity remains available to anyone that takes the time to review the individual presentations and participate in the Exercise. The key aspects for IEEE AESS include the topic selections, the Exercise development, and the summary debriefings from the participants. The SE methodology could be utilized by AESS Chapters as a useful exercise in member introductions, idea generation, and appreciation of IEEE engineering challenges (as demonstrated in the AESS Washington, DC/Northern Virginia Chapters). There would be a benefit to IEEE AESS if these existing and additional topics were further vetted, to a more complete solution, and direct relations to the AESS readers who develop systems in many IEEE areas.
