RF System Lab is proud to be a part of many different industry memberships. Industry memberships and associations allow us to stay up to date on upcoming annual meetings and conferences offered to members, as well as stay connected with the many industries we serve.
Because of this, we decided to feature memberships that we are a part of on the RF System Lab Inside Scope blog. Last month we gave you the top reasons to be a part of NBAA. This month, we’d like to discuss the benefits of joining the Army Aviation Association of America (better known as “Quad-A” or AAAA).
AAAA’s mission is simple: “Supporting the Army Aviation Soldier and Family.” The association provides many opportunities to show support and fulfill that mission through their membership benefits. RF System Lab falls under their “Industry Membership” category, so this blog will focus on the benefits offered from that specific type of membership.
According to the AAAA website, “The Industry Membership Program is designed to foster approved and meaningful interchange between government and industry. Corporate representatives have the opportunity to keep up to date with the changing Army Aviation community, participate in local and national meetings and to develop professional contacts critical to the corporation’s current and future programs and plans.”
Industry members also have the opportunity to participate in the many programs AAAA offers. The first of these opportunities include a subscription to Army Aviation Magazine, the official AAAA publication and the Industry Partners Directory, which gives an insight into the “who’s who” of the Army Aviation industry.
Another benefit of membership is that industry members are able to give back to those who served. AAAA provides industry members with two different ways to do this: The AAAA Scholarship Program and the AAAA Post-Career Employment Program (PCEP). The Scholarship programs give members a chance to make corporate contributions, recognized through the Corporate Matching Fund Scholarship Program that go towards scholarships and interest free loans to members of the AAAA and their family members. The PCEP offers industry members the opportunity to hire enlisted soldiers who are retiring or leaving active service to enhance their workforce. Through this program, the AAAA gives industry members access to many qualified, highly-skilled and disciplined personnel.
One of the exclusive membership benefits that we at RF System Lab find most rewarding is the AAAA Annual Forum. The Forum exclusively gives industry members the chance to exhibit and is also a great forum for networking with fellow professionals. In addition, AAAA sponsors several conferences and forums annually with more specific subject areas (Avionics, Electronics, etc.) that industry members are invited to attend.
RF System Lab is proud to be a member of AAAA and show continuous support for Soldiers and their families through AAAA activities. To read more about the industry membership benefits or to sign up for a membership yourself, you can visit the AAAA Membership benefits page.

Joel Riling returned last week from the 2014 Army Aviation Mission Solutions Summit, sponsored by the Army Aviation Association of America (AAAA). The summit brought together the entire Army Aviation industry for a chance to connect and discuss solutions for War-fighters at the Gaylord Opryland Hotel in Nashville, TN on May 4-6, 2014.
Riling, RF System Lab’s VP of Government Programs and his wife attended the show, and both had a great time. Riling reports: “Army Aviation Mission Solutions Summit was very well attended by hundreds of Active Duty Army personnel. I also had multiple technicians tell me that they currently use the VJ-Advance or have used it in the past – they all love it!”
Riling also mentioned that the VJ-Advance (VJ-ADV) video borescope received a great deal of interest from both military and commercial defense contractors of all types. Some of those contractors, such as Lockheed Martin, Sikorsky and Northrop Grumman, are among those who already own the VJ-ADV.
Overall, this was an excellent show and Riling is looking forward to attending in the future. If you were unable to test drive the VJ-Advance video borescope at the Army Aviation Mission Solutions Summit, we would like to offer you a free trial. To make the decision process easy, we offer the industry’s only no-cost, no-obligation demo program so you can evaluate the VJ-Advance line of video borescopes in your facility doing your inspections, before you decide to buy.
