MADISON, AL, July 28, 2022 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Jerry J. Clubb has been included in Marquis Who's Who. As in all Marquis Who's Who biographical volumes, individuals profiled are selected on the basis of current reference value. Factors such as position, noteworthy accomplishments, visibility, and prominence in the field are all taken into account during the selection process.
As one of the world's foremost experts on avionics, for which he has been recognized and honored, Mr. Clubb has distinguished himself in his role on behalf of the National Aeronautical and Space Administration (NASA). To prepare for his career, he earned a Bachelor of Science Degree from the Missouri School of Mines. After college, he spent two years as a member of the U.S. Army. Upon his honorable discharge, he began his career with NASA designing and implementing a single-side band measuring-telemetry system for the Saturn Launch Vehicle. During this early stage of his career, he benefited greatly from the inspiration and tutelage of some of the experts and pioneers in rocket and space technology that were part of the Dr. Werner von Braun team working at NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Alabama.
Over the span of his professional journey of nearly five decades, Mr. Clubb made significant avionics software and hardware contributions to most of NASA's major programs including the Apollo, Skylab, Space Shuttle, Hubble Telescope and International Space Station. One contribution of note was his design of the avionics architecture for the International Space Station which ensured the station would continue to operate efficiently by providing for the continual upgrading necessary as new technology became available. Mr. Clubb has authored numerous papers and presented some of those papers at conferences nationally and internationally including in St. Petersburg, Russia and Irkutsk (Siberia), Russia. Mr. Clubb received many accolades from NASA over these five decades including a Silver Snoopy Award, three Exceptional Service Medals and an Outstanding Manager Medal. Mr. Clubb also received a 2010 Rotary NASA Stellar Award. For his work on the International Space Station in partnership with the Russian Space Agency, he was honored with the Yuri Gagarin Medal by the Federation of Cosmonautics.
Mr. Clubb considers his dedication to NASA to be the cornerstone of his success. He considers himself very fortunate to have recently utilized his knowledge from his time at NASA to contribute to the safety and reliability of the new NASA vehicle by working as a consultant on this project. Now that this vehicle is nearly ready for launch, Mr. Clubb intends to wind down his consultant work and enjoy his well-earned retirement.
