I have been living in Cambridge, Mass.
Married in 1960 to Catherine, daughter Danielle born in 1965, son Raymond
born in 1969. Danielle and her husband had a son, Calvin (our first
grandchild), last October, born in Manhattan, and currently residing in
Park Slope, Brooklyn. Back to the roots, eh?
After I quit smoking 35 years
ago,I took up running reasonably seriously. Ran marathons, and have
continued running, although slower, and shorter distances, as time marches
Raymond Ausrotas is a Director of
Flight Transportation Associates, an aviation consulting company in
Cambridge, Massachusetts. Until 1997, he had been the Associate Director
of the Flight Transportation Laboratory of the Massachusetts Institute of
Technology. At FTL, Mr. Ausrotas participated in a number of economic,
operational and technical studies. He was the primary investigator and
author on a NASA study to assess the future of the U.S. aviation system,
which was a comprehensive look at airlines, general aviation, airports,
and the air traffic control system to help define NASA's future research
needs. He was also the author of a similar NASA study to evaluate the
impact of advanced air transport technology on the demand for
international air travel. He was a major participant on a study which was
aimed at determining the impacts of technology initiatives on the capacity
needs of the U.S. airspace system. Mr. Ausrotas also participated in a
study to determine the future potential for a large all-cargo aircraft
system. Prior to joining the Flight Transportation Laboratory in 1971, Mr.
Ausrotas had been with the Instrumentation Laboratory at MIT (now C.S.
Draper Laboratory), working in the area of applied mathematics, with
emphasis on the guidance, navigation and control of aerospace vehicles.
His work involved extensive use of digital and analog computers for
modeling and simulation of dynamic systems. Mr. Ausrotas received Bachelor
of Science (1957) and Master of Science (1963) degrees from the
Massachusetts Institute of Technology. In 1972 he received the Master of
Business Administration degree from Boston University.
