June 12, 2017 – (Diamond Bar, Calif.) – The Society for the Advancement of Material and Process Engineering (SAMPE) announces that the recipient of the 2017 Lubin Award is Dr. Charles E. Browning.
The Lubin Award is named for George Lubin, an originator of reinforced plastics and pioneer in the development and implementation of advanced composites for primary structures had a long and distinguished career. This award, SAMPE’s highest honor, is given to recognize individuals who have made significant contributions to the field of material and process engineering
Dr. Charles Browning is an internationally recognized expert in his profession and in the advancement of advanced composite material technology. He is a major contributor to the United States national defense and its aerospace industry. Through his management, he shaped the investment strategy over a 22-year period from 1983 to 2005 that enabled the Air Force to realize the benefits of advanced composites on the F-16, B-1, B-2, F-22, and F-35. His investments in composite processing, thermoplastics, high temperature polyimides, and the Composites Affordability Initiative have provided the Air Force significant war fighting capability. In addition, through the confidence the aerospace industry gained on the use of composites for Air Force aircraft, they were able to apply composites to civil aircraft, from the general aviation community through commercial airliners like the Boeing 787.
Dr. Browning will be honored at a special Award Ceremony on Monday evening, September 11 at the Hyatt Regency Orlando. This event will take place during CAMX – The Composites and Advanced Materials Expo – in Orlando, Florida September 11-14, 2017.

The Society for the Advancement of Material and Process Engineering is an international professional member society that provides information on new materials and processing technology either via technical forums, journal publications, or books in which professionals in this field can exchange ideas and air their views. As the only technical society encompassing all fields of endeavor in materials and processes, SAMPE provides a unique and valuable forum for scientists, engineers and academicians.
Created by ACMA and SAMPE to connect and advance all aspects of the world's composites and advanced materials communities, CAMX is an all-encompassing event. Regardless of the application – transportation, aerospace, marine, wind energy, software, construction and infrastructure, medical, academics, sports and leisure – CAMX is THE must-attend event for products, solutions, networking, business, and advanced industry thinking. CAMX replaces ACMA’s COMPOSITES Convention and SAMPE’s Annual Spring Convention forming one super industry event. CAMX 2017 expects over 550 exhibitors, 8500 participants, and 200 conference education sessions and technical paper presentations. For more information, visit www.theCAMX.org.
