    The U.S. Army’s senior technical expert for Analytics, Dr. Paramsothy Jayakumar, earned an election as the newest Fellow by the American Society of Mechanical Engineers as announced by the organization.

    Jayakumar has served the U.S. Army’s Combat Capabilities Development Command’s (DEVCOM) Ground Vehicle Systems Center since 2009.

    According to ASME, the society elects members to the grade of Fellow to, “recognize their outstanding engineering achievements.”

    As the senior technical expert for Analytics, Jayakumar is primarily responsible for developing and implementing the Army’s mobility and autonomy science and technology strategies, initiatives and roadmaps on behalf of the Chief Scientist and serves as the primary technical advisor to the Associate Director of Analytics. He also mentors and helps develop and train the technical staff at GVSC while participating in research activities and representing GVSC’s S&T teams externally to other government agencies, industry, and academia.

    First joining the GVSC team in 2009, Dr. Jayakumar has contributed to some of the most high-profile S&T efforts at the center. Key among these accomplishments is his leadership of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization S&T team that developed, demonstrated, and elevated to NATO standard the Next Generation NATO Reference Mobility Model, a breakthrough, disruptive advancement in computational terramechanics and vehicle simulation, providing unprecedented fidelity in mobility estimations using in-situ and real-time data inputs. In April 2021, NATO accepted the NG-NRMM as its new standard.

    Fellows must be nominated by other society members and fellows, have 10 or more years of active practice and at least 10 years of active membership in the organization.
