DOWNEY RESIDENT NAMED A ROCKWELL ENGINEER OF THE YEAR

 DOWNEY, Calif., Feb. 22 /PRNewswire/ -- Rockwell International Corp. has named Downey resident Daniel F. Dominik an "Engineer of the Year," the company's highest honor for technical achievement.
 Dominik, 41, a senior engineering specialist, vehicle and systems analysis, at Rockwell's Space Systems Division (SSD) in Downey, was one of 15 Rockwell engineers and scientists to receive the honor recently at an awards ceremony at the Long Beach Hilton. The award annually acknowledges outstanding technical achievement among Rockwell's 16,000 engineers and scientists worldwide. Only 261 Rockwell employees have earned the distinction since the award's inception in 1975.
 Presenting the awards were Rockwell executives Donald R. Beall, chairman and chief executive officer; Sam F. Iacobellis and Kent M. Black, executive vice presidents and chief operating officers; and Robert L. Cattoi, senior vice president for research, engineering and manufacturing processes. Each honoree received a silver medallion stamped with the image of Leonardo da Vinci, celebrating the tradition of innovation and continuing spirit of discovery.
 In a congratulatory letter to Dominik, Beall said, "We are proud of our engineering excellence at Rockwell, and are justifiably proud of your significant contributions to that excellence."
 Dominik was honored for developing and applying computational fluid dynamics to predict aerodynamic forces on the Space Shuttle under varying flight conditions. "Dan's work has given Rockwell and NASA engineers a better understanding of the aerodynamic pressure variations that occur on the shuttle, allowing them to more accurately correlate flight-measured and wind-tunnel data," said Rockwell SSD President Robert G. Minor. "We at Rockwell salute his outstanding accomplishments, which have substantially enhanced Rockwell's technical reputation in the field of computational fluid dynamics."
 Dominik, who joined Rockwell in 1974, received his bachelor of science degree in Aeronautical and Astronautical Engineering from the University of Illinois, Urbana, and a master of science degree in mechanical engineering from California State University, Fullerton.
 Rockwell International is a multi-industry company applying advanced technology to a wide range of products in its electronics, aerospace, automotive and graphics businesses.
