Arlington, Va. – Rick Barnard, one of the founders of Defense News, Space News and Civil Aviation News, and the founding editor of Defense News, has been selected to receive the 2013 Lauren D. Lyman Award for outstanding achievement in aerospace communications.

An acknowledged expert on defense and federal management, Barnard’s career in journalism spanned over three decades.  Barnard is the recipient of the prestigious National Press Club award for excellence in consumer reporting, and has been featured as a commentator on 60 minutes, CBS’s Sunday Morning, PBS’s Late Night America, the Larry King Show and NPR’s All Things Considered. Under his direction, Defense News twice has received the Gerald R. Ford Foundation award for distinguished reporting of defense issues.

"To receive the Lyman Award is an honor,” said Barnard. “I am grateful to United Technologies Corp., the Aerospace Industries Association and each of its members. I feel I received this honor in large part because of the great work done by those around me. During my 27 years as an editor, I was surrounded by journalists who were tenacious, highly skilled and passionate about their work. I share this award with them."

Barnard received the award at AIA's 49th Annual Year-End Review and Forecast luncheon this afternoon.

The award is named after Lauren "Deac" Lyman, a Pulitzer-prize winning aviation reporter with the New York Times who later had a distinguished career as a public relations executive with United Aircraft, a predecessor to United Technologies Corporation. First awarded in 1972, the prize goes to a journalist or public relations professional in aviation who exhibits Lyman’s high standard of excellence. UTC is the longtime sponsor of the award.

Founded in 1919 shortly after the birth of flight, the Aerospace Industries Association is the most authoritative and influential trade association representing the nation’s leading manufacturers and suppliers of civil, military and business aircraft, helicopters, unmanned aircraft systems, space systems, aircraft engines, missiles, homeland and cybersecurity systems, materiel and related components, equipment services and information technology.
