This document contains four papers on aeronautics education, research, and partnerships that partly supported through the Aeronautics Education, Research, and Industry Alliance (AERIAL). The paper "2002 AERIAL Monograph" (Brent D. Bowen, Jocelyn S. Nickerson, Mary M. Fink, et al.) presents an overview of research and development in the following areas that is being conducted by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) Nebraska Space Grant Consortium: spaceports; aviation safety; the Nebraska Native American Outreach Program; and geospatial research. "Airborne Remote Sensing (ARS) for Agricultural Research and Commercialization Applications (White Paper)" (Ram Narayanan, Brent D. Bowen, Jocelyn S. Nickerson) discusses the integration of aerospace technology enterprise applications at the Nebraska Remote Sensing Facility with other NASA enterprises as a model of cross-enterprise transfer of science with specific commercial applications. "Validated Numerical Models for the Convective Extinction of Fuel Droplets (CEFD)" (George Gogos, Brent D. Bowen, Jocelyn S. Nickerson) reports on a transient numerical model that was developed to study the combustion of suspended and moving fuel droplets. "The Small Aircraft Transportation System (SATS): Research Collaborations with the NASA Langley Research Center" (Scott E. Tarry, Brent D. Bowen, Jocelyn S. Nickerson) describes efforts to develop innovative solutions to various air transportation problems. Two papers contain substantial bibliographies. (MN)
