This volume includes papers from the National Academy of Engineering's 2001 US Frontiers of Engineering (USFOE) Symposium held in March 2002. USFOE meetings bring together 100 outstanding engineers (ages 30 to 45) to exchange information about leading-edge technologies in a range of engineering fields. The 2001 symposium covered four topic areas: Flight at the leading edge: Extreme aerodynamics from the mega to the micro, Civil systems, Wireless communications, and Technology and the human body.  Appendixes include information about contributors, the symposium program, and a list of meeting participants.
