AAS was de­signed and writ­ten by Chris Biemes­der­fer in 1988. Sub­stan­tial re­vi­sions were made by Lee Brotz­man and Pierre Lan­dau when the pack­age was up­dated to v4.0. AAS was rewrit­ten as a class by Arthur Ogawa for the v5.0 re­lease. It was up­dated to v5.2 by SR Nova Pri­vate Ltd. Amy Hen­drick­son (nol­ogy Inc.) wrote the v6.0 re­lease which it­self was pri­mar­ily based on the em­u­lateapj class­file cre­ated by Maxim Marke­vitch and Alexey Vikhlinin. Amy Hen­drick­son also cre­ated ver­sions v6.1 and v6.2. Over the years the doc­u­men­ta­tion has ben­e­fited from re­vi­sions by Jean­nette Barnes, Sara Zim­mer­man, Greg Sch­warz, Gus Me­unch, Amy Hen­d­er­ick­son, and But­ler Bur­ton.
