Kaminski, who holds a doctorate in aeronautics and astronautics, is widely recognized as a pioneer of national reconnaissance and stealth technology. He has received numerous awards during his career. These include the National Medal of Technology 2006, the Department of Defense Medal for Distinguished Public Service, the Ronald Reagan Award for Missile Defense, the Air Force Systems Command Scientific Achievement Award, and the International Strategic Studies Association Possony Medal for Outstanding Contributions to Strategic Progress through Science and Technology.
