  New Standards Address Counterfeit Parts, Vehicle Health
  New technical standards from SAE International are helping vehicle
  manufacturers and operators realize great success in two critical areas. One
  area of concern is the current proliferation of counterfeit parts in the
  supply chain. The other involves vehicle health management; specifically,
  the development of integrated systems for monitoring all aspects of vehicle
  health, including structural, propulsion, and electronics.
  Presented by Bruce Mahone, director, Washington Operations, SAE
  International and David Alexander, manager, SAE Aerospace Standards Europe,

1:00 PM – 2:00 PM EDT (10:00 AM – 11:00 AM PDT)

  Benefits of Multidisciplinary Model-Based Design
  Integrated multidisciplinary systems outperform legacy systems, but they are
  more complex, requiring close cooperation among multiple design disciplines.
  This presentation addresses the importance of modeling – physical and
  mathematical – in the multidisciplinary engineering system design process.
  Presented by Kevin Craig, Robert C. Greenheck Chair in Engineering Design
  and professor of mechanical engineering, College of Engineering, Marquette

2:00 PM – 3:00 PM EDT (11:00 AM – 12:00 PM PDT)

  A New Class of Antenna for Airline Passengers
  A new class of antenna technology promises to bring high-speed Internet
  connectivity to previously underserved land, sea, and airborne locations via
  satellite. This new antenna technology, combined with the proliferation of
  "high-throughput" satellites around the globe, will dramatically improve the
  user connectivity experience on airlines.
  Presented by Nathan Kundtz, CTO, Kymeta Corporation, Kymeta
