GlobalSpec's "Aerospace Technology" event provided opportunities to learn
about the latest trends in aircraft design, assembly, and test; and explore
new technologies impacting today's military, commercial, and scientific
aircraft – from new avionics and flight control strategies to material systems
incorporating lightweight composites and high-strength alloys. Attendees were
able to interact with exhibitors, network with their peers, and participate in
key educational sessions to help them keep pace in today's rapidly-changing
Industrial professionals were able to take advantage of these learning and
networking opportunities from the convenience of their desktops, without
having to budget for travel expenses or lose time away from the office.
"Industrial professionals who attended our Aerospace Technology online event
heard from experts on what's driving change in the industry and interacted
with leading suppliers and manufacturers," said Donna Lewis, vice president of
e-publishing and e-events for GlobalSpec. "It's also a powerful forum for
exhibitors to share their expertise and showcase their products and innovative
technologies to a captive and engaged audience."
Speakers and topics at the event included:
oNew 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, SAE International
oBenefits 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 addressed 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
oA 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
oHow Aerospace Leaders Manage and Use Materials Information – The longevity
and reliability of electrical inverters in solar electric systems is
highly dependent on the level of protection from harsh environmental
factors. This presentation discussed four key factors that must be
considered in the design of enclosures for electrical inverters.
Presented by Dr. Michael Gorelik, engineering fellow, Honeywell Aerospace;
Dr. Steven M. Arnold, chief, Mechanics and Life Prediction Branch, NASA;
E. Joe Sharp, manager, Computational Methods Group, Boeing Research &
Technology; and Dr. Will Marsden, product director, Granta Design
SAE International was the event's Supporting Organization.
