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 marketplace.

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:
  • 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, SAE International
  • 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 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 University
  • 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
  • How 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.
