the Future of Flight
Aviation is an essential component of the
world economy and global security. The success of aviation is due to
technological innovations that have provided an unprecedented level of
capability, capacity, and efficiency.
2013 is a premier, forward-looking forum designed to showcase
recent innovations and achievements in aviation, highlight new initiatives
and plans, and address key issues that need to be resolved in order to
define clear roadmaps for future progress.
general sessions focus on:
AIAA AVIATION 2013 also
encompasses several other events for its introductory year:
- AIAA Aviation Technology, Integration,
and Operations (ATIO) Conference covers a broad
range of topics, from the design and operation of aircraft of all kinds
(including lighter-than-air and balloon systems, and unmanned aircraft), to the
design and operation of the air traffic management system (from strategic
traffic planning systems to tactical air traffic control methods and
procedures), to the complex system-of-system connectivities to make it all
operate smoothly, now and into the future.
- International Powered Lift Conference
(IPLC),focusing on the latest developments in Vertical and/or
Short Take-Off and Landing (V/STOL) aircraft research, concepts, and
- Complex Aerospace Systems Exchange
(CASE) tackles some of the most important system development
issues facing aerospace chief engineers, program managers, and systems
engineers today, such as minimizing cost overruns and delays, and mitigating
late test failures.
