Charting 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.
AIAA AVIATION 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.
- Engages those involved in the entire product life-cycle from disciplinary research to product development to system operation and maintenance.
- Eliminates barriers by addressing the global nature of aviation requirements, opportunities, regulatory limitations, research activities, development programs, and operations.
- Provides the breadth and depth of content and audience participation that is necessary for tackling the issues critical to safeguarding and shaping the future of aviation.
AVIATION 2013 tackles these questions:
- What are the trends for commercial, military, business, general, unmanned, and rotorcraft aviation?
- What economic and investment considerations will affect the future of aviation?
- What major challenges face aviation – including operations, capacity, capability, efficiency, security, resource availability and environmental issues?
- How will these challenges drive technology development and implementation?
- What are the key emerging technologies?
- What policy and regulatory issues may constrain aviation’s development?
- What effect will globalization have on the future of aviation?
Seven general sessions focus on:
- Commercial Aviation: Global Outlook, Opportunities, and Challenges
- Military Aviation: Future Challenges Facing Military Aviation
- Business Aviation, General Aviation, and Rotorcraft: Global Outlook, Opportunities, and Challenges
- The Connectivity Challenge: Protecting Critical Assets in a Networked World
- The Energy Imperative
- Developing the Market for Unmanned Aerial Systems
- Shaping the Discussion: Key Policy Issues
Be a part of AIAA AVIATION 2013 and help define a shared vision for the future that will continue to transform our economy, security and way life.
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 programs.
- 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.
