The AIAA Guidance, Navigation, and Control Conference, AIAA Atmospheric Flight Mechanics Conference, AIAA Modeling and Simulation Technologies Conference, and AIAA Infotech@Aerospace Conference will combine in 2013 to provide the world’s premier forum for presentation, discussion, and collaboration of science, research, and technology in these highly related fields as they relate to aerospace. It will bring together experts from industry, government, and academia on an international level to cover a broad spectrum of issues concerning flight mechanics, modeling, simulation, information systems, and the guidance, navigation, and control of aerospace vehicles.
Event participants will:
- Present recent advances before a knowledgeable international audience
- Educate industry customers and providers on their latest research and product developments
- Draw lessons learned from past system applications and programs to result in increased technical success, cost savings, and schedule savings for current or ensuing projects or programs
- Network to engage new contacts and refresh old ones
- Recognize significant achievements from within the community
The co-location of these related AIAA events provides attendees with a unique opportunity to expand their knowledge of technological advances in these interrelated disciplines and explore areas of common technical expertise.
This event includes the following conferences:
The AIAA Guidance, Navigation, and Control Technical Committee is inviting participation in the AIAA Guidance, Navigation, and Control Conference. The conference is the largest forum dedicated to guidance, navigation, and control (GNC) serving the aerospace community. It brings together experts from industry, government, and academia on an international level to present and discuss all technical areas related to GNC for aerospace applications.
The AIAA Atmospheric Flight Mechanics (AFM) Conference provides a forum for presentation and discussion of all technical areas related to atmospheric flight. It brings together experts from industry, government, and academia on an international level. Presentations will cover the topics of aircraft dynamics, unsteady and high-angle-of-attack aerodynamics, flying qualities, system identification, aerospace vehicle flight testing, projectile and missile dynamics, UAVs, MAVs, NAVs, expendable and reusable launch vehicles, airships and hybrid airships, and reentry and aeroassist vehicles. These technical sessions consist of formal presentations followed by an informal discussion. They are intended to serve as a platform to bring together experts and interested people, not only to discuss technical aspects, but also to cultivate professional relationships.
The annual AIAA Modeling and Simulation Technologies Conference provides an opportunity for aviation and aerospace professionals interested in modeling, simulation, and simulators to gather and share their recent work and latest findings. The conference is attended by representatives of industry, government, and academia from all over the world, and is intended to foster collaboration and help build professional relationships. Experts willing to share their thoughts, as well as those people seeking fresh knowledge and ideas, are encouraged to participate. The conference format consists of multiple technical sessions covering a wide range of topics in the field of modeling and simulation. Within each technical session is a series of formal presentations, each followed by informal questions and answers.
Infotech@Aerospace (I@A) is AIAA’s premier forum for modern aerospace applications focusing on information-enabled systems, algorithms, hardware, and software. I@A provides a unique opportunity for fostering advances and interactions across these disciplines. The attendees and authors span military, scientific, commercial, and academic communities that are dominated by the communication of information via computers and software that will shape the 21st century development of aerospace systems. Scientific and engineering issues related to architecting, designing, developing, operating, and maintaining modern aerospace and defense systems will be addressed. This includes aircraft, spacecraft, ground systems, robots, avionics, and sensors, as well as systems of systems. Of particular interest are autonomous, cooperative, and unmanned systems, communication and networked systems, robotic systems, and human-machine interactions. Select technical papers will be considered for publication in AIAA’s Journal of Aerospace Information Systems (formerly Journal of Aerospace Computing, Information, and Communication).
