The 23rd AIAA Aerodynamic Decelerator Systems Technology Conference and Seminar provides the world’s leading scientists, engineers, researchers, and managers, as well as promising students within the field of parachute and aerodynamic decelerator systems, an opportunity to present recent advances before a knowledgeable international audience. Topics include Modeling and Simulation, System Applications and Operations, Testing, Materials and Manufacturing, Design and Development, and more.
Co-located with the PIA Meeting and Symposium!
The AIAA event will be held in conjunction with the Parachute Industry Association (PIA) Meeting and Symposium
. PIA’s primary areas of interest are the manufacture of parachute systems and materials, along with the more hands-on aspects of rigging, maintenance, and operation. The AIAA and PIA events will complement each other by providing a broader perspective of the field of aerodynamic decelerators. Joint activities will offer interaction between the groups and increase the value to all participants!
