ACE TECHNICAL SYMPOSIUM: Tuesday, October 9, 2018

 

The ACE Technical Symposium was created in 2015 as part of the SC Aerospace Conference and Expo as a platform for industry and academia to present their research and innovation in aerospace.

The technical symposium concentrates on the following areas:

I. Aerospace Structures and Materials:  the future of fiber composites;

II. Analysis and Simulation in Aircraft Manufacture and Maintenance:  In-situ non-destructive evaluation and condition based maintenance;

III. Automation in Aircraft Design and Manufacture:  engineering tools and developments to support design, reduce cost and increase the speed of and manufacture of advanced structures;

IV. Industry 4.0: achieve digital transformation of industries goals through big data analytics, predictive maintenance, digital twins and internet of things (IoT);

V. Conformal Antennas: the understanding of aerospace composite materials and structures to design conformal antennas and RF structures for communication, radar, and sensing.
