Next-Generation Aerospace Innovation Takes Center Stage at SAE International’s AeroTech 2020

SAE International announced a group of industry leading keynote speakers and programs for AeroTech 2020, scheduled for Mar. 17-19, in Pasadena, California. Focusing on “Next-gen Now,” the opening keynote presentations will explore today’s next-generation aerospace innovation through advanced technology. The four aerospace thought leaders will update the industry on modern automated, electrified, and connected vehicles and systems; the rapid development of new platforms, systems and materials; and the next steps to bring cutting-edge, forward-thinking vehicles and systems to full deployment.

“Southern California is the epicenter of the aerospace technical community, as the state boasts the highest employment levels for aerospace engineers. AeroTech offers a program that focuses on the challenges impacting these aerospace engineers, both now and in the future, while also targeting tomorrow’s engineering leaders with such content as SAE’s inaugural AeroConnect Challenge event,” said Dave Weil, director of engineering events at SAE International. “We are also bringing a diverse roster of keynote speakers to lead engaging and insightful conversations that can inspire the advancement of the next generation of aerospace innovation.”

Throughout the conference, attendees will be able to connect with industry-leading engineering professionals, executives, regulators and researchers, as well as engage in technical sessions, lively panel discussions and tours of Northrop Grunman’s Space Park and Composite Center of Excellence. Also at AeroTech, SAE will hold the inaugural AeroConnect Challenge, a hands-on competition that tasks university teams to develop a deployable unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) system to aid in supporting wildfire fighting missions in California.

AeroTech will include a diverse set of panel discussions, including Women in Engineering and Emerging Technologies, Aviation Cybersecurity, U.S. Air Force New Energy, and Urban Air Mobility—Flying Cars & Air Taxis, among others. The 48 technical program sessions will highlight blended/hybrid-wing-body designs, electric propulsion technologies, supersonic transport, urban air mobility, environmental and government regulations, Industry 4.0, digital thread, and blockchain.
