The SAE AeroTech Congress and Exhibition provides a forum for the global aerospace community to meet and discuss current and future challenges, opportunities, and requirements of next-generation R&D, products, and systems. Technical sessions, panel discussions, and keynote presentations make up a program that provides value to industry and government engineers, scientists, designers, program managers, operators, educators, and students. The technical program will cover a broad spectrum of topics including avionics, environment, flight sciences, operations, manufacturing, materials, structures, propulsion, safety, and systems. AeroTech also provides a venue for engineers participating on SAE committees and advisory bodies to meet and discuss industry standardization efforts and best practices. The event also provides opportunities for networking and personal discussion with other industry experts through networking breaks, exhibits, awards luncheon, receptions, and banquet.
