SAE International Aerospace Systems & Technology Conference to Co-Locate with International Powered Lift Conference (IPLC)

WARRENDALE, Pa., Sept. 8, 2016 - The SAE 2016 Aerospace Systems & Technology Conference (ASTC) will be held in conjunction with the 2016 International Powered Lift Conference (IPLC) on September 27-29, 2016 in Hartford, CT. The IPLC 2016 brings a focus on three primary thrusts: advanced rotorcraft, jet lift concepts and technologies, and recent progress in electric propulsion applications to V/STOL to complement the ASTC programming.

The IPLC focuses on the latest developments in Vertical and/or Short Take-Off and Landing (V/STOL) aircraft research, concepts and programs. IPLC, which was first held 25 years ago, is a joint AIAA-AHS-SAE-RAeS technical meeting.

IPLC 2016 will bring together engineers, technologists and managers to discuss the latest developments in V/STOL. Topics will focus on the technologies, promise and progress of powered lift systems, with applications ranging from helicopters to advanced rotorcraft to runway independent aircraft to jet-borne lift aircraft.

All ASTC attendees will receive entrance to this event with their ASTC registration. Learn more about the program and explore the comprehensive schedule by clicking here.
