A Glimpse at Aviation
Please plan to attend this SAE Southern California Section meeting and presentation. Richard Parke, a Senior Engineer for Boeing Company, will discuss present and future aircraft and aviation technology.
Rich will begin with highlights of the US Air Force B1 and its evolution under Rockwell and Boeing from a strategic to a tactical bomber. He will next discuss the advanced technology concepts that needed to be development to meet the different performance requirements of Boeing's civil and military customers. Three new technology program examples will be given: subsonic, supersonic, and hypersonic. Rich will also cover environmental topics including sonic boom mitigation, reduction of CO2 emissions from aircraft, alternative cryogenic fuels such as methane and hydrogen, and advanced engine concepts including fuel cells and battery hybrid aircraft. This wide-ranging presentation will interest all mobility engineers. Both aerospace and automotive engineers should be intrigued by aerospace research interest in and possible development of recent advancements in automotive technology.
Rich Parke has been involved with the development and upgrade of military and commercial airplanes for over 32 years. He currently works in BoeingÃ¢ÂÂs Advanced Concepts group with a team of designers and analysts developing future aircraft. He will share some of his Aerospace experience and offer a glimpse of potential aircraft of the future.
