Leveraging Technology Synergies to Realize the Promise of Interdependent Systems

At the AIAA Propulsion and Energy Forum and Exposition (AIAA Propulsion and Energy 2014), the energy and excitement will result as much from the networking opportunities and plenary discussions as from the technical sessions. Propulsion and energy systems are at the very heart of aerospace, whether you are flying passengers to London or satellites to LEO. Every move forward in our exploration of the world, and the universe, is enabled by new technologies, and most of these come from the researchers and engineers who will come together at this forum.

Join us in Cleveland, 28-30 July 2014, as we roll up our sleeves to help answer:

  • How do we define propulsion and energy system architectures that are safe, clean, and economical?
  • How do we develop high energy and power density technologies for clean, sustainable energy production, power generation, and propulsion?
  • How do we implement advanced manufacturing solutions for propulsion and energy systems?

Questions point the way forward, and the attendees at AIAA Propulsion and Energy 2014 will be the ones helping to find the answers.
