IESF 2013: Featured Presenters

Featured Presenter Events

Meeting the Challenge of Developing the ‘More Electric’ Aircraft Wednesday, March 20, 9:20 AM

Keynote As electronic content increases dramatically in aerospace design, aircraft are evolving into sophisticated networked computing platforms. Unfortunately, there has not been a corresponding evolution in electronic design tools and methodologies, even as the industry moves towards a ‘more electric’ aircraft. To bridge this design gap, model-driven development is emerging as the best way to manage this complex process. Dr. Rhines will provide examples and an assessment of where aviation leaders are in the process of implementing model driven design to meet ever more demanding program requirements and functional specifications. He then will outline what needs to be done, both now and in the future, to eventually realize the goals of the all-electric airplane: including architecting and optimizing designs, and implementing subsystems across organizational, geographic, and supply-chain boundaries.

Strong Aircraft, Weak Economy: A Complicated Picture? Wednesday, March 20, 10:50 AM

Technical Session A discussion of all major market trends in the aviation business today, the presentation will cover growth rates, market risks, and competitive dynamics for all turbine-powered aircraft markets, products, and manufacturers. Specifically, it will look at military fixed and rotary wing aircraft, large commercial jetliners, regional aircraft, and business aviation. A Q&A session will also answer audience questions on any secondary and related markets, such as jet engines or defense spending.
