Featured Sessions

Back In Black: Aircraft And Defense Markets Outlook And Forecast

Keynote Richard L. Aboulafia, Vice President—Analysis, Teal Group

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.

Meeting the Increasing Electrical Design Challenges in Today’s Sophisticated Aerospace Systems

Technical Session Nick Smith, Business Development Director IESD, Mentor Graphics

This presentation will provide examples and an assessment of how industry leaders are implementing model-driven design to meet ever more demanding program requirements and functional specifications. It will outline what needs to be done, now and in the future, to realize these electronically intensive projects. Subjects addressed include architecting/optimizing designs and implementing subsystems across organizational, geographic, and supply-chain boundaries.

Advanced Systems Engineering and Model Philosophy

Technical Session Barclay Brown, Global Solution Executive for Aerospace and Defense, IBM

In Advanced Systems Engineering, the relationship between models and requirements is also changing and evolving to include both model-driven requirements and requirements-driven models. Though many buy into the mantra, “models are the answer” in systems engineering, we must distinguish what makes a model, a model. Beyond particular modeling languages and diagram types, models exist for various purposes, and can have relationships with each other, forming a kind of “model of models.”

Technical Sessions will focus on these disciplines:

  • Platform-level Systems Engineering
  • Electrical & Wire Harness Design
  • Model-based Systems Design and Analysis
  • Network Verification (DO-330/DO-178C)
  • Design Lifecycle Management
  • Integrated PCB Systems Design & Manufacturing
  • Thermal Design for Reliability

Don't miss your opportunity to:

  • Get great insights from Mentor Graphics experts on new techniques & methodologies that address the challenges of complex system design

  • Meet other professionals like yourself to share experiences, tips, and tricks

  • Cocktail reception from 5:00 PM to 7:00 PM
