Mentor Graphics’ Military & Aerospace Integrated Electrical Solutions Forum (IESF) 2011 is coming up fast on the calendar – Tuesday, September 13 in Long Beach, California. This is a companion event to our Automotive IESF 2011 held in Detroit, Michigan in early June. And just like the June event, Military & Aerospace IESF will be chock-full of technical content.

The September 13 event focuses on Mil-Aero design and highlights development solutions for military and aerospace systems. As the economy continues its recovery, military and aerospace suppliers are adding to their investment in design technology in order to implement cutting-edge capabilities in ground, marine, and airborne systems.

As military and aerospace technology advances, so too must the design tools that help turn design concepts into real, functioning systems. IESF events are perfect venues for learning about the advanced tools Mentor Graphics offers to help meet real world system development challenges. Military & Aerospace IESF 2011 is a must-attend event for professionals involved in:

  • Electrical systems design
  • System modeling, simulation, and analysis
  • Wire harness design and engineering
  • Systems integration
  • Electrical maintenance and repair
  • FPGA, ASIC, and PCB development
  • DO-254 and ARP 4754A certification

In addition to multiple breakout sessions, several industry experts will join the event to share their insights and expertise on key military and aerospace industry topics:

  • Aaron Shin, senior director at Raytheon, will share examples of Raytheon’s efforts to pursue Lean PD projects to improve speed, cost, and design quality
  • Richard Aboulafia, Teal Group’s vice president of analysis, will discuss major market trends in today’s aviation business
  • Mark Duguay, EWIS design and assurance manager at Bombardier, will present an overview of the electrical wire interconnection system (EWIS) design process and discuss issues such as certification, multi-site globalization, ongoing support within the EWIS context, and the EWIS life cycle
  • Joe Goode, CEO of LogiCircuit, will talk about reducing an established DO-254 process flow
  • Luke Rice, design engineer at ATK, will introduce an iterative process for simulating complex military and aerospace systems
  • Mike Shaw, electrical engineer at Goodrich, will present some of his work in developing an electro-magnetic brake system for the more electric airplane

About Mike Jensen

Mike JensenMost career paths rooted in high technology take many interesting (and often rewarding) twists and turns. Mine has certainly done just that. After graduating in electrical engineering from the University of Utah (go Utes!), I set off to explore the exciting, multi-faceted high tech industry. My career path since has wound its way from aircraft systems engineering for the United States Air Force, to over two decades in applications engineering and technical marketing for leading design automation software companies, working exclusively with mechatronic system modeling and analysis tools. Along the way, I’ve worked with customers in a broad range of industries and technologies including transportation, communications, automotive, aerospace, semiconductor, computers, and consumer electronics; all-in-all a very interesting, rewarding, and challenging ride. In my current gig, I work on technical marketing projects for Mentor Graphics' SystemVision product line. And in my spare time I dream up gadgets and gizmos, some even big enough to qualify as systems, that I hope someday to build -- providing I can find yet a little more of that increasingly elusive spare time.
