As government and industry budgets are squeezed ever tighter, the customer is demanding greater capability for less money. This event provides a forum for discussions of new tools and processes capable of meeting the future budget challenges in rotorcraft development.
Leading experts from the government, academia, and industry will discuss the affordability challenges ahead of us. With budgets being squeezed, we are seeing the emergence of a new class of military and civil customers demanding greater capability for less cost; i.e. more value.
This Technical Specialists’ Meeting is a superb chance to present and discuss advances in every area of vertical flight technology related to the Affordability & Capability. It is incumbent on us, as system engineers, to spearhead the next step in the evolution of our industry by exploring the processes, tools and technologies which maximize value (Capability per $). We welcome papers in all disciplines discussing the capability enabling cost technologies and/or the system engineering tools and processes enabling such leaps.
This meeting is planned for September 14-15, 2015 at University of Alabama-Huntsville. Stand by for details!
