2022 Development, Qualification and Affordability of Complex Systems Technical Meeting

VFS Complex Systems Meeting 2022

Register now!

The VFS Redstone Chapter is sponsoring a Technical Meeting on the Development, Affordability and Qualification of Complex Systems to be held as in-person event from Sept. 14-15, 2022 in Huntsville, Alabama.

To achieve the desired capabilities of next-generation vertical lift, the modern aircraft has evolved into a highly interconnected assembly of disparate systems. Acquisition strategy now values experimentation, learning through prototypes, and speed of acquisition over traditional approaches. This meeting will investigate new standards, processes, methods and tools relevant to the qualification and fielding of complex systems applicable to future vertical lift. The complexity of systems continues to accelerate, while the assessment and qualification methods race to address the interactive, non-determinisitic nature and scale of the solutions. Leading experts from the government, academia, and industry will discuss the challenges of developing and qualifying affordable and safe complex systems.

The abstract submission phase has now closed and final papers are due September 5, 2022Call for Papers.
