This symposium is concerned with multidisciplinary and integration problems (subjects where separate disciplines interact in synergy). Typical domains of interest are: MDO, fluid-structure-GNC-thermal interaction, mission/ trajectories, advanced or new concepts, actuators, vehicle comfort, FDIR approaches, embedded systems/ trends on Information technologies, architecture design with COTS hardware, augmented reality, energy harvesting, system aspects of space debris, special sessions on ongoing research program.
The Flight Physics Symposium addresses all aspects of aerodynamics relevant to aircrafts and UAVs, missiles and projectiles, launchers, and re-entry vehicles. Topics will deal both with external and internal flows since aerodynamics or aero-acoustics are the main concern of the symposium. Papers will address at least one of the following three approaches: physical understanding, theoretical analysis, and/ or the development of control technologies & control methodologies applied to aeronautical or aerospace flows. Non-intrusive metrology and code validation are an essential ingredient.
STRUCTURES AND MATERIALS
The structures and materials symposium covers breakthrough improvements to aerospace structures and engines from innovative materials, processing technologies, structural design and analysis. Massive introduction of fiber-reinforced organic composites has come of age and the introduction of other composites is progressing in the engines. New processes like additive manufacturing must also be treated.
FLIGHT DYNAMICS/ GNC and AVIONICS
This symposium will cover the applications of novel analytical and experimental methods for the analysis and the prediction of the flight dynamics and GNC of civil and military airplanes, helicopters, drones, launch vehicles and spacecraft as well as on-board electronics and avionics.
The Propulsion Physics Symposium will cover all aspects of air-breathing and space propulsion, spanning from new developments in engines and propellants to modeling and testing. Topics range from basic research and development to applied studies, using experimental, theoretical and/ or advanced numerical methods, with special focus on fundamental physical understanding, metrology and code validation.
CONFERENCE ON REUSABLE SYSTEMS FOR SPACE ACCESS
This symposium is for all stakeholders involved in the research and development of reusable launch systems. It will review the status of the different activities and projects, and cover all the technical topics associated with reusability, including technology demonstrators, system studies and new missions enabled by reusability. It will also address reusability strategies, synergies with aeronautics, development roadmaps, commercial aspects, Space access policy.
WORKSHOP ON IN-SITU RESOURCE UTILIZATION (ISRU)
This workshop will cover all aspects of energy and power; materials, construction and architecture; oxygen and water from regolith and polar volatiles; regolith excavation and processing; resource prospecting needs and approaches; production of consumables and propellants; environmental challenges; crossovers with terrestrial resources; missions, supporting technologies and commercial activities.
