AIAA/IEEE Electric Aircraft Technologies Symposium (EATS)
August 24, 2020 @ 8:00 am – August 26, 2020 @ 5:00 pm
The aerospace industry has set ambitious goals for the next three generations of commercial transport aircraft to accommodate rapid growth in emerging markets and ensure the sustainability of air travel. One approach being explored to meet these targets is non-traditional aircraft propulsion using electric, turboelectric or hybrid-electric powertrains. Recent events by the IEEE and AIAA have identified the need to bring together electrical engineers and aerospace experts as the industry looks to more electric propulsion technologies for future aircraft. These events include the 2018 EATS, which featured four keynote addresses, an active panel session, 57 technical presentations, and over 170 attendees.
