10:15 am - 10:45 am Take me higher

Let us take you back to your childhood! With your group, construct a paper plane, and nominate a pilot. The plane that flies furthest, wins!

10:45 am - 11:15 am Coffee break and networking

New possibilities in aircraft design due to electrification

11:15 am - 11:45 am Integrated propulsion, power and thermal early during air vehicle conceptual design: NATO STO AVT-333 activity upgrade

Current common practice in air vehicle design follows the path of largely independent propulsion power and thermal management subsystem design
•Traditional design process often fails to return a closed solution leading to insufficient power or thermal management capacity
•cost to deal with these problems late in the design process is unacceptably expensive
•To minimize these difficulties in future air vehicle design, the propulsion, power and thermal management subsystems, and other vehicle systems must all be appropriately coupled

11:45 am - 12:15 pm Towards sizing and simulation of electrified vehicle concepts and systems

The presentation will cover recent and ongoing efforts at the VSDDL pertaining to
• Enable conceptual design phase sizing, performance analyses, and trade studies for novel
aircraft configurations and systems architectures
• Analyze the stability and control characteristics of such configurations
• Progress towards facilitating a pilot/operator-in-the-loop flight simulation capability for
conventional and novel aircraft configurations

Developments in energy storage for MEA

12:15 pm - 12:45 pm Material science answers to aircraft electrification challenges

• Dow has been committed to supporting the aerospace market since its first involvement with
silicones for aviation in 1943.
• Dow has developed a comprehensive product portfolio supporting demanding applications
like power electronics, batteries, charging units and more
• Many of these developments have come from cross-industry expertise, including not only
aviation but also transportation in the broader sense
• With increasing needs for effective thermal management, EMI shielding and sensitive
component protection, Dow solutions can be helpful in the aviation industry

12:45 pm - 2:15 pm Network luncheon

2:15 pm - 2:45 pm Health Monitoring and prognostics for safer and more efficient batteries for more electric aircrafts

•Health monitoring of energy systems is key to EA )electric aircraft) systems
•Prognostics enable the pilot/operator to know the future state of the system
•Known future health state helps is taking better decisions
•Both combined can help in keeping the EA system, as well as airspace safe
•Both combined can help in keeping the EA system as well as airspace safe

2:45 pm - 3:15 pm Towards high energy density batteries for hybrid electric and all electric airplane applications

• One specific area which will enable significant advances in the electrification of aircraft is
batteries and energy storage technologies.
• This presentation will highlight the current state and the art, and outline future challenges in
battery technology which need to be overcome to meet the requirements for future hybrid
electric and all electric airplane applications.
• Leveraging developments in adjacent industries such as automotive / electric vehicles,
ambitious targets for electric airplane applications are presented
