0800-1700Designing Unmanned Aircraft Systems (NEW!)
SESSION DESCRIPTION: 

This 2-day course will provide a comprehensive treatment of the major disciplines that drive unmanned aircraft design. The class closely follows the book, Designing Unmanned Aircraft Systems: A Comprehensive Approach, which is included with registration. It investigates all elements of the design process, including architectural options and design drivers across diverse system classes. The course provides a comprehensive understanding of the end-to-end unmanned aircraft system and a deeper appreciation for the multidisciplinary nature of UAS design. In addition to covering traditional aircraft design disciplines, the instruction will explore other disciplines that are important to UAS design such as launch and recovery systems, communication systems, payloads, and ground systems.  Attendees will gain an understanding of the wide range of UAS ranging from micro air vehicles to large high-altitude systems.

0800-1700Hypersonic Flight: Propulsion Requirements and Vehicle Design (NEW!)
SESSION DESCRIPTION: 

Development of hypersonic air-breathing propulsion (HAP) is crucial to extend the flight regime of aircraft, and to develop revolutionary reliable, affordable, routine Earth-to-orbit spacecraft. The performance advantages of HAP vehicles are dependent upon advances in current state-of-the-art technologies in many areas such as ram/scramjet/rocket propulsion integration, high temperature materials, thermal protection systems, and overall vehicle control. Moreover, the complex interactions between elements of a HAP vehicle represent a new paradigm in vehicle synthesis to achieve the optimal performance necessary to meet aerospace mission objectives. This course provides the technical background in hypersonics and highlights the vehicle design methodology required to achieve the mission objectives of hypersonic flight.

    1530-1700Ignite the "Meet"ing
    SESSION DESCRIPTION: 

    Nothing can be more intimidating than being a newcomer or young person at a conference or event where everyone already knows one another! At this high-energy and fun workshop, attendees will gather tips and techniques on networking and relationship building that will make the event more enjoyable and productive. We’ll focus in on creating an introduction, understanding how to engage with others, playing off the unique networking styles of introverts and extroverts, and some of the absolute do nots of networking. Then the interaction kicks in with an activity designed to foster quick friendships so that throughout the conference the participants will never enter a session or party where they are the stranger!

    1700-1830Meet the Employers Recruiting Event
    SESSION DESCRIPTION: 

    This event offers students and young professionals the opportunity to meet AIAA corporate members and government agencies. This is a fun and dynamic environment where students and professionals interact with organizations regarding employment opportunities. Participating companies/organizations will present a brief organizational overview and opportunities available, then have follow-on discussions with the attendees. Organizations will host a table and attendees will switch every 10 minutes.
