Aerospace Testing Expo North America 2006, taking place on the 14th, 15th and 16th November 2006 is the continent's LARGEST specialist event for test solutions, equipment, technologies and services in aerospace testing. This year's show includes the biggest names throughout the industry, who will be displaying the very latest technologies! Five separate divisions of NASA (NASA Aeronautics Test Program, NASA Ames Research Center, NASA Dryden Research Center, NASA Glenn Research Center and NASA Plum Brook Station) will be represented at Aerospace Testing Expo North America 2006. In addition the US Air Force's full test and evaluation capabilities will be on display in the key areas of aerodynamics, aero-propulsion, space and missile testing.
Over 300 international suppliers including Lockheed Martin Missiles, Honeywell Sensotec, Olympus Industrial and High Rely, will also be showcasing their latest developments. Three of the industry firsts, being launched at Aerospace Testing Expo 2006 are:- Logic Instrument's completely self-contained, fully-rugged field-portable PXI test platform, the TextraRPC PXI; Metis Design Corporation's 'Custom Sensor Solutions' service and ALLPRO Imaging, USA and Durr NDT, Germany's Digital Radiography for NDT applications.
If you and your team of work colleagues need a way of letting off steam how about considering becoming members of The Rocket Racing League (in the SF area of the show). This new aerospace entertainment organisation owned by F-16 pilot and US fighter squadron reservist Dag Grantham combines the competition of racing with the excitement of rocketry and involves flying at speeds of 200-300mph on courses approximately 2 miles long, one mile wide and about 5,000 feet high, running perpendicular to spectators!
World-class, free-of-charge forums
Visitors can 'pick and choose' from a wide range of free-to-attend presentations taking place in three separate auditoriums with the themes Development testing and evaluation, Production quality testing, measurement and inspection and Maintenance testing, inspection and engineering. Highlights include:
• Ed Shadle's presentation on the many facets of designing, building and testing 'The North American Eagle' with which he's hoping to reach speeds of 800mph in order to break the current world land speed record.
• Paul Achtellik's (Naval Air Warfare Center Aircraft Division) description of his cutting edge Electromagnetic Vunerability test of the RQ-4A Global Hawk Maritime Demonstration aircraft.
Additional presentations and on-site training features include the SFTE/SETP Flight Testing Seminar, IA Renewal Maintenance Symposium and DO-178B training seminar.
Aerospace Design Expo 2006, taking place in the adjoining hall also has four 'free to attend' open technology forums showing the very latest designs, tools, materials and design engineering component technologies.
Parallel 'fee-paying' conferences
Anaheim will also host two major new specialist fee-paying conferences, running in parallel with Aerospace Testing Expo 2006 & Aerospace Design Expo 2006.
1) Integrated Condition Management investigates the technical challenges and capabilities in response to increasing integration requirements in health management, diagnostics and prognostics in civil, military and space aviation.
2) Greener Civil Aviation will bring together the environmental and industry bodies concerned with civil aviation and to will discuss achievable technical solutions and the way forward for the industry.
Aerospace Testing Expo 2005, North America heads for Long Beach, CA, Nov. 8 - 10.
The week-long courses will be instructed by John Saunders at Wichita Area Technical College’s Comotara Center campus.
