Presentations & Discussions led by Aircraft Manufacturers, Upstarts, SPACs and Tech Companies that are trying to Disrupt the Paradigm 

Event Sponsors

​Examine the Next-Generation of Opportunities in Sustainable Aviation, Hybrid, All-Electric & Green Hydrogen Aircraft Technology​

All-Electric & Hybrid Aircraft applications demand high reliability, high availability, and high power density. They do this while also aiming to reduce weight, complexity, fuel consumption, operational costs, and environmental impact. New electric driven systems are being developed to meet these requirements and provide significant technical and economic improvements over conventional mechanical, hydraulic, or pneumatic systems.

This online event will bring together stakeholders along the whole supply chain to discuss the fast-paced developments for all-electric and hybrid aircraft architectures, and systems and components. It also takes on related technological challenges and opportunities right up to commercial viability, with the overall goal to support the industry on next generation aircraft design that features improved fuel efficiency and reduced environmental impact.

Event Agenda - july 28 & 29, 2021

Wednesday July 28, 2021
 
9AM – 9:50AM EST
URBAN AIR MOBILITY 
SUSTAINABLE APPROACHES FOR DEVELOPING THE NEXT-GENERATION OF HYBRID AND ALL-ELECTRIC AIRCRAFTS

Neil Cloughley, CEO & Founder, Faradair
 
9:50AM – 10:20AM EST
ROBUST EARLY DETECTION OF BATTERY THERMAL RUNAWAY
Robust Early Detection of Battery Thermal Runaway (REDTR) is comprised of a suite of sensor elements within a surface mounted electronics module that can detect initial venting of lithium ion battery cells within 3 to 5 seconds within the battery enclosure independent of the battery electrochemistry, cell size, and pack venting strategy. The sensor suite only needs to be within the battery pack vapor space for proper detection, and while consuming minimal power, can act as an alarm system for the BMS under all operating conditions. REDTR can observe multiple physical phenomenon from a failing cell to indicate first vent as well as observe and quantify whether the runaway is propagating through the pack, allowing OEM's the best opportunity to provide rapid countermeasures to protect the pack.
