Ultraefficient Aircraft Technologies-Key Building Blocks on the Way to Sustainable Flight, Mini Symposium, 19/05/2022 @ EcoMaT

Mini Symposium in cooperation between the DGLR (Faculty L2 – Manned Aircraft) and the Air and Space Academy
 

Ultra-efficient aircraft technologies for low drag, low weight and low specific fuel consumption are more important than ever to master the challenge towards more sustainable flight. Significant efficiency improvements are mandatory to limit the fuel consumption for next generation aircraft, either to drastically reduce the CO2 impact from still fossile kerosene based propulsion or to mitigate the drawback from the significant affordability challenge of novel zero emission fuels (SAF or H2).
Besides this efficiency challenge also a the capability for more flexible flight trajectories is key, to mitigate non-CO2 impacts on global warming (such as contrails) and to drastically cut noise emissions
Nevertheless, full compliance in terms of certifiability, manageable manufacturing costs and full operational compatibility with the air transport system are crucial requirements to ensure economically viable future products.

👉On this mini symposium a group of experts from DLR, Airbus, Bauhaus Luftfahrt, Universities and DGLR & AAE will present and discuss the challenges and latest technological initiatives and developments in short lectures and pitches. An extensive podium discussion with the lectures and the audience will conclude the symposium.
