CAFE's EAS VII to Be Held in April
February 7, 2013 - The seventh annual CAFE Electric Aircraft Symposium (EAS VII) will be held April 26-27 at the Flamingo Resort in Santa Rosa, California. Sponsored by the CAFE Foundation, the symposium's theme is "Transforming Transportation With Electric Aircraft."
Pioneering scientists including the top technology leaders from NASA, IBM, NREL, Stanford, MIT, and other leading universities will explore the core technologies for emission-free flying machines.
Among the featured topics slated for discussion are battery breakthroughs, ultra-capacitors, ultra-quiet propellers, motors, high lift, ESTOL charging and energy management, speed records, UAVs, electric LSAs, nano-tech structures, design software, solar capture, safety devices, and autonomous Sky Taxis. (See program schedule.)
Scheduled to appear are the two winning teams from the 2011 Green Flight Challenge, as well as the Solar Impulse team, who will present details about their electric aircraft. NASA's chief scientist will also present the latest in cutting-edge energetics.
Registration includes the opportunity to network with expert faculty at a choice of three theme dinners focused on motors, energy, and aeronautics. CAFE will also update plans for future Green Flight Challenges, plus provide a sneak peek at ultra-quiet propulsion. Register online today.
