Aerospace Test & Development Show unveils full agenda for September 2023 event in Toulouse


The agenda and speaker lineup for the much-anticipated Aerospace Test & Development Show, which takes place at the MEETT Exhibition Centre in Toulouse, France on September 19-20, has been revealed.

The industry-leading event is expected to draw thousands of industry professionals to view and discuss the latest advances in aerospace testing and development technologies and techniques. Indeed, close to 100 suppliers of testing equipment and services companies are expected to sign up to exhibit, each showcasing the latest solutions to reduce product failure, decrease product development cycles and costs, and improve performance and reliability in aircraft, spacecraft, drones and eVTOL aircraft.

Alongside the exhibition, visitors to the Aerospace Test & Development Show can take part in the Open Tech Forum, a no-cost conference that features two full days of content with over 30 expert speakers discussing a range of key industry topics relevant to testing and development.

Areas to be covered include novel propulsion technology, new aircraft types, and autonomy as well as flight testing instrumentation, NDT and structural testing.

Ben Sampson, editor of Aerospace Testing International said, “Taking inspiration from our magazine, the Open Tech Forum will be the most exciting place to hear about and discuss the cutting-edge technologies and best practices enabling aeronautical innovation today.

“With speakers from organizations including Airbus, Rolls-Royce, GE Aerospace, Volocopter and the European Space Agency, startups up like Autoflight, Destinus and Daedalean as well as leading testing suppliers like NI, HBK and Element, we are covering all parts of the aerospace sector involved in test and development.”


Key Highlights of the Agenda:

Flight testing: Jim Fawcett, Lead Flight Test Engineer at Airbus will give an exclusive behind-the-scenes look at flight testing activities at the European aircraft manufacturer.

Electric and Hydrogen Propulsion: Adam Harris, global chief of test facilities at Rolls-Royce will update on the engine manufacturer’s gaseous hydrogen engine technology demonstration

eVTOL aircraft: Mark Henning, managing director of Autoflight Europe, will discuss the development of a new eVTOL aircraft based and how the lack of established procedures and simulations for eVTOL development makes the process challenging

Modeling and Simulation: Discuss why measuring maturity is vital to the future use of 3D models in aerospace with Florent Mathieu, CEO of Eikosim

Hypersonics: Destinus’ senior business development Manager Martina Löfqvist discusses the startup’s hypersonic aircraft development roadmap

Panel Discussions and Forums: Engaging panel discussions and forums will facilitate discussions on critical topics, such as digital twins, sustainable aviation and electric aircraft development

Networking Opportunities: With attendees from all corners of the aerospace sector, the Aerospace Test & Development Show will offer unparalleled networking prospects. Participants can forge new connections, explore potential business partnerships, and exchange ideas with like-minded professionals.
