Electric & Hybrid Aerospace Technology Symposium: New Speakers added!


Several new speakers have been added to the line-up for the forthcoming Electric & Hybrid Aerospace Technology Symposium, the world’s leading international conference dedicated to ultra-low-emission aircraft technology and full-electric flight, which takes place on November 8-9 in Cologne, Germany.

Joining a program already packed full of the aerospace industry’s leading experts on electric and hybrid systems are David Debney, chief of future aircraft concepts, Rolls-Royce; Ben Schiltgen, vice president of finance and aerospace engineer, Empirical Systems Aerospace; and Frank Anton, executive vice president of eAircraft, Siemens.

Debney’s presentation will focus on the opportunities and challenges of electric vertical take-off and landing (eVTOL) aircraft, including the latest on the Rolls-Royce eVTOL concept revealed at this year’s Farnborough Air Show.

Rolls-Royce’s eVTOL concept is powered by a M250 gas turbine which delivers around 500kW of electrical power

Ben Schiltgen’s presentation will lay out the latest aircraft concepts being developed to meet NASA’s energy and emissions reduction goals, including split-wing turboelectric propulsion systems. Frank Anton’s presentation will feature the latest on Siemens’ eAircraft project.

The full program of more than 45 speakers can be viewed on the symposium’s website. The agenda covers every aspect of the fast-paced development of hybrid propulsion and electrical subsystem architecture or More Electric Aircraft (MEA), from presentations on the latest battery and motor technologies to best design practices and safety regulations.

Now in its fourth year, the Electric & Hybrid Aerospace Technology Symposium has firmly established itself as the premier event for high-level aerospace engineers and leading research academics working on the technology and systems needed to enable a more-electric future for aviation.

Visitors to the Electric & Hybrid Aerospace Technology Symposium will also be able to meet more than 20 industry partners and technology suppliers in the exhibitor zone and join well over 200 attendees for two days of high-level networking and knowledge sharing.
