Aviation remain for the next decades a vital sector of our society in providing services to the citizen, bringing people together and delivering goods through seamless, safe and secure cost effective transport chains.
One of the major goals of the Flight Path Vision 2050 is to protect the environment and the energy supply. It is now well understood by the scientific and industrial communities that the technology development has to reduce drastically the environmental impacts due to the effects of increasing traffic levels.
Future 2050 technologies target a 75% reduction of CO2 emissions, a 90% reduction of NOx emissions and a 65% reduction of the perceived noise of flying aircraft.
Four Senior technologists representatives of European Aeronautical and Aero Engines Industries and Research Institutes linked to the organizing European Aeronautical Associations will be invited in this two hours STS session to deliver lectures featuring substantial developments or needs in innovative digital civil aircraft and aero engines design allowing significant and continuous improvements about fuel quality, drag and noise level emission reductions.
The Flight Path 2050 vision considered in this STS targets innovative technologies for a better friendly environment.
