Nanomaterials are being applied to the aerospace and defense industries worldwide,
with significant growing trends over the next 30 years. However, university researchers
and small companies working to develop nanomaterials to create advanced applications
for the aerospace & defense industries need to understand:

  • How different areas of nonmaterial’s apply to Aerospace and Defense?
  • What are some of the key considerations associated with introducing these materials?
  • What are some of the factors involved in scale-up and qualification? and
  • What future impacts these materials may have on these sectors?

In this webinar, we will examine and discuss the unique physical and chemical properties
that occur at the Nanoscale and how these properties can be used to create advanced
applications; demonstrate, through case studies, how nonmaterial’s are being used
in the aerospace and defense industry, e.g. from development to implementation on
the spacecraft; and Predict future trends and applications of nonmaterial’s, e.g.
Graphene to replace carbon nanotubes in carbon-based electronics, role of nanotechnology
in the affordability crisis, etc.

Who Should Attend

We expect that these Webinar’s will help technology developers (Universities and
small companies) better understand the Aerospace Industry end-user needs and plan
their R&D, product development activities accordingly, as well train the existing
workforce in the aerospace industry to work with nanomaterials.

These webinars are designed for both individual and group participation and would
make an excellent university-sponsored (professors, researchers and graduate students)
company-sponsored, in-house training event.
