Noon – 1:00 pm, Rayburn 2261
Using 3D printing to reduce costs and increase the speed of mass-produced airplanes. Exploring new ways to use robotics to improve aviation-related manufacturing processes that enhance the safety of human workers. Examining the use of liquid hydrogen in fuel cells that generate electricity in order to power an electrically driven aircraft propulsion system.
NASA Aeronautics is giving three U.S. universities nearly $15 million over the next three years for their unique proposals to solving aviation challenges. Each university identified its own challenge and now will lead the technical work alongside a supporting cast of multidisciplinary teams composed of partners from other universities and industry, especially those who have not traditionally applied their skills to aviation problems.
Hear about these three teams, their projects, and the benefits of the University Leadership Initiative for sustained U.S. leadership in aviation. Team leads are the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, University of Wisconsin-Madison and Carnegie Mellon University.
