The symposium is a hybrid event, taking place both in London and online via our virtual conference platform!

Reduce product failures, compress development cycles, and increase performance and efficiency

Bringing the pages of Aerospace Testing International to life, the Symposium will focus on aircraft, UAVs, and airborne defense system, NDT, NVH measurement, emission testing, quality and durability testing, product validation, and data acquisition and management.

From 29-30 September 2021, the Aerospace Testing Symposium will bring together aerospace component, aircraft manufacturers and air-defense system makers to discuss technologies, techniques, and services that will reduce product development cycles and costs as well as improve performance and reliability.

The symposium, which will also feature a wide range of companies exhibiting their latest and next-generation aerospace testing systems and services, tackles the fact that the industry has faced two great challenges in recent history: one being increased scrutiny on product-development procedures and the other being the need to reduce development costs without reducing performance, durability or quality.

What to expect?

Delegates can expect to see presentations from some of the best-known, most-qualified experts on aerospace testing procedures, hacks, and technologies. The focus is on testing and validation technologies and services that include but are limited to NDT, simulation, modeling, NVH, emissions, quality and durability, engines, data acquisition and telemetry, as well as flight and performance testing. Presentations will cover both component and complete-aircraft testing. 

With key figures from research associations, testing houses, and aircraft manufacturers presenting papers on testing case studies and innovative testing procedures and technologies, attending the Aerospace Testing Symposium can help you make informed decisions on what technologies and systems to invest in as well as improve your product performance and durability.

The Symposium will be co-located with London to Sydney in five hours: the future of aviation, a conference that is dedicated to the development and fruition of supersonic and hypersonic commercial flight technologies. Delegates will be able to participate in both conferences at no extra cost.

How to attend the Aerospace Testing Symposium:

While the UK will be able to safely host physical events come September 2021, we realize that several other countries may have travel restrictions in place. Therefore we are enabling people to attend Aerospace Testing Symposium either physically or virtually.

All content and networking sessions will be available live on our cutting-edge virtual platform, but delegates attending in-person, i.e. in the spectacular London County Hall, will benefit from being able to see a wide range of companies exhibiting their latest and next-generation aerospace testing systems and services.

Please contact us for more information or if you have any questions.
