AIAA/IEEE Electric Aircraft Technologies Symposium (EATS)

Building upon the past successful events, the 2021 Electric Aircraft Technologies Symposium will look at progress over the past year and continue the discussion about the aerospace industry goals for future aircraft. To accommodate rapid growth in emerging markets and ensure sustainability of air travel, one approach being explored is using nontraditional aircraft propulsion: electric, turboelectric, or hybrid/electric powertrains. AIAA and IEEE crafted this unique symposium to bring the aerospace engineers and the electrical engineers together to discuss these topics and their challenges.

Continuing in 2021, EATS will be continuing the AIAA/IEEE EATS Student Design Challenge.  Click here for additional information.

For 2021, EATS will encompass three days of panel sessions, keynote addresses and technical sessions. Papers for the 2021 event will be solicited in all relevant areas including, but  not  limited to, the following: 

  • Hybrid/Electric Propulsion Systems Architectures
  • Electrical Energy Generation and Storage (including battery, fuel cell, solar, turbo-electric, and others)
