Next Webinar: January 21 - Stratospheric Operations

Nancy Graham, formerly of ICAO and now President of Graham Aerospace, presents a talk on Stratospheric Operations.  New air vehicles and High Altitude Platform Systems (HAPS) are advancing current operations in the national and international airspace everyday.  In addition to traditional aviation companies, non aviation companies are bringing new approaches and new financing to the high altitude sector.  The extremely advanced automation capabilities HAPS use are unlike what we have seen before in aviation.  Can the aviation community use this sector to create new models of human machine teaming?  What new skills, both from regulators and industry, may be needed to cooperatively manage this airspace?

The presentation concludes with a 10-minute Tech Talk by Stephen Timm, President of Collins Aerospace: The Contactless Passenger Journey.  Steve will discuss how the industry is coming together to implement solutions right now in airports for passenger safety – solutions that allow people to travel through an airport without touching anything. He’ll share a preview of technologies under development to add additional protection measures on a plane with things like touchless lavatories, antimicrobial seats and air handling systems. And Steve will talk about the last link to enabling increased travel – a way to validate our immunity when we board a plane heading to any city around the world.
