Third Annual FCAAP Symposium & Exhibition
We cordially invite you to participate in the Third Annual FCAAP Symposium & Exhibition, sponsored by the Florida Center for Advanced Aero-Propulsion, a multi-university state-sponsored center of excellence. The meeting will be held on April 26-27, 2012, in Tallahassee, Florida. Leaders from state, national and international aerospace and aviation industries as well as representatives from the state legislature and Governor’s Office will gather for in-depth discussions on the direction and future of aerospace, aviation, and related industries. Overcoming both current and future challenges to grow, this sector will require meaningful partnerships between industry, universities, and government agencies. We anticipate that this symposium will be an ideal forum for such an exchange of ideas.
We are very pleased to note that this symposium will be hosted at our new home: The Aero-Propulsion, Mechatronics and Energy Building (AME), which serves as the headquarters for FCAAP. AME is a brand new, 60,000+-square-foot, state-of-the-art facility that supports research in aerospace, aviation, mechatronics (robotics), and sustainable energy engineering. It is also the home to our (NSF sponsored) polysonic wind tunnel (Mach 0.2 – 5) as well as other wind tunnels, jet facilities, and actuator and diagnostic development facilities.
Topics discussed at the symposium will include smart/advanced materials, actuator and sensor design, subsonic and supersonic flow and noise control, high performance computing, as well as a host of other areas relevant to the industry. These projects are a critical part of the Center’s mission to advance education and research, and promote industrial and economic growth in Florida and nationwide. We sincerely hope you will be able to attend this Technical Symposium. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.
