3rd ESTECO Aerospace MDO Technology Days

29 - 30 Jun 2021
Ronald Reagan Presidential Library - Los Angeles, CA, USA

On 29 and 30 June 2021, the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library in Los Angeles, CA will host the third edition of the ESTECO Aerospace MDO Technology Days.

This in-person only event brings together experts from different companies in the aerospace industry. From Raytheon Missiles & Defense to Otto Aviation to the National Institute for Aviation Research (NIAR), we’ve invited a selection of our customers to share their experience with Multidisciplinary Design Optimization, Simulation Process Data Management and Distributed Execution and we’ve asked them to outline engineering trends in their fields.

The COVID-19 pandemic, rising geopolitical tensions and climate change awareness are bringing big changes to aircraft development, with massive implications both on commercial and military aviation. With governments pushing for innovation in alternative technologies and the market calling for new, affordable and greener aviation options, the need for faster development is a major challenge in the industry and requires a technological and cultural shift.

From traditional fighters to UAS to hybrid/electric flight, innovation comes through a new digital engineering approach which enables server-based collaboration at an enterprise level and scales up MDO across the entire organization. Join us in Los Angeles and learn how our VOLTA platform has been key to this result in different domains and applications.

On June 29, a full day agenda will include presentations from industry, such as Raytheon Missiles & Defense, Otto Aviation and the National Institute for Aviation Research, along with demonstrations and development updates by ESTECO experts.

On June 30, you can join us for a VOLTA workshop and learn how enterprise collaboration on MDO projects is completely redefined.

The venue offers an added bonus for aviation enthusiasts. The event attendees we'll have the opportunity to take a closer look at the historic Boeing 707 Air Force One 27000 used by Ronald Reagan and many U.S. Presidents and to visit the library’s new F-117 Nighthawk Stealth Fighter exhibit.

Please note that attendance is limited to 50 people to ensure physical distancing and a safe experience for everyone. save your seat now.
