Chair's Distinguished Lecture: Aerion: Design Technology Behind Revolutionizing Sustainable Global Mobility

Thursday, November 19, 2020
4:00-5:15 PM
Alex Egeler
EVP of Aerion Technologies

Aerion is committed to changing the face of global mobility by dramatically increasing the speed of transportation in an environmentally sustainable way. The first step towards this goal is the AS2, a carbon-neutral Mach 1.4 supersonic business jet that is slated for entry into service in 2027. To support this vision, Aerion Technologies is an innovation center located in Palo Alto, CA that develops tools and infrastructure to rapidly respond to the needs of the company and provide automation to engineering tasks and beyond. This seminar will discuss the capabilities that Aerion Technologies provides and how that enables Aerion to design the revolutionary concepts required to alter the way we think about travel.
