AESS Technical Panels
Technical Operations is responsible for oversight of the Technical Panels for the AESS Board of Governors.
The panels hold multiple meetings per year throughout the world, typically where conferences relevant to their technical interests are taking place. Creation of IEEE standards and support of IEEE Conferences are major thrust of technical panels. Each panel operates under its own charter and bylaws. Be sure to click the appropriate Technical Panel link below for more information on that panel. Please contact Walt Downing, VP Technical Operations, the Technical Panel Chairs or any member of the Board of Governors if you're interested in participating in the work of a technical panel.

Spotlight on Technical Panels
The Avionics Systems Technical Panel (ASTP) was created to support and expand AESS activities in avionics. These include software and hardware integration, FACE, IMA and crew interaction/automatic operations. The committee supports the Digital Avionics Systems Conference (DASC) and Integrated Communications, Navigation and Surveillance Conference (ICNS). The ASTP identifies speakers for the conferences; authors for Systems Magazine and coordinates on areas of joint interest with other panels. The committee meets 2 times a year, at ICNS in April and DASC in the September/October timeframe. Read more
Unmanned Aerospace Vehicles
Aerospace & Electronic Systems society UAV/UAS Technical Panel 2015 Project
Objective: Three separate locations Fraunhofer FKIE Wachtberg, Germany; Jackson State University, Jackson, Mississippi and Missouri University of Science & Technology, Rolla, Missouri to participate in a "round-robin" flight characteristics performance testing of three type of small unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) - helicopter, quadrotor and fixed wing to generate interest and promote UAS to AESS members to encourage "hands-on activities" and support of safe integration of UAS into US Airspace.

The Aerospace & Electronic Systems Society has a number of conferences addressing important aspects of our field of interest. A comprehensive listing of our conferences can be found by visiting our website. Members are encouraged to submit papers, attend conferences, and network with colleagues in your shared area of interest.
The 2016 IEEE Aerospace Conference will be held in Big Sky, Montana on 5-12 March 2016. The annual, week-long conference, set in a stimulating and thought-provoking environment, is designed for aerospace experts, academics, military personnel, and industry leaders. The 2016 conference is the 36th in the conference series. For more information and submission deadlines, please visit the Aerospace Conference website.
The 2016 IEEE/ION PLANS 2016 will be held in Savannah, GA, USA on 11-14 April 2016. The Position Location and Navigation Symposium (PLANS) is a biennial technical conference that occurs in the spring of even numbered years. Our mission is to provide a forum to share the latest advances in navigation technology. For more information, please visit the PLANS 2016 website.
The 2016 IEEE Radar Conference will be held in Philadelphia, PA, USA 2-6 May 2016. Join us in Philadelphia and participate in advancing radar science by participating in the IEEE Radar 2016 conference appropriately themed "Enabling Technologies for Advances in Radar.” For more information and submission deadlines, please visit the Radar 2016 website.
The 3rd IEEE International Workshop on Metrology for AeroSpace will be held in Florence, Italy 22-23 June 2016. Following the success of the first two editions of IEEE International Workshop on Metrology for Aerospace (MetroAeroSpace), it was considered convenient to promote a third edition of this event, which aims at reinforcing and supporting the collaborations among people working in developing instrumentation and measurement methods for aerospace. Find information on the call for papers on our website. The submission deadline is 22 January 2016.
AUTOTESTCON 2016 will be held in Anaheim, California 12-15 September 2016. AUTOTESTCON is the world's premier conference that brings together the military/aerospace automatic test industry and government/military acquirers and users to share new technologies, discuss innovative applications, and exhibit products and services. It is sponsored annually by the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE). View the call for papers, the submission deadline is 15 March 2016.
The 2016 IEEE/AIAA 35th Digital Avionics Systems Conference (DASC) will be held in Sacramento, CA 25-30 September 2016. The DASC is the premier annual conference providing authors an opportunity for publication and presentation to an international audience of papers encompassing the field of avionics systems for aircraft/rotorcraft/unmanned aircraft (commercial, military, business and general aviation), navigation, communications (all bands voice/sensor/data), sensors, crew interface, avionics architectures, software, and space and ground components needed for the safe operation of commercial and military aircraft, and space systems. The abstract submission deadline is 12 March 2016.
The 2016 European Navigation Conference (ENC) will be held in Helsinki, Finland 30 May - 2 June 2016. To find more information, please visit the ENC 2016 website. View the Call For Papers. The submission deadline is 15 January 2016.
