AESS Technical Panels

Members of AESS, what technologies do you work with?
Which would you like to work with?
Help us define and refine what we do in Technical Operations.
Please advise us on how we may better serve the membership.

What role would you like to play in Technical Panels? Is there a Technical Panel missing?
Do you want to chair an open technical panel? What about leading a Subcommittee?

Take a moment to engage - there are no shortages of opportunities to grow and learn here.

E-mail Roger Oliva, VP Tech Ops.

Greetings DASC Enthusiasts! We have exciting news! The AIAA and IEEE will be holding the 34th Digital Avionics Systems Conference (DASC) in September 2015 in the Czech Republic in picturesque Prague. As you know, the DASC is the premier annual conference to attend for all engineers and business leaders in aerospace avionics. We invite prestigious academics, avionics industry leaders and key government people to actively participate in the technical content of the conference. And, we offer a cultural program for you and your guests to experience the beauty of Prague and the surrounding area.

DASC provides authors the opportunity to present and publish to an international audience representing the field of avionics systems from research to product insertion for Manned and Unmanned Aircraft; Communications, Navigation, and Surveillance Systems; Air Traffic Management Systems; and, emerging Space Transportation Systems. We are planning a conference of technical papers, tutorials, exhibits, and special events that will make this a memorable event and draw world-wide participation. Attending in person will allow you to gain information from over 35 technical sessions consisting of over 200 papers, a tutorial program of 25 courses and a Plenary Session composed of key industry leaders discussing today’s hot topics. Start planning for this today!

We are aware of many "hot topics" being discussed in Aviation and Space today and want to focus on the ones that are of most interest to our valued attendees. Having an international global community participate with common yet unique topics of interest will provide opportunities to learn and stay ahead of societal needs for aerospace systems. We encourage you to send the Conference your most pressing "hot topic" that you would like to see discussed in any of our forums. Topics can also address tutorial courses, panel discussions and special sessions. If you are interested in being proactively involved with the planning, attending, and enjoying of the conference, send us your interest areas so that we can determine the topics of interest, new areas to consider, and contemporary issues. Please send your “hot topic” to

Please add the 34th DASC to your calendar and share this with your colleagues. Watch for updates at

I look forward to seeing everyone next year in Prague!
