  • [ZOOM Meeting] Aerion: Design Technology Behind Revolutionizing Sustainable Global Mobility

    Thursday, May 20, 2021 at 6:00 PDT
    Guest Speaker: Mr. Alex Egeler

    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 presentation 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.

    Mr. Alex Egeler is the EVP of Aerion Technologies, leading the team in Palo Alto, CA. He has worked at Aerion for 7 years, starting as a software developer and inlet designer. His background is in aerodynamic shape optimization, with a B.S. in Mechanical Engineering from Johns Hopkins University and an M.S. in Aero/Astro Engineering from Stanford. He also worked in underwater missile launching systems at Northrop Grumman for nine (9) years with a focus on systems engineering and analysis software development.

    Is a civilian supersonic transport aircraft a worthwhile endeavor for the United States? Justify your position. Consider: Were there any challenges or issues that influenced your position? What are the potential advantages or disadvantages of having such capabilities?  Who should be involved in its development (e.g., government agencies, private companies, or some combination)? What would be the roles and responsibilities of those involved?
