Call for Papers AVT-323 Research Symposium on Hybrid/Electric Aero-Propulsion Systems for Military Applications

Monday, 07. October 2019 until Wednesday, 09. October 2019 08:00 - 17:30

Abstract Submission Deadline: 12 November 2018

Framework of the Meeting

The Applied Vehicle Technology Panel of the NATO Science and Technology Organization is convening under its Propulsion and Power Systems Focus a Research Symposium on the subject of “Hybrid/Electric Aero-Propulsion Systems for Military Application”. The meeting is open to NATO NATIONS and ENHANCED OPPORTUNITY PARTNERS, and, is classified as NATO UNCLASSIFIED OPEN to AUS, FIN, and SWE. The Research Symposium is to be held in Trondheim, Norway, 07-09 October 2019 during the fall 2019 AVT Panel Business Meeting Week. The three day Research Symposium is planned to have 27 papers. Proceedings (with ISBN) will be produced containing all submitted technical papers presented at the event. Full Research Symposium proceedings will be published on the STO website:

General Scope and Meeting Objectives

The objective of this Research Symposium is to convene an international array of scientists and engineers together with other important stakeholders with intent to cover aspects associated with the design, qualification/certification and operation of future aircraft utilising hybrid/electric and coupled aero-propulsion technologies. The context is to familiarise all participants with what technical aspects should be considered when aiming to create effective, efficient and agile NATO aerial vehicles. The outcome of this Symposium will serve as an important input for another STO activity (AVT-RTG-310) focussing on the development of a roadmap towards demonstrator applications for such aerial vehicles.

Research Symposium Topics

The Research Symposium covers categories of Hybrid/All-Electric and Partial/Full Turbo-electric architectures suitable for the contemporary range of military applications.

 Papers are invited in the eight areas of:

  • Hybrid/Electric Propulsion Systems Architectures 
  • Electrical Energy Storage, Power Management and Distribution
  • Electrical Machines and Power Electronics –
  • Integrated Thermal Regulation and Control Systems 
  • Integrated Vehicle Design –
  • Synergistic Aero-propulsion Technologies 
  • Future Operational Applications 
  • Requirements, Regulations and Qualification/Certification 

All details about the event, deadlines and schedule, as well as the abstract and paper format requirements are provided in the PDF document "Call for Paper" on the right.
