The 11th edition of the world meetings of aeronautics and aerospace closed its doors on November 15, posting a very positive result.
For a first in France, in Saclay near Paris, it is a success, with:
280 participants this year, compared to 150 last year,
30 countries represented (for around 20 last year), including Japan, China, Russia, the United States, Israel and Germany, in particular, among the most representative countries of the global aeronautics industry .
Co-organized by the Cofrend (French Confederation for Non-Destructive Tests) and the CEA List, this event supported by Safran and Airbus, confirms France's place in innovation in non-destructive testing (NDT) in aerospace. The richness of the industrial fabric attracted participants, who came to discover the latest technological advances in digital simulation, automation and connectivity.
Indeed, for three days, the exchanges between academics and industrialists in the field of NDT for aerospace have allowed us to project ourselves into a future imbued with the digital transition. Among the major themes highlighted this year is digital simulation, the importance of which is confirmed in particular with the development of learning algorithms that will eventually enable automated diagnostics. The SHM (Structural Health Monitoring) is another topic of interest put forward by stakeholders.
