Compressed Hydrogen Testing on a Compressed Schedule

11 September 2024 12:00 - 12:20

How digital tools, additive manufacturing and a strong focus on system safety are allowing complex test assets to be put through their paces in record time

Todd will explain how AeroTEC recently achieved technology demonstration flights of a Bombardier Dash 8 airplane heavily modified with a hydrogen powertrain on one nacelle on a very compressed timescale. The discussion will be centered around good system safety philosophies to ensure risk mitigation and potential architectures for hydrogen powered aircraft, coupled with how the latest digital engineering tools can be used to compress product development timelines dramatically, leveraging simulation, generative design and a model-based systems engineering approach to achieve what was previously impossible.
