Forum Munich Aerospace: Summer semester 2024

Today we present the new program for the Forum Munich Aerospace in the summer semester 2024! In the summer semester, you can expect a varied program of exciting lectures and a discussion round on the topic of FCAS. All events are open to students as well as interested participants from industry, research and the public. After the presentations, we look forward to an exchange over beer and pretzels!

We start on 29.04.2024 with a lecture by Prof. Dr. Chiara Manfletti on the topic “Autonomy and Sustainability in Space“:

To make the most of Space, autonomy is key as well as the ability to self-sustain. Harnessing solar energy and in-space resources holds the potential to establish a renewable and self-sustainable mobility infrastructure, offering substantial benefits for satellites. To solve these challenges, our initiative – Solar for Ice to Thrust – S4I2T aspires to develop an innovative solar electric water propulsion system that is cost-effective, inherently eco-friendly and outperforms conventional solutions. To further leverage launch mass savings and enabling satellite lifetime extensions, we want to use the simplicity of water as a propellant (extracted through ISRU) to introduce autonomous spacecraft docking and propellant re-filling with the goal to enhance the economic and environmental sustainability. The potential of AI in addressing sustainability, safety and security in space is also explored.
