Attended by over
120 delegates, primarily from Canada but also from the USA and Europe,
the Workshop succeeded in establishing a high level of interest in microsystems
technologies and developments across the Canadian aerospace community
associated with this field. The interest generated by the excellent
presentations, encompassing the design, fabrication and application
of MEMS technology for aerospace structures, has resulted in fruitful
discussions during and toward the end of the event.
Bill Tang (DARPA, USA), Dan Gale (CMC), Wanping Zheng (Canadian Space
Agency), Iaon Sabau (Pratt & Whitney Canada), Thomas George (JPL-NASA),
Sebastian Dominguez (MEMScap), Muthukumaran Packirisamy (OPTENIA), Mike
Denhoff (NRC, Canada), Ken Westra (University of Alberta) and Brian
Moore (Bigbandwidth) all helped make this workshop a highly interactive
and successful event.
Highlights of the
discussions included Hany Moustafa's (Pratt & Whitney Canada) views
on the potential for the aerospace industry's involvement in the development
of MEMS technology for aerospace applications, as well as Ayman El-Fatatry's
(BAE SYSTEMS, UK) perspectives on the potential opportunities available
to Canada within NEXUS.
