CD-adapco is pleased to announce that Textron AAI, NASA, Hawker Beechcraft, and Lockheed Martin will kick off its 2010 Aerospace & Defense STAR Global Forum. Representatives from each company will participate in a round-table discussion moderated by leading industry analyst, Monica Schnitger.

The panel will take a critical look at the role of engineering simulation in aerospace, and its impact on improving the overall engineering process. Furthermore, the panel will focus on the ways in which CAE technology needs to advance to keep pace with the increasing demands aerospace and defense industry.

"These conferences bring together representatives from every aspect of the industry," said David L. Vaughn, CD-adapco, Director of Aerospace and Defense Industry. "The cross pollination between missile manufacturers, land and sea defense systems, business and commercial aircraft, and tier 1 and 2 suppliers, really delivers the greatest benefits to forum attendees. While the morning round-table allows the disseminate of information on common problems across all sectors, the afternoon technical sessions will demonstrate how individual organizations are tackling problems using more sophisticated methods for handling complex geometry and meshing, and complex physics like conjugate heat transfer and multiphase flow."

In addition to the panelist discussion, the event will host general speaking session and training courses. demonstrations and workshops using the latest version of STAR-CCM+. Other participating companies include US Army TACOM, Lockheed Martin, AAI, ATA, American Dynamics, NAVAIR (Naval Air Systems Command), and NAVSEA Warfare Centers.
