Dear AATT PIs and AFRL/FAA/NASA Colleagues,

You are cordially invited to attend the Advanced Air Transport Technology (AATT) Hybrid Gas-Electric Propulsion NRA Awards Review on Wednesday, October 5, and Thursday, October 6, 2016, at the Ohio Aerospace Institute (OAI) in Cleveland, OH.

On Oct. 5, four research teams – UTRC, Rolls-Royce LibertyWorks, the U. of Illinois, and Ohio State U. – will present their Phase 2, Year 2 findings on Hybrid Electric Concepts & Motor Development. On Oct. 6, GE Global Research, Boeing Inc., and the U. of Illinois will present their Phase 1, Year 1 findings on Inverters.

The objective for this review is to share progress and research results to benefit the broad aeronautics community. The research teams will present a summary of accomplishments to a forum of subject matter experts, colleagues, AATT project team members, and the aeronautics community.

If you plan to attend this review on either day, in person or via WebEx, please register by COB Friday, September 30.

Note: If you are a foreign national and wish to attend in person, you must register no later than Sunday, Sept. 25.
