IESF: Military & Aerospace 2013

The Integrated Electrical Solutions Forum: Military & Aerospace (IESF) presented by Mentor Graphics takes place 20 March 2013 at the Hilton Anatole in Dallas, Texas — a wonderful location, 73 degrees F and partly cloudy, for a break in the wintry weather in the Northern U.S. and Canada. This year’s tracks tackle issues related to: Electrical Distribution Systems, System Engineering, System Modeling and Analysis, Hardware Development, and PCB Systems Design & Mechanical Analysis.

One of the highlights this geek enjoys at IESF: Mil&Aero is the always entertaining and informative presentations from Richard L. Aboulafia, VP of analysis for the Teal Group. He always provides the latest and greatest industry trends in various market verticals, including military fixed- and rotary-wing aircraft, large commercial jetliners, regional aircraft, unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), and business aviation. As with most of the forum presentations, audience participation is encouraged; Q&A sessions provide answers to those burning questions conjured up during the informative talks.

Don’t miss presentations from Mentor Graphics, L-3 Link Simulation, Worldwide Certification Services, IBM, Triad Semiconductor, SAAB Aeronautics, and UTC Aerospace Systems (formerly Goodrich). Look to this geek’s blog for updates from the show as it all takes place. Have fun in Dallas and get your geek on at IESF: Military & Aerospace 2013! Register for free at
