MAHEPA presented at International Congress of Aeronautics in Rome

The XXV International Congress of Aeronautics and Astronautics, was held in Rome from September 9 to 13 2019 at the Faculty of Civil and Industrial Engineering of La Sapienza University of Rome.
At the Opening Ceremony, Prof. Mario Marchetti, Congress Chair, greeted the authorities who attended. The Ceremony concluded with greetings from the Astronaut Luca Parmitano aboard the International Space Station.
Following the tradition of A.I.D.A.A., in the afternoon all the Delegates moved to the Capitol Hill for a greeting from the Mayor of Rome. In the splendid room of the Protomoteca Hall in Campidoglio, two lectures were held: “A lost chance: The High Directorate for Studies and Testing in the Period 1927-1943” by Gen. Basilio Di Martino of the Italian Air Force; and “Science from Space: the present and the future perspectives” by Barbara Negri of the Italian Space Agency.
The activities of the Congress continued for 4 intense days with the presentation of more than 300 papers from researchers from universities, research centers and industries, regarding all scientific, aeronautical and space sectors. Project partners from Politecnico di Milano presented their work on micro-feeder hybrid-electric air transport service, performance of hydrogen-driven airplanes and energy management of serial hybrid-electric airplanes.
There were also 6 Plenary Lectures by international experts, such as Brian Cantwell, Daniele Mortari and Joseph Post (USA), Oleg Alifanov (Russian Federation), Ferri Aliabadi (U.K) and Mengu Cho (Japan), and two Round Tables, the first on “Role and activities of the Italian Aerospace Districts”, and the second on “Space Economy: women as game changers and innovators”
However, the majority of the papers were by young researchers. This is the aim of all the A.I.D.AA. Congresses: to give young people the opportunity to show their research activities in order to provide a global vision of the Italian aeronautical and space sectors.
At the end of the Technical Sessions, the eight best works of young researchers have been awarded with a Congress plaque.
The Congress ended on Friday 13 September with a visit to the Italian Air Force Historical Museum at Vigna di Valle, Bracciano.
