MathWorks Brings Together Aerospace, Defense Experts for Conference

5/5/2003 - The MathWorks announced that its International Aerospace and Defense Conference (MIADC) will take place June 3 June 5, 2003. The event, which includes a one-day symposium and a two-day leadership council near the Company's headquarters in Natick, MA, will bring together experts from around the world and across the industry. The MathWorks customers including NASA, EADS, Lockheed Martin, U.S Navy, and BAE Systems will describe how they successfully leveraged the Company's industry-standard MATLAB® and Simulink® software solutions.

The opening day of MIADC will feature a keynote address "Universal Analysis Tool for NASA's Expendable Launch Vehicle," by Dr. Richard Gran, veteran Northrop Grumman executive scientist and now president of the Mathematical Analysis Company. Gran was also a member of the engineering team that developed the autopilot for the Apollo Lunar Lander in the 1960s.

The second segment of MIADC features a two-day leadership council where customers and partners are provided with an open forum to articulate the needs and requirements that their companies have for products and technologies. Representatives from The MathWorks will demonstrate common applications of MATLAB and Simulink to overcome aerospace and defense system development challenges. Additionally, The MathWorks Connections partners that serve the aerospace and defense community will exhibit commercially available products and services related to MATLAB and Simulink.

"MIADC is one important way The MathWorks consults with its customers and partners on product direction," said Richard Rovner, vice president of marketing, The MathWorks. "Our products are used by nearly every major aerospace and defense contractor, research institution, and defense agency in the world. Engineers use our model-based design and code generation offerings for vehicle and system-level modeling and analysis, prototyping of behavioral systems, real-time simulation, and hardware-in-the-loop testing for flight guidance, navigation, and control systems."
