International is a non-profit organisation directed by its members which aims to serve the needs of the aeronautics community by fostering development of Micro and Nano technologies for aerospace applications.
CANEUS said it is discussing with governments and industry customers to establish such facility in Canada.
CANEUS FBW partner Bombardier found use of 'fly by wire' systems reduced average load by roughly 600 pounds per plane, improved systems integration, reduced aggregate weight by roughly 1000 pounds, and composite wiring and connectors weight by 120 pounds.
Four "MNT-for-Aerospace" Visionary Awards to be presented include the Smalley Medal for Excellence in Nanotechnology for Aerospace, the CANEUS Medal for Excellence in Micro-Nano-technology for Aerospace, the CANEUS Outstanding Student Medal for MNT for Aerospace, and the CANEUS Medal for Vision and Leadership in MNT for Aerospace.
The Smalley Medal for Excellence in Nanotechnology for Aerospace, the CANEUS Medal for Excellence in Micro-Nano-technology for Aerospace, and the CANEUS Outstanding Student Medal for MNT for Aerospace each consists of a medal and a monetary prize, while the CANEUS Medal for Vision and Leadership in MNT for Aerospace is a plaque.
CANEUS NPS is taking a minority stake in AngstrE[micro]m Aerospace and placing an order for the development of a technology demonstrator satellite, Micro-Link 1.
AngstrE[micro]m Aerospace Corporation and CANEUS NPS are going to develop miniature satellites for series production.
The ambitious mission of CANEUS 2004, to bring together a representation of key stakeholders involved in MNT-based system development for aerospace, has attracted both industry and government involvement.
CANEUS 2004 will provide attendees the opportunity to gain insight into all aspects of the technology development pipeline by interacting with international research institutions that are developing MNT materials and devices, companies that are developing MNT-based systems, and government and private sector organizations that are funding aerospace MNT research and fabrication.
CANEUS 2004 is the world's premier international forum devoted to micro- nano-technologies (MNT) development for aerospace applications.
