How is Concordia at the forefront of aerospace?

During the Take-off/Touch-Down programming, 4TH SPACE invited researchers, students, professors, external collaborators and the public to explore the contemporary realities, challenges, and advancements of aerospace, aviation, and space.

The main questions we considered reflect on mobility, drones, and the human factors of aviation, as well as green, sustainable aviation, women in aerospace and what’s next in Space research at Concordia.

For the duration of the programming, visitors stopped by to soar through the interactive installations built with equipment brought straight from research labs and our industry partners. 4TH SPACE housed drones, planes, composite materials, and elements related to space and aerospace history, including a teaching model cockpit, courtesy of Dr. Rodrigues (Professor, Electrical and Computer Engineering), an in-flight eye-tracking simulator from Dr. Johnson (Professor and Chair, Psychology), an array of model planes from the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE), and an ambular drone developed by the staff from the International Civil Aviation Organization.
