Satellite Thermal Control Overview and Challenges

Frederic Michard | Thales Alenia Space

Dr. Frederic Michard is a Thermal Expert at Thales Alenia Space (FR) a global space manufacturer delivering, high-tech solutions for telecommunications, navigation, Earth Observation, environmental management, exploration, science and orbital infrastructures. With more than 30 years dedicated to thermal engineering for space products, he had a major contribution to the design of new generation of antennas, payload electronic units, instruments and subsystems. In charge of R&D activity, he was particularly involved into the development, validation and qualification of innovative thermal control technologies dedicated to space applications such as composite material and mini two-phase fluidic components (Exchangers, Heat Pipe, Fluid loops…) in the frame of CNES or ESA projects.

Wide Band Gap Integration for Automotive Power Electronic Applications

Jerome Hélie | Vitesco

Jerome Hélie has a master of fundamental science on Modeling in Mechanic, Sorbonne Univ. and a Master of applied science in propulsion from SUPAERO. He did his PhD in IFPen on fluid dynamic, turbulence and multiphysic. He his author of a hundred of publications.

Jerome began his carreer on Formula1 project for Siemens. He continued with R&D advanced developments to reduce pollutants and CO2 emissions of combustion engines, where he had management positions for Continental Automotive. He was also Project Leader for a neural network function development.

He is taking care for five years of the Thema of cooling of powerlectronic for various projects, including air cooled, liquid cooled plateform and OEMs applications, as senior expert.

Airbus Systems Roadmap and the Associated Thermal Challenges for Electronic Equipments
Frédéric Marchetto | Airbus

Frédéric Marchetto is an experienced engineer, within Airbus Design Office, in a department in charge of Strategy and R&T topics. He animates the CORAC roadmap for the Systems and represents the Airbus Equipment & Systems community within external organizations such as the CORAC, Aerospace Valley and IRT Saint Exupéry. Graduated from Ecole National de l’Aviation Civile, he has experience in project and team management, system architecture/design on a wide range of ATA. He has also been in charge of R&T partnership strategy in the Systems Procurement Department.

Christophe Vlacich | Airbus

Christophe Vlacich is working for Airbus Commercial Aircraft in the avionics and simulations products domain as electronics senior expert. The domain is in charge to design, manufacture and support core avionics products, like flight controls computers, for the whole commercial aircraft programs of Airbus where electronics is a critical competence.

Christophe joined Airbus in 2001, was electronics designer and architect of the flight control computers for the A380, A400M, A350. At the origin of a multi-program flight control computer product line currently under deployment on A320 and working today actively for the next generation of flight control computers for the next commercial aircraft of AIRBUS. Christophe has published 7 patents.

Hélène Calmels | Airbus

After four years of experience on thermal management for space applications, Hélène Calmels joined Airbus Commercial Aircraft, and more precisely the Airbus Avionics and Simulation Domain in 2017. As a thermal and vibrations specialist, she is the owner of Airbus Avionics thermal roadmap and she is involved in design, analysis and test activities and manufacturing support.
