About the Seminar

Digital Technologies for Aviation in the Age of COVID-19

About the Talk: The aviation world has been rocked by changes necessary to slow the spread and effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. From an R&D perspective, this has meant a rapid change-over to supporting efforts in safer air travel as well as altered schedules and plans (for travelers, airlines, and supporting industries). This talk will provide a “behind the scenes” look into how GE Research is working to keep things running safely and securely.
