The AIAA Aerodynamic Decelerator Systems Technology Conference and Seminar (ADSTCS) provides the world’s leading scientists, engineers, researchers, managers, and promising students within the field of parachute and aerodynamic decelerator systems an opportunity to present recent advances before a knowledgeable international audience. Topics include design and development, materials and manufacturing, modeling and simulation, system applications and operations, testing, and more. The four-day long conference is set in a stimulating and thought-provoking environment.

Conference Objective

ADSTCS is organized to promote interdisciplinary understanding of aerodynamic decelerator systems, their underlying science and technology, and their applications to government and commercial endeavors.

Who Should Attend?

The biennial ADSTCS is a unique event covering the latest advances in the science of aerodynamic decelerator system, while also providing a meeting place to network and form new partnerships. Specifically, the 2022 event will feature participants from the U.S. (NASA, Airborne Systems North America, Pioneer Aerospace Corporation, U.S. Army CCDC Soldier Center, Yuma Proving Ground) and Europe (AIRBUS, CNES, ISAE-SUPAERO, ONERA, CNRS, ESA, DSTL, DLR, CIMNE and others) and will continue a long tradition of meeting every now and then in Europe (the last similar event was held in Dublin, Ireland in 2011). Many presentations will be given by professionals distinguished in their fields and by high-ranking members of the government and military. Consider attending if you have a professional interest in aerodynamic decelerator systems engineering or science and wish to:

  • Present results and insights from your own work
  • Interact with colleagues who present papers in your field
  • Engage with people and ideas across a broad spectrum of aerospace technologies
  • Understand how your organization might participate in ADST’24 (to be held in the U.S. within the AIAA Aviation Forums (
