    Ottawa Branch Event
    Dr. Jacques Giroux President, Canadian Aeronautics and Space Institute

    February 26 at 630 pm at Carleton University jointly sponsored by the Carleton Mechanical and Aerospace Society

    February 27 at noon at uOttawa jointly sponsored by the uOttawa CASI Student Branch

    The topic: Opportunities with High Altitude Pseudo-Satellites (HAPS)

    Jacques Giroux is a Business Development Manager for Space and Defence Systems in ABB’s Measurements and Analytics Business Unit located in Quebec City, Canada. This business unit is part of ABB Inc., a Canadian corporation member of the ABB group that operates in more than 100 countries with about 135,000 employees.

    ABB Measurement and Analytics delivers analytical solutions for industrial as well as space and defence applications. Dr. Giroux has worked for this business unit since 1991, at the time when ABB’s space activities were just starting and he has since then been a key leader of ABB’s development in the space business. His experience at ABB spans business, management and engineering aspects of optical instrumentation for remote sensing and Earth observation.

    Dr. Giroux obtained a Bachelor degree in Physics in 1981 at Laval University in Quebec City. He did his Masters and PhD in Instrumentation for Nuclear Physics also at Laval University, followed by a Post‐doc at the Max‐Planck‐Institute in Heidelberg, Germany, under an NSERC (Canada) fellowship. Through his career, Dr. Giroux participated on several committees related to the fields of space, optics, remote sensing and Earth observation. He was a member of the R&D committee of INO (National Optics Institute) for about 8 years. He has been involved in research committees with several Canadian universities and industrial committees with the Canadian Space Agency. He represents ABB on the space committee of the Aerospace Industries Association of Canada (AIAC).

    Please plan to attend to hear about new opportunities in space and business, Space 2.0 and CASI’s role in the community. A great networking opportunity!

    “Electrified Aircraft Propulsion”


    The CASI Toronto Branch February meeting will be held on Thursday, February 28, 2019.  Our guest speaker will be Martin Abramian, Senior Engineering Specialist, Bombardier Aerospace, who will give a presentation on “Electrified Aircraft Propulsion”.  

    Aviation currently makes up about 2-2.5% of the total global CO2 emission. Significant efforts have been focused in recent years on propulsion and energy technologies which may have the potential to reduce global emissions within the next 20-30 years. And since 90% of CO2 emissions from global commercial aircraft are created by large aircraft (more than 100 seats), most research efforts are focused on technologies applicable to this aircraft category. There has been significant investment in Electrified Aircraft Propulsion (EAP) research, in terms of conceptual designs and system studies, to improve the fuel efficiency, emission, and noise levels in commercial transport aircraft. In general, these studies include the implementation of an all-electric, a hybrid-electric, or a turboelectric configuration. Please select the link above for more information.

    Please join us, everyone is welcome.  There is a $5 charge for non-CASI members (payable at the door)  Attendees are requested to register at: https://casitoronto_2019_02_28.eventbrite.ca
