The European Telemetry and Test Conference etc2014 took place in Nuremberg in June 2nd-5th, 2014.
Organised by the European Society of Telemetry, etc2014 welcomed more than 130 professionals out of 16 countries. Compared to the latest session in 2012, this represented a considerable increase in participants.
After the Opening Ceremony and its two breath-taking presentations – the technology used in the Red Bull Stratos project by the company Riedel Communications and the Optionally Piloted Vehicle flights by Airbus Helicopters –, over 50 Technical Papers were presented in 10 Technical Sessions, highlighting the most recent innovations in methods, systems, and instrumentation from industry, researchers and laboratories all around the world.
Special Sessions hosted the ICTS General Session (International Consortium for Telemetry Spectrum), the ETSC Open Meeting (European Telemetering Standardisation Committee) and the MDL User Meeting (Measurement Description Language).
As part of the goal of the European Society of Telemetry to support the technical growth and further formation in the fields of telemetry, the Conference dedicated tow half days to Short Courses. Internationally recognised specialists trained and refreshed on a wide range of telemetry and test related technologies, e.g. on the “new modulation on the block” OFDM.
More than 50 companies attended the etc2014 exhibition and offered unique opportunities for technical discussions. Within the etc-Village, they presented numerous innovations, among others around new sensors and data acquisition architectures, Ethernet video solutions, C-band telemetry.
This international success has been confirmed by the feedback of the participants: more than 85% were satisfied about the information offered in the Technical Sessions and the etc2014 Exhibition, the organisation and the location of the Conference.
Organised for the first time in cooperation with SENSOR + TEST, the internationally leading trade fair for sensors, measuring, and testing technology, the new form of etc2014 opened the door to further 500+ exhibitors; potentially interesting for the daily and future applications of the telemetry professionals.
