The 36th European Telemetry and Test Conference
“Telemetry is everywhere”

will take place in Nuremberg

in May 10th - 12th, 2016,

in cooperation with SENSOR+ TEST.



Host Conferences:






For the second time the European Telemetry and Test Conference – etc2016 will take place from 10 – 12 May 2016 in Nuremberg (Germany), in collaboration with the  SENSOR+TEST 2016.

Worldwide, there is no comparable platform to SENSOR+TEST / etc that offers such an intensive innovation dialog between suppliers of sensors, measuring and testing technology and users from all major industries. This cooperation provides in addition etc2016 exhibitors the opportunity to meet international customers from industry, science and research – from automotive industries, machinery constructions, electrical and energy industry, and of course aviation and space.

The etc2016 will spotlight the most recent innovations in methods, systems, and instrumentation from industry, researchers and laboratories all around the world.
The European Telemetry and Test Conference will showcase original technical papers and innovation ideas in Test, Telemetry, Telecontrol, Instrumentation and Recording technologies for industrial, automotive, scientific, aerospace, space, naval and military applications.


The etc2016 booths will be placed in hall 2 of the Nuremberg exhibition center, ideally placed between hall 1 and 5 of the SENSOR+TEST exhibition. It is the perfect platform for conversations between manufacturers and users from all around the world.
The etc2016 booths will be grouped in a joint area. You may choose between two “all-inclusive packages” which offer you a fully-fledged participation.


The etc2016 opening ceremony will offer two recent highlights achieved in the world of aerospace telemetry:

  • About 45 papers will be presented in dedicated technical sessions by professionals of universities, suppliers and users out of the Telemetry community

  • AIM2016 represents a dedicated technical session for advanced in-flight measurement techniques and sensors

  • Beyond the technical sessions, dedicated Working Groups will take place: ICTS General Session (International Consortium for Telemetry Spectrum), ETSC Open Meeting (European Telemetering Standardization Committee)


Nuremberg, the capital of Franconia and centre of a region of 1.5 million inhabitants, is located at the intersection of major European transport routes. Whether by car, rail or air, Nuremberg is centrally located for east and west.
The Exhibition Centre Nuremberg offers outstanding technical facilities and rapid access: 10,000 parking spaces close to the exhibition halls, own underground station and separate taxi lanes ensure convenient travel.


The Society of Flight Test Engineers - SFTE for short - is a fraternity of engineers, whose principal professional interest is the flight testing of aircraft (fixed and rotary wing) and missiles. The objective of the Society is the advancement of flight test engineering throughout the aircraft industry by providing technical and fraternal communication among individuals, both domestic and international, in the engineering fields of test operations, analysis, instrumentation and data systems.

The European Chapter - SFTE EC - extends this association for the benefit of both Americans and Europeans. For membership, a rather elastic definition of the term "European" is applied.

The 27th Symposium of the SFTE European Chapter will take place in May 10th-12th 2016 in Nuremberg, Germany, in collaboration with the 36th European Telemetry and Test Conference etc2016.

Flight testing is the most critical and time- and budget-consuming phase of aircraft development. Within a short time reliable performance data of the new airframe have to be gathered; this includes structural, aerodynamic and flight mechanic parameters. Advanced optical measurement techniques such as those developed within the collaborative project AIM² (Advanced In-flight Measurement techniques 2, funded by the European Commission contract no. 266107) are able to deliver such data after a very short time, and in addition can minimize the installation effort on the airframe compared with classical measurement techniques. Furthermore they work mostly non-intrusively and are able to capture a large amount of important data in an area or over a volume at one instant of time.

The 3rd Symposium on Advanced In-flight Measurement Techniques focuses on the presentation of the latest developments of such optical methods. Participants will get a good overview on what is possible with these measurement methods and will be able to discuss with specialists about any important issues concerning these techniques and their applications.
