Gali will introduce Kennon Products and the engineering work done there, including past projects, expertise, the team and future projects. He will also highlight their work designing inflatable life preserver units. Klug will share a design engineering project currently in progress, thermal radiation curtains for the KC-46 in-flight refueling tanker. His presentation will include some of the background engineering concepts involved in this product, for example, modes of heat transfer, and the factors that go into designing the curtains, such as material selection, testing and specifications.
