Aerospace and Electronic Systems Society (AESS) Chapter

Welcome to the Swiss Chapter of the IEEE Aerospace and Electronic Systems (AES-CH). the place where electronics fly.

The petition for the chapter creation was accepted by the AESS the 28.03.2014. and the founding took place on June 2014 at the Zurich Airport in the former control tower.

We organize and support technical and networking events and meetings in Switzerland, in the form of lectures or workshops on topics related to aerospace and its electronic systems.

Depending the nature of the event we promote joint lectures with partner organizations like ION-CH, svfw and AOC-CH  We also favor links to industry and academia to strengthen the network across the aerospace field in Switzerland.


For aerospace research and technical development activities different funding possibilities are in existence:
