Sustainable Space,
the keystone to the future!



The 2nd International Conference on Flight Vehicles, Aerothermodynamics and Re-entry Missions Engineering (FAR) is an event organized by the European Space Agency (ESA in conjunction with other global space Agencies and institutional partners, including the Deutsches Zentrum für Luft und Raumfahrt (DLR), the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA), the the Centre National d’Études Spatiales (CNES) of France, the Agenzia Spaziale Italiana (ASI), the United Kingdom Space Agency (UKSA), the Spanish National Institute of Aerospace Engineering (INTA), the Norwegian Space Agency (NOSA), the Romanian Space Agency (ROSA), and the HyFAR-ARA association (HyFAR-ARA).

Since 1998, the FAR conference aims at providing space agencies, companies, organizations, universities and research institutes with a forum of excellence in the area of flight vehicle engineering, aerothermodynamics, and re-entry missions.

The conference encompasses the whole spectrum of flying vehicles for suborbital, orbital and exploration applications, including upper stages, (re)-entry, expendable, and reusable vehicles. 

At the conference, the participants are invited to showcase their latest architecture designs, analysis and technical assessments with the aim to promote the exchange of ideas and the identification of new trends and required developments. The field covered are flight vehicle engineering, flight physics, aerodynamics, thermodynamics and fluid dynamics engineering and the architecture design and analysis of space transportation and exploration vehicles.

In addition to the latest theoretical advances in those fields, FAR is especially devoted to software tools. Demonstrations and short tutorials are welcome.
