Right: AI-enabled autonomous systems
are changing the way the military
operates and protects their troops.
Left: Material and process engineers have dedicated the past 50
years to energy technology, in wind, tidal, solar, geothermal, oil
and gas, and transportation/conversion. They are looking into
the future to embrace new, emerging markets.
Speaking of e-vehicles, it's no longer enough to think only of
electric cars and trucks. The industry is taking the idea of
two-dimensional vehicles into a whole new dimension with the
advent of e-Mobility:
* eVTOL: electric Vertical Take-Off and Landing aircraft, which
uses electric power to hover, take off, and land vertically.
* UAM: Urban Air mobility uses highly automated aircraft to
transport passengers or cargo at lower altitudes within urban
and suburban areas.
* AAM: Advanced Air Mobility uses autonomous air transportation
systems.
These e-mobility vehicles are not something out of a Jetson's
cartoon; they are being built today. The use of traditional
lower-cost composite fibers offers many opportunities for this
field. Once these vehicles " take off, " manufacturing process
techniques will need to be fast to keep up with demand. However,
the market is there, the volume is tremendous, and innovation
is the key to making this emerging industry a sustainable
and functional part of our future.
A Collective Effort
This work cannot be done in silos. It will take a collective effort
throughout the whole distribution channel and material
life cycle, from raw material extraction to design, reuse, and
disposal, to make it work. New methods of approaching identification
of sustainability and recycling technology progress by
using " patent-mapping " as well as ranking technology using
TRLs (Technology Research Level) parameters has shown to
be most important.
It will also be the responsibility of this industry to tell the
world how composite materials must be a part of the ongoing
narrative. As an industry, there are three areas we must focus
on together: Promote efforts to manage materials and products
on a life cycle basis; build capacity to manage materials in the
future; and accelerate the public dialogue necessary to start a
generational-long shift.
The industry must come together to share ideas, exchange
information (data), and work to address the common goal of

learning about the beautiful world around us and how we want
our children to experience a future that is better for everyone.
