In just a decade since the first Iron Man film kicked off the Marvel Cinematic Universe, much of the technology we see in the film has developed for real, contributing towards modern flight systems, power, weapons and artificial intelligence. This talk will explore the technological link between Science Fiction and real-world engineering, discussing examples from the latest research, and their current applications in aerospace, power, and defence.

Jay Smith is an Aerospace Engineer for Rolls-Royce and part-time author, having previously been in system-level design and support of military surveillance aircraft, and having developed a BEng Aerospace Engineering degree with Lancaster University.
