Professor Max Mulder is a Full Professor of Aerospace Human-Machine Systems and Head of the Control and Simulation section of the Faculty of Aerospace Engineering, Delft University of Technology. Max received his MSc and PhD (cum laude) in Aerospace Engineering from the Delft University of Technology in 1992 and 1999, respectively, for his work on the cybernetics of perspective tunnel-in-the-sky displays. His research interests are twofold. He studies manual control cybernetics and its use in modelling pilot perception and performance, in particular the modelling of pilot self-motion perception and neuromuscular system characteristics. Secondly, he investigates cognitive systems engineering and its application in the design of ecological human-machine systems for pilots and air traffic controllers. Max teaches several graduate courses on stochastic signal analysis and stochastic control systems, avionics, human-machine systems and air traffic management. He (co-)authored more than 350 academic publications.

In its first centennial, aerospace has matured from a pioneering activity to an indispensable enabler of our daily life activities. In the next twenty to thirty years, aerospace will face a tremendous challenge - the development of flying objects that do not depend on fossil fuels. The twenty-three chapters in this book capture some of the new technologies and methods that are currently being developed to enable sustainable air transport and space flight. It clearly illustrates the multi-disciplinary character of aerospace engineering, and the fact that the challenges of air transportation and space missions continue to call for the most innovative solutions and daring concepts.
