Aerospace and Defense


The aerospace & defense industry serves two main markets: aerospace, the production sale and service of commercial aircraft; and defense, supporting the nation’s need for military weapons and systems designed to operate on land, sea, and in the air. The industry also includes aircraft products for business use, space vehicles, and satellites for military and commercial use.

“Boeing is partnering with OMIC R&D as Boeing partners with the Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre Boeing established in Sheffield, England. There is tremendous opportunity to link with AMRC, which has a lot of experience we can leverage to give OMIC R&D a head start. There is also opportunity for the two facilities to work together to produce better technologies and products at lower costs. The higher education connection is also unique. It exposes local students to advanced manufacturing and connects our member companies with a trained workforce.”
