HUNTSVILLE, AL: Boeing, the aerospace company and manufacturer of commercial jetliners and defense, space and security systems starts off its 11th research centre in Alabama devoted exclusively for the creation and development of analytics and simulation technologies.  The centre will act as the company's hub for collaborative technology development by associating with academic institutions and research partners in the same field..

By continuously modernizing and improving Boeing products and operations, the centre will also be developing a variety of other technologies for their existing and future products and services. Apart from simulation and analytics the key areas of study are; systems analysis, applied mathematics, chemicals, composite materials, metals and ceramics, propulsion, avionics systems and sensors, communication and sensing, cybersecurity, materials and processes, and product standards. .

The new research team at Alabama will have a host of facilities including a lab equipped with autoclaves that heat-treat composite materials, an accelerated rate calorimeter to test heat reactions, state-of-the-art machines to test the properties of metals, and computers to simulate and test vehicle management systems.

BR&T also provides technologies that enable the development of future aerospace solutions. By building multiple computing networks it enables researchers around the globe to integrate simulations and further technology development in a fast and collaborative environment.
