New University Team To Build On Southampton’s Reputation For Aerospace

Will Introduce New Collaborative Program At Farnborough

The University of Southampton will launch its new aerospace sector team at the 2012 Farnborough International Air Show on Tuesday. Aerospace Southampton will expand the University’s involvement in the sector and broaden research collaborations with key players, such as BAE Systems, EADS and the Ministry of Defence.

Southampton has established a world-leading reputation for research and education in all areas of the aerospace industry ranging from aerodynamics and aero acoustics to aircraft noise and vibration as well as computational engineering and agent-based systems. The University is also pushing the boundaries and applying its expertise in new areas, such as unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) and space debris.

A number of world-renowned research groups and facilities which support aerospace-related projects are based at the University of Southampton including the RJ Mitchell Wind Tunnel, the Institute of Sound and Vibration Research, the Airbus Aircraft Noise Technology Centre and the Rolls-Royce University Technology Centres at Southampton.

“The aerospace industry faces a number of major engineering and environmental challenges in the years ahead and the University of Southampton is perfectly positioned to continue its world-changing impact on the sector,” said Don Spalinger, the University’s Director of Research and Innovation Services . “The creation of Aerospace Southampton will build on our global reputation and excellent links with industry will help us to maximise future opportunities for our research.

“Aerospace Southampton also has the potential to equip our graduates for leadership in the sector and it will consult with alumni and external stakeholders to identify how to enhance the University’s contribution to the industry,” Spalinger continued.

Professor Mark Spearing, Southampton’s Pro-Chancellor (International), will Chair Aerospace Southampton which encompasses staff, students and representatives from major research groups across the University. Industry executives from leading commercial and industry organisations will support Aerospace Southampton through a new advisory board.
