Aerospace Integration Research Centre (AIRC)

The £35m flagship Aerospace Integration Research Centre (AIRC) will boost aerospace research capabilities in the UK whilst cementing the University’s reputation as the leading aerospace research institution in Europe.

Co-funded by Airbus, Rolls Royce and Cranfield University, following a grant from the Higher Education Funding Council for England (HEFCE), the new facility is equipped with the latest cutting-edge technology where researchers will investigate ways of integrating new technologies to reduce the time from innovation to application.

Facilities include a visualisation area, an air traffic management simulation and large aircraft simulator used to test new ideas and impact on aircraft alongside a 1,500m² open lab housing a full size aircraft wing for testing intelligent robots in the structural assembly of aircraft parts.
