Aerospace research in Alabama powers new industry discoveries

Researchers in Alabama are leading efforts to expand and sharpen the capabilities of the global aerospace and aviation industries. Their focus varies widely, from deep space exploration to military helicopter operations, with the projects happening in laboratories across the state.

“Some of the most innovative research to navigate new frontiers in space and defense is happening here in Alabama,” said Greg Canfield, Secretary of the Alabama Department of Commerce.

“This work will help advance the goals and strategies of our government and industry partners at home and in markets they serve around the world.”

The research ties into diverse fields of interest for key players in the aerospace, aviation and defense industries, who are gathered this week at the 2022 Farnborough International Airshow, near London. An Alabama team is on the ground at the global industry’s most important business event this year.
