A Manufacturing Agreement that is Out of This World

Boeing and RMIT are joining forces in an exciting collaboration to develop local solutions for the manufacturing of space equipment.

“Australia’s burgeoning space sector requires the production of complex, low volume, bespoke components not suited to conventional manufacturing techniques,” Boeing Defence Australia director of Aerospace Engineering and Production, Paul Watson, says.

“This partnership will develop new knowledge in advanced manufacturing technologies which will not only stimulate the development of a local fabrication capability but will also expose Australian industry to space export markets as part of Boeing’s global supply chain.”

“Our ultimate goal is to maximise opportunities for commercialisation of the products that we co-develop with Boeing,” RMIT Deputy Vice Chancellor for Research and Innovation, Professor Calum Drummond, responded.

“This is a pioneering project which provides a tangible pathway for Australian businesses to upskill, innovate and export globally as manufacturers of products for space applications. “Leveraging Boeing and RMIT’s joint expertise and facilities, we believe we can unlock boundless future opportunities for Australian industry.”

The partnership is set to utilise Boeing’s experience in space product development and RMIT’s world-leading research in advanced manufacturing to deliver projects on product design strategy, materials research and process innovation and will be carried out at RMIT’s Space Industry Hub – a launch pad and industrial solutions incubator dedicated to growing Australia’s space sector.

Paul Watson continued, “This partnership will develop new knowledge in advanced manufacturing technologies which will not only stimulate the development of a local fabrication capability but will also expose Australian industry to space export markets as part of Boeing’s global supply chain.”
