Luke Bonnett, Frazer-Nash’s Aerospace Business Manager, and John McHugh, Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Analytics Group Leader, have been engaging with start-ups in the aerospace industry as part of the Aerospace Technology Institute’s (ATI) Boeing Accelerator.
At a networking event in March, organised by the Boeing Accelerator, Luke and John spoke to five start-ups about potential strategies to grow their capability and service offering in a volatile industrial landscape.
The companies who met with Luke and John were:
- Anomalous – which delivers AI-powered inspection software and analytics to support operations
- Intellegens – which uses disparate and novel data sets to accelerate innovation using deep learning
- Kraken IM – which captures and exploits supply-chain data to leverage efficiencies and cost savings for its customers
- Perpetual Labs – which brings together object oriented modelling and machine learning for end-to-end system simulation
- Plyable – which delivers on-demand composite tooling using applied AI and a distributed manufacturing network.
Reflecting on the discussions with the five companies, Luke said:
“The five start-ups are all digitally and data-focussed, with innovative approaches to unlocking the potential of existing and emerging services for both aerospace and wider industry.
“Both John and I were impressed by their capability, ambition and business models. We look forward to continuing to engage with these companies, and Frazer-Nash’s future potential collaborations with them.”
“Industry 4.0 technologies such as modelling, simulation, AI and machine learning can really help businesses in the aerospace industry – and other sectors – to gain a competitive advantage. We’re always happy to talk to organisations who want to understand how these technologies can help them to overcome their challenges.”
