A combination of state-of-the-art engineering design, simulation and visualisation facilities will combine with full scale HIL/development rigs to allow the rapid development of new integrated propulsion, airframe and subsystems technologies.
The AIRC will be the focal point for Aerospace Research at Cranfield University, centrally located to integrate with Cranfield’s existing facilities:
- Gas Turbine Test Laboratories
- Wind and Icing Tunnels
- National Flying Laboratory Centre
- Cranfield Airport
- Aero-structure Assembly and Systems Installation Laboratory
- Flight Simulators and ATM Laboratory.
