In recent years generic Metallic Technologies R&T within Airbus have been somewhat in the shadow of the maturity progress by our Composite colleagues. But, with a record backlog of orders (and a corresponding high percentage of metallic structure to deliver), what are the current drivers, opportunities and challenges that could catapult Metallic Technologies back ‘into the light’? This presentation will explore the picture from an enabling technologies viewpoint in the short, mid and long term timeframes of programme development.
