Aerospace & Transportation
Connecting spaces. When we mention aerospace and transport we are talking about connecting and conquering spaces. So what spaces are there to conquer today?
Emerging economies are one of those spaces of course, where growth means new transport, routes, airports, and the technology to make it all work. Starting from scratch has an advantage: benefitting from the experience of those – such as Novabase – who have tackled similar challenges elsewhere.
Developed economies show an inverse trend. Add a difficult economy to an urgent need for more sustainable cities and the result is public transport that requires reinventing. Today, economic constraints are pushing increasing numbers towards collective transport. What if we could attract these people instead, with a more flexible, fluid and comfortable passenger experience?
Bridging these two worlds, air traffic is enjoying an upward
trend. More planes are being built, but the space they share is limited: so what is the best way to optimise airports, control systems, even air space itself? More importantly, here too there is scope for rethinking the passenger experience. And here again, technology is not the starting point: we must first understand what people want, how they travel, how they would like to travel.
Finally, Space: no longer a distant domain. Satellites are everywhere: from telecommunications to on board aircraft, or even the mere gesture of checking the time. Applications are constantly emerging, and some, such as providing a more precise location, open an entire field of opportunities.
What do all these domains have in common? What links the challenges of a space engineer to those of a subway
