National Technical Committee

Following our attendance at the CEAS2009 European Air & Space Conference, CTL met with the team who run theUK’s Aerospace and Defence Knowledge Transfer Network (A&D KTN).  The A&D KTN is managed by the A|D|S Group Limited (previously: Society of British Aerospace Companies), by an independent full-time staff dedicated to delivering the objectives of the A&D KTN.  The key objectives of the A&D KTN are to

“deliver measurable improved industrial performance by facilitating the innovation processes and enabling the collaborative arrangements that will deliver the National Aerospace Technology Strategy; and to act as the coherent voice of the A&D community in informing Government and research funding agencies about science, innovation and technology issues relating to the sector”.


CTL have become a member of the A&D KTN and have also gone on to join its National Technical Committee (NTC) on Health Management & Prognostics (HMaP).  The A&D KTN runs a number of NTCs, which have been set up to advise the KTN, Government and Industry on key technological themes, as well as the future research and technology priorities that should be invested in.  Jim Cockram will be attending the next HMaP NTC on the 3rd of March at Rolls-Royce Bristol, and as part of the agenda he will be delivering a company presentation on CTL’s expertise and products to those present, who include representatives from BAE SYSTEMS, Airbus UK, Cosworth, QinetiQ, Messier-Dowty and academia.

We will provide news on the meeting in due course.
