Spirit AeroSystems is already one of the world’s largest manufacturers of aerostructures and increasingly an important company within the space sector, and this event seeks to bring together Spirit AeroSystems ambitious plans for both sustainable aviation and for the space sector into one collaboration building event.

With similar technology challenges and enormous crossover opportunities between aerospace and space, this event aims at being a catalyst for further collaboration and partnerships, and we invite any UK company or organisation within the aerospace or space sectors to apply now to join Spirit AeroSystems for this timely event. As we are keen to allow an exchange of ideas we are keeping numbers restricted and so the event will be held on a ‘by invitation only’ basis. 

The event will include a facility tour for all attendees, an opportunity to ‘speed pitch’ your own organisation to all attendees and finally the opportunity to discuss with the Spirit R&D team how you might help be an ideal collaboration partner. 

Research and development at Spirit is focused long-term on the future of aerospace and space manufacturing. Spirit is actively developing new concepts, designs and solutions that will help build next-generation and next-next-generation aircraft and contribute to the growing space opportunity. Areas of particular interest to Spirit AeroSystems include but are not restricted to: 

Technology areas:

  • Cryogenic Storage, Distribution and Management
  • Aerostructures and Integration

Challenges for discussion:

What are the aerospace/space crossover opportunities in cryo fuel storage & structures?

  • Fuel system elements
  • Storage of LH2/other cryo
  • Fuselage integration
  • Certification – what can we learn from each other?

Testing, discussion on:

  • The requirements
  • Existing facilities and future requirement

What are the future Supply Chain and Skills requirements?
Potential Market Opportunities
