CSIRO and Boeing have 30 years of history in research and technology collaboration. Over the years, CSIRO and Boeing have invested more than $AUD170 million on 190 joint research projects in everything from innovative new manufacturing processes, to fire retardants, biofuels and software.
A five-year $35M partnership signed in 2017 has CSIRO and Boeing working together on a broad range of areas of mutual interest includingspace sciences, advanced materials and manufacturing.
Since 2012, this partnership has also expanded into collaborations with the Robotics and Autonomous Systems Group. The engagement started with smaller projects exploring the use of our 3D SLAM for mapping and has now grown to to robotics and situational awareness.
The Robotics and Autonomous Systems Group provides technical advice in robotics and sensing technology, aiming at increasing quality and safety to address the unique challenges faced by Boeing, such as low quantity, high accuracy and high quality; which offer great opportunities to further develop our research and its applications.
The success of this partnership is demonstrated by CSIRO winning the 2016 and 2017 Boeing Supplier of the Year awards for technology, for which the Robotics and Autonomous Systems Group played crucial a role. These awards are given from a selection amongst more than 13,000 suppliers from 50 countries around the world. We feel very honoured to be a valuable Boeing partner.
Earlier this year, Boeing and CSIRO announced 20 new joint research projects for 2019 making this the largest research portfolio in the history of this research and development relationship.
We are open to partnerships and collaborations for research, development, and commercialisation.
