The Boeing Research & Technology-Alabama (BR&T-Alabama) facility will serve as the company’s hub for collaborative technology development with academic institutions and research partners in analytics and simulation in the southeast U.S.
Battery Resiliency Lab
The 220 engineers, technicians and staff at BR&T-Alabama will develop technologies for existing and future Boeing products and services. The Battery Resiliency Lab will focus on assessing next-generation batteries for safety.
Advanced Learning Lab
The new Advanced Learning Lab develops advanced learning technology and integrated Live-Virtual-Constructive simulation for training. The team built multiple computing networks that enable researchers worldwide to integrate simulations and advance technology development in a collaborative environment.
Chemical and Biological Lab
The Chemical and Biological Lab assesses and optimizes dispersion methods for the neutralization of media. The center’s technology research includes simulation and analytics, system analysis, applied mathematics, chemicals, composite materials, metals and ceramics, propulsion, avionics systems and sensors, communication and sensing, cybersecurity, materials and processes, and product standards.
Machine Perception Lab
The Machine Perception Lab develops technology that allows computers to “see” the world around them and create virtual representations used for factory planning and various other applications.
Modeling & Simulation Lab
As part of the Center for Applied Simulation and Analytics (CASA), the Modeling & Simulation Lab focuses on technology development and evaluation. Projects included an Australian-developed weather server that can be integrated into multiple simulation environments.
Chemical Thermal Lab
The BR&T-Alabama Chemical Thermal Lab features the Atmospheric Plasma Deposition research and development system. This center is now one of 11 Boeing research centers. They are in Australia, Brazil, China, Europe, Russia and the U.S. (including Alabama, California, Missouri, South Carolina and Washington).
Boeing opened an 80,000-sq.-ft. facility in Alabama that will be used to create and develop analytics and simulation technologies. Here a few of the labs featured at the new research center.
