WAE GOES JET POWERED WITH BAE SYSTEMS
Williams Advanced Engineering and Williams Grand Prix Engineering will share expertise, skills and technology with Eurofighter Typhoon manufacturer BAE Systems in a new partnership announced in December.
It is expected that the partnership will use the companies’ shared expertise in the fields of visual and augmented reality, aerodynamics, lightweight materials and battery technology, as well as developing solutions for intuitive cockpit designs for fighter pilots and racing drivers.
In addition to funding product and technology development, including
Future Air Combat Systems, there will be secondment opportunities for engineers across both companies, which previously collaborated on a twin-seat cockpit simulator (below), to be based at
BAE’S training and simulation facility at Warton, Lancashire.
