Airbus has used its engineering solutions to reshape the aerospace industry for some 50 years ago. The company is now offering its services to new sectors.

Opening access to Airbus engineering know-how is the goal of the Engineering Design & Services initiative launched in 2019, which envisions such potential scenarios as applying Airbus knowledge in aerodynamics, composite materials and stress analysis to improve automotive and nautical designs; or bringing the company’s skills in remote monitoring with via telemetry data links to the medical sector for tracking the function of artificial hearts. 

“The scope of Engineering & Design Services is broad, aiming to propose a catalog of standard off-the-shelf services – as well as the ability to respond to customer needs through a more tailored approach,” said Amrish Pathack, the head of consulting services at Airbus. 

This service capitalizes on Airbus' highly specialized skills, focusing on customers' needs where a project requires excellence and expertise in one or more of the following five niche characteristics: harsh environment (such as low and high temperature, high vibrations), high performance (aerodynamics, strong and light materials), high integrity (robustness and safety), high regulation (market controls), and/or high complexity (products with millions of parts). 

In addition to the automotive and nautical sectors, the medical industry is particularly well-suited for this Airbus service.
