Boeing plans to establish a new research center in the Republic of Korea and is currently in discussion with its government regarding the center opening.
The research center will focus on accelerating autonomy, artificial intelligence, avionics, analytics, smart cabin, smart factory and other technologies for future aerospace products, a Boeing statement said.
“Korea is home to premier talent and industrial partners, as well as policies that foster innovation development. These factors combine to make Korea an ideal collaborator on aerospace innovations that will change the world,” said Greg Hyslop, Boeing chief technology officer and senior vice president of Engineering, Test & Technology.
Korea represents one of the top 10 largest international markets for Boeing, and partnerships in both the commercial airplane and defense markets help support the growth of the Korean aerospace industry.
“Korea is one of the most innovative and technology-driven countries in the world, and the new center will serve as a great test bed for Boeing to collaborate and develop future technologies with many leading organizations in Korea,” said Eric John, Boeing Korea President.
Boeing plans to staff the center with locally-hired technology experts when the facility opens this year in a location to be announced at a later date.
