Bombardier Aerospace announced that it has signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with the National Research Council Canada (NRC) on cooperation for research and development initiatives. At the 2010 Farnborough International Airshow, Guy C. Hachey, President and Chief Operating Officer, Bombardier Aerospace, and John R. MacDougall, President, NRC, signed an MOU that outlined the framework for future collaboration between Bombardier and NRC on the development of technologies, applicable to new aircraft programs. Bombardier and NRC have previously collaborated on multiple projects: aerodynamic studies, including wind tunnel testing, for several Bombardier aircraft concepts, and the development of advanced manufacturing methods, including automated fabrication of composite aircraft fuselages. This new MOU stands to reinforce the mutually beneficial relationship and proposes a governance model that will greatly facilitate future collaborations.
