ASU becomes key member of Boeing Technology Alliance
Arizona State University has been chosen as one of five universities to become a member of the Boeing Technology Alliance (BTA).
In consultation with Arizona Technology Enterprises (AzTE), the technology venturing arm of ASU, Boeing selected the university based on the breadth of its scientific research capabilities and ability to generate market-impacting technologies.
The BTA is one of a portfolio of methods for discovering and integrating new technologies to enhance Boeing’s access to nontraditional technology sources, obtain perspectives on technology trends, and have exposure to a wide audience of active industry leaders.
As a key member of the BTA, ASU will assist Boeing in finding technology solutions and increasing the company’s long-term competitive advantage.
Boeing is the world's leading aerospace company and the largest manufacturer of commercial jetliners and military aircraft combined. Additionally, Boeing designs and manufactures rotorcraft, electronic and defense systems, missiles, satellites, launch vehicles, and advanced information and communication systems. Boeing has customers in more than 90 countries around the world and is one of the largest U.S. exporters in terms of sales.
“We have already had several significant collaborations on sensors and composite materials technologies,” says Bill Loux, director of business development at AzTE. “These collaborations facilitate our institutional focus on research areas with significant commercial and public impact potential.”
