Aerospace Malaysia Innovation Centre (AMIC)
Established in 2011, AMIC core business is to embark on collaborative R&T projects, in collaboration with industries and research institutes in the aerospace sector. The establishment of AMIC as an industry-led research centre serves one of the key recommendations laid out in the National Aerospace Blueprint 1997. Operating in collaboration with its partners, AMIC’s main role is to provide universities, industries and research institutes strategic directions and focus areas for research in aerospace-related domains. The centre will play a key role in securing Malaysia’s contribution to the development of global aerospace industries.
AMIC R&T activities reflect the current challenges faced by aerospace industry in Malaysia as well as their future opportunities. Three research themes namely “Sustainable Aviation”, “Factory of The Future” and “Training of The Future” were selected to shape a path towards the sustainability of Malaysian aerospace industry. AMIC is committed in identifying and prioritizing key R&T projects within these themes to provide AMIC members and research partners with the cutting-edge R&T portfolio, and to develop technological skills and resources in key strategic areas.
Research projects are spearheaded by founding lead members, namely, Airbus, Rolls-Royce, Composites Technology Research Malaysia (CTRM), Malaysian Industry-Government Group for High Technology (MIGHT) and Majlis Amanah Rakyat (MARA). All research activities are steered, evaluated, and managed by prominent industrial experts within AMIC’s technical network.
