The use of composites for advanced aero-structures is growing rapidly, with new commercial airframes having more than 50 percent of the primary structure built from composites and most new personal/private jet models being virtually 100 percent composite. Composites offer OEMs the opportunity to satisfy critical customer requirements by reducing weight, increasing payload and reducing fuel consumption. 

To realize these benefits, OEMs must be able to design and manufacture advanced composite aero-structures with high precision and production yields, as well as operational durability and repairability that exceed commercial and regulatory requirements of challenging aerospace environments. A differentiating composite engineering design and manufacturing solution supports end-to-end design of components and full load-bearing advanced composite aero-structures. It includes assessing in-service performance, and developing repair and restoration processes.
