Cluster Competence and Strategy


Apulian aerospace system is mainly dedicated to the design and production of composite structural and non structural parts, from small components to the one-piece-barrel of the B787. The second most important segment regards the propulsion system with a solid propulsion system maintenance activity and an innovative public-private research laboratory focused on hybrid energy management systems.
A strong effort on the development of civil RPAS technologies and applications is spent since the establishment of an experimental airport (Grottaglie-Taranto airport).
Several space companies cover the two main sub-segments: satellite and on-board system design and manufacturing, on-board and ground data (included earth observation data) management systems.
