The company announced it has begun construction on a 7,000-square-foot addition to its research and technology center in Alabama.

Known as the Center for Applied Simulation and Analytics (CASA), the new lab space will serve as a hub for Boeing, its research partners and academic collaborators to create and develop simulation and analytics technologies, providing advanced simulation of Boeing products from concepts through operations.

The lab, which is scheduled to open in mid-2015, will consist of seven individual laboratories and a large collaboration center that will provide an immersive environment for technology development and customer interaction. It will take advantage of Boeing's extensive worldwide capabilities to enable geographically distributed teams to provide advanced math, analytics and simulation technology to improve the effectiveness and efficiency across the lifecycle of Boeing products and services.

The CASA labs include:

  • Cyber security
  • Data analytics
  • Mobile development
  • Modeling and simulation
  • System engineering integrated technology
  • Technology integration
  • Immersive visualization

The BR&T–Alabama research center includes metals and fracture technology, chemical technology and many new or increased labs, such as radio frequency systems, advanced systems integration, vehicle management systems integration, composites lab and advanced electromechanical technologies.

Boeing Research & Technology is the company's advanced and central R&D organization, providing technologies that enable the development of future aerospace solutions while improving the cycle time, cost, quality and performance of existing Boeing products and services. The company's research and technology development is conducted at 11 Boeing research centers in Australia, Brazil, China, Europe, India, Russia and the United States, including Alabama, California, Missouri, South Carolina and Washington.
