In the now-classic TV series, “Star Trek: The Next Generation,” the narrator introduces the show with these words, “Space, the final frontier…” It is set in some distant future where technology and space meet and anything seems possible.
When we speak of the world of outer space and aerospace engineering, it is a concept so hard to comprehend in terms of actually living in the outer space environment, that most people view “Star Trek” and similar programs as “fantasy.” But it is actually science fiction, which means it is based on scientific possibilities.
If you look at what has happened in the world today, we can see that we are at least beginning to enter such a world for real. Part of this is due to aerospace technology and aerospace manufacturing. Highly trained professionals work together to create and produce the best technologies that will benefit the industry and the future.
What is Aerospace Manufacturing?
Aerospace manufacturing is the process of creating top cutting-edge technologies in the aerospace industry that are designed to create and produce the technologies that are necessary to reach the goals of aerospace technology and to ramp up the process to meet a higher purpose or goal in space. The proof of success in this field is where aerospace engineering meets manufacturing.
This can include contributing to the development of space shuttles, airplanes, rockets, and even military tactical gear and weaponry.
Who Uses it?
Many different categories of industry rely on aerospace technology including:
- Military (Cyberspace Technologies, Spaceforce, and Weapon Development)
- Spacecraft and aircraft production
- Other high-tech aerospace industries
Aerospace Engineering Meets Manufacturing
Once a great idea is conceptualized, it needs the best manufacturing to complete the process. Aerospace manufacturing helps bring everything together while ramping up production for the great inventions in the aerospace industry.
