Data analytics and development of advanced environment friendly coatings are some of the key areas Bengaluru centre would support. This specific focus will help in building next generation airplane health management tools or software tools for improving airline and airport operations, besides reducing costs. The centre will also undertake initiatives to run tests and evaluations. Flight tests will take up a significant chunk of the budget allocated in building a plane. The research centre will address this issue by developing better flight simulation systems, thereby reducing the cost.
