The global aerospace and defence industry is a convergence of an immense range of technologies, with innovation being driven by historical challenges and opportunities, leading to an increased focus on IP and volume of granted patents. Aerospace and defence is experiencing a transformation.
A hotbed of innovation, the aerospace and defence industry is applying new technologies, such as additive manufacturing, artificial intelligence, internet of things, machine vision and robotics, to solve industry-specific challenges created by shifting environmental, operational, regulatory and customer demands.
This is bringing fundamental changes to the industry. Disruptive new entrants and technologies are driving original equipment manufacturers and suppliers to transform and reposition their organisations, enabling them to create the transport and security solutions of the future, whilst maintaining competitive advantage.
HGF’s aerospace and defence team works with organisations in the sector, throughout the entire supply chain, to shape overall IP strategies, helping companies to maximise their IP portfolio, forge new alliances, commercialise their IP, safeguard their competitive position and identify new opportunities for the future.
