Aircraft and satellite platforms are developing increased capabilities for transportation, communication, observation and security in the skies around us.
These capabilities are supported by highly-engineered, complex systems that integrate cutting-edge innovations in embedded electronics, software, sensing, robotics, communications, optoelectronics and radio technologies. These deliver mission critical systems that are needed to operate to a high degree of precision and reliably, often regulated by complex standards.
To address changing demands in the aerospace industry, and meet new market opportunities, innovations in avionics are delivering greener, cheaper, more automated and increasingly powerful aircraft and satellites that support a growing range of functions. Research and development in avionics systems requires significant investment and collaboration across complex supply chains, with IP playing a key role in securing control of proprietary technologies and retaining competitive advantage.
HGF’s team of avionics specialists possess first-hand industry and academic research experience working with leading aerospace and defence contractors across a range of avionics technologies. With this comes in-depth understanding and expertise in protecting valuable IP in this complex field through the use of patents and trade secrets.
