BOXARR joins DARTeC to build the future of digital aviation

Updated: Jun 15

The Digital Aviation Research and Technology Centre (DARTeC) is being built at Cranfield University and will spearhead the UK’s research into digital aviation technology. The Centre is part of three major Cranfield University themes: Transport Systems, Aerospace, and Manufacturing.

The Centre will address research challenges facing the aviation industry such as:

  • the integration of drones into civilian airspace

  • increasing the efficiency of airports through technological advances

  • creating safe, secure shared airspace through secure data communication infrastructures

  • increasing the reliability and availability of aircraft through self-sensing, self-aware technologies.

Game-changing technologies such as a virtual air traffic control tower and next-generation radar technologies on the University’s licensed airport create a unique research and development environment. BOXARR will join the DARTeC consortium of leading aerospace and aviation companies including Thales, Raytheon, SAAB, Boeing UK, Aveillant, and Cranfield University.
