Boeing to build research center in Korea

 

Boeing is to establish a new research center in South Korea by mid-2018 to develop autonomy, artificial intelligence, avionics, data analytics, smart cabin, smart factory and other technologies for future aerospace products.

 

The company is currently in discussion with the Korean government regarding the center’s opening.

 

Greg Hyslop, Boeing chief technology officer and senior vice president of Engineering, Test and Technology, said, “Korea is home to premier talent and industrial partners, as well as policies that foster innovation development. These factors combine to make Korea an ideal collaborator on aerospace innovations that will change the world.

 

“This new center is a natural progression of years of successful research and technology partnerships in the region, and we’re excited about the opportunity to expand our investment.”

 

Boeing plans to staff the center with locally hired technology experts when the facility opens this year in a to-be announced location and in conjunction with the local government.

 

Eric John, Boeing Korea President, said, “Korea is one of the most innovative and technology-driven countries in the world, and the new center will serve as a great testbed for Boeing to collaborate and develop future technologies with many leading organizations in Korea. I am also excited that this opportunity will generate advanced engineering jobs for next-generation local talent.”

 

Boeing Korea was established in 1988 and currently employs more than 200 people across nine Korean cities: Seoul, Incheon, Busan, Gimpo, Icheon, Seosan, Daegu, Sacheon and Yeongcheon.

 

Korea represents one of the top 10 largest international markets for Boeing, and partnerships in both the commercial airplane and defense markets help support the growth of the Korean aerospace industry.
