Canada offers new perspectives for the EADS Technology Licensing initiative, opening potential partnership opportunities to be pursued with the country’s established aerospace industrial sector, as well as its extensive research & development network.
This is the assessment of Peter Westphal, EADS’ Senior Manager for Technology Licensing & Intellectual Property, following a wide range of contacts he made during the CANSEC 2012 defence and security exhibition, held 30-31 May in Ottawa.
EADS’ Peter Westphal has been busy making contacts with Canadian companies and government agencies during the CANSEC exhibition in Ottawa.
“The licensing of such EADS expertise as data for simulation and the AFDX® (Avionics Full DupleX Switched Ethernet) backbone network technology are of interest to Canadian companies, while our competence in materials science and production methods are well-matched with Canada’s government initiatives in research & development,” Westphal said.
Other licensing prospects could be attractive to non-Canadian companies that have an in-country presence as suppliers to both Canada’s military services and the aerospace industry, he added.
“In addition to the existing relationships with the United States, we feel EADS offers the opportunity to open new horizons based on our know-how, experience and capabilities,” Westphal said.
