[Avionics Today 12-12-2014] Boeing has begun construction on a 7,000-square-foot addition to its research and technology center in Huntsville, Ala. Known as the Center for Applied Simulation and Analytics (CASA), the new lab space will serve as a hub for Boeing, its research partners and academic collaborators to create and develop simulation and analytics technologies in the aerospace realm, providing advanced simulation of Boeing products from concepts through operations.

The lab, which is scheduled to open in mid-2015, will consist of seven individual laboratories and a large collaboration center that will provide an immersive environment for aerospace technology development and customer interaction.
Topics studied at the Alabama research center include: metals and fracture technology, chemical technology and many new or increased labs, such as radio frequency systems, advanced systems integration, vehicle management systems integration, composites lab and advanced electromechanical technologies.
