Advanced Manufacturing for Complex Avionics (AMCA)

ATI-approved AMCA project, led by GE Aviation Systems, focused on the research, development and implementation of novel supply chain techniques in support of new technology introduction in the GE Electronic Controller and Power business. The project aimed to facilitate a step-change in the delivery of manufacturing and test capacity and capability to meet aerospace requirements. The project included the development of PCB manufacturing test equipment and developed new techniques for the enhancement of high volume complex manufacturing processes. The project also focused on the development of Remote Electronic Units for use in harsh environments, setting requirements for future PCB manufacturing and test capabilities. The outcomes of this project were expected to create additional new jobs by and sustain manufacturing on the GE site.
