RMIT University has established a new simulation and test laboratory that is intended to enable researchers to work with the aviation industry on the development of new technologies.

The $200,000 laboratory, which is part of the School of Aerospace, Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering’s Sir Lawrence Wackett Aerospace Centre in Bundoora, was developed in conjunction with SimRoom.

Research to be carried out in the new facility is expected to focus on the development of communications, navigation, surveillance and avionics systems for both manned and unmanned aircraft, as well as decision-support tools and human-machine interfaces for air traffic controllers.


RMIT is already working with Thales Australia in the field of air traffic management.
