Existing AIC SWOT

Weaknesses Limit Opportunities and exacerbate threats

The best way to solve a small problem is to enlarge it.

“Network” COSConcept of Operations

Innovation is “network-centric” phenomenon, having no “central processor.”

Innovation does not occur in a vacuum, and depends on sufficient people and risk capital.

The new Aerospace Innovation Center is designed to vector people and capital to leverage the core Applied R&D program, leading to:

Job retention/creation Company retention/creation Higher Georgia STEM achievement

A more highly desired, better-paid Georgia workforce

Innovation:

Applied Research & Development

Core Functions

  • Instigate applied R&D partnerships between industry and academic resources at Warner Robins

  • Be transaction, technology, and business-case focused

  • Apply state resources to “close the business case,” not merely to attract firms’ participation

Key People

Metrics

Key Partners

Deputy Director

WR “Aerospace Industry Roundtable”

No. of Projects supported by partnership between industry, academia, and state resources

ROI to participants

Federal contract $ sought/won/resulted from the transaction

Internal GA: GTRI, MERC, Batelle, SAIC

External US: AFRL, US DOD, NASA, NIST

Simple Investment Criteria:

1.) GA funds “close” ROI business case

2.) GA funds = GA jobs during the investment period

3.) R&D partners commit to GA for production

Example Projects

Marry companies to state lab resources to solve a specific technological/process hurdle

Identify a shopping list of high-reward, high-risk technologies for possible transactions

Serve the “common good” by achieving individual project success

Mission Focus:Applied Research & Development

Business:

Companies and Capital

Core Functions

  • Provide aerospace relocation leads to GDEcD; serve as a “neural node” resource of industry intelligence

  • Assist firms to land DoD and NASA RDT&E programs in GA

  • Identify most desired firms/firm-types that will compliment existing aerospace industry capacity and pursue strategies to bring them here

Key People

Metrics

Key Partners

  • Program Director = AIC Executive Director

  • Possible support from NADC for research and lead generation;

  • Possible “Specialist” support as needed basis from GDEcD: Caseworker role

# of new aerospace companies and/or program elements that are relocated and/or performed in GA

$ Increase in GA’s Federal Aerospace Contracts

Reduction in # of GA-Tech Aerospace Engineering graduates that leave GA for employment elsewhere

Internal GA: GDEcD, GA Military Affairs, GTRI

External US: AIA, AIAA, AIA, US Chamber of Commerce

  • In addition to federal procurement in Georgia, the aerospace industry can be fed by emerging new demand for:

    • Smaller, faster business jets

    • Emerging “personal spaceflight” enterprises

    • Commercial broadband satellite applications

    • Commercial robotic flight applications (UAVs)

  • States that prepare to receive/participate in these new enterprises will enjoy industry expansion

Example Projects

Promote GA to the US Aerospace industry as a hotbed of innovation and workforce excellence

Represent GA in aerospace policy forums

Develop a “program pursuit” network among GA aerospace companies’ Business Development units to combine efforts on large USG programs

Skills Development and Education

Core Functions

  • Capture Federal Aerospace Workforce Development Resources in GA

  • Represent Aerospace “cluster” to other statewide workforce development programs/initiatives

  • Lead technology-specific training partnerships to benefit GA aerospace companies

  • Be cognizant of and help coordinate delivery of K-12 STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) curriculum initiatives throughout GA

Key People

Metrics

Key Partners

- NADC: Initiative Consultant- GA: Initiative Coordinator

Cooperative agreement (MOU) with National Aerospace Development Center and GA DoL

No. of workforce development projects “owned” by participants in the NADC-led process; completion and satisfaction of criteria

No. of individuals certified/trained/retained due to training partnerships.

Internal GA: GDEcD, GA-DoL, GA-DoEd

External US: US DoL, US DoD

Example Projects

Georgia has been chosen by the National Aerospace Development Center (NADC) to participate in the National Aerospace Workforce Solutions Initiative (NAWSI).

Under NAWSI, the US Department of Labor will provide Georgia a full-time initiative consultant to help Georgia assess and address workforce and skills development needs in the aerospace industry.

Organize an aerospace-centric workforce development task force to interface with general statewide workforce efforts

Complete AIC’s promised CMMI training initiative

Organize companies to interface with the school system leading to a GA aerospace “career day” and through a “speakers bureau” to provide ongoing school programs

Address the Elementary-Middle School STEM gap
