    1. Recommendations for Georgia’sAerospace Innovation Center Georgia Aviation Technical College Eastman, Georgia July 13, 2006 Nick Fuhrman & Associates nfuhrman@comcast.net (770) 256-4212

    2. Atlanta Macon Savannah Georgia Aerospace Overview • 2004 Federal Contracts $5.35 Billion: • DoD: $3.9 Billion • $1.67 Billion Air Force • NASA: $33 Million • $7 million to business • $26 million to educational and non-profit • 83,000 aerospace workers • 530 aerospace and aviation-related companies • Public Interest: • 2078 subscriptions to Aviation Week & Space Technology Magazine • 6000+ Military Times Subscriptions • Georgia is an “aerospace state” • Rank: 8th in U.S. aerospace employment 83,000+ employees $5.2B+ Direct Wages • Multiplier = $118.3B total state economic impact Nick Fuhrman & Associates nfuhrman@comcast.net (770) 256-4212

    3. Existing AIC SWOT Weaknesses Limit Opportunities and exacerbate threats The best way to solve a small problem is to enlarge it. -Donald Rumsfeld Nick Fuhrman & Associates nfuhrman@comcast.net (770) 256-4212

    4. New SWOT New Opportunities are pursued to overcome weaknesses and mitigate threats Nick Fuhrman & Associates nfuhrman@comcast.net (770) 256-4212

    5. Leadership Georgia’s “one-stop-shop” to the international aerospace community Georgia Aerospace Innovation Center BusinessCompanies and Capital EducationSkills Development and Education InnovationApplied Research & Development “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 Nick Fuhrman & Associates nfuhrman@comcast.net (770) 256-4212

    6. Proposed Organization *Position to be filled by AIC Director for at least one year Nick Fuhrman & Associates nfuhrman@comcast.net (770) 256-4212

    7. Georgia AIC Vision One-Stop-Shop Georgia Aerospace Innovation Center Mission Focus:Companies and Capital Mission Focus:Skills Development and Education Mission Focus:Applied Research & Development Leadership: AIC Directorate Core Functions • Serve as key aerospace industry resource • Interface with GCI and state leadership • Coordinate, Assist and Measure Operating Units’ Projects • Position Georgia among leading aerospace states Key People Metrics Key Partners Executive DirectorIndustry Advisory Board Chair- Industry Advisory Board Members - Key Technologies Advisory Board Assistant Director - Research No. of meaningful new US Aerospace industry (including USG) interactions and/or transactions conducted in GA. No. of Projects (among 3 operating units) supported by partnership between industry, academic, and state resources. Internal GA: GDEcD, GTRI, MERC, UGA, GA-Tech, Robins AFB, Dobbins RAFB External US: Aerospace States Association, AIA, AIAA, US DoL, US DoD, NASA, FAA Example Projects Feed GDEcD a pipeline of potential aerospace relocations to GA Promote GA to the US Aerospace industry as a hotbed of innovation and workforce excellence Negotiate applied R&D partnerships centered at WRAFB and elsewhere, as appropriate, throughout GA. Nick Fuhrman & Associates nfuhrman@comcast.net (770) 256-4212

    8. Georgia AIC Vision One-Stop-Shop Georgia Aerospace Innovation Center Mission Focus:Companies and Capital Mission Focus:Skills Development and Education Mission Focus:Applied Research & Development 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 Nick Fuhrman & Associates nfuhrman@comcast.net (770) 256-4212

    9. Georgia AIC Vision One-Stop-Shop Georgia Aerospace Innovation Center Mission Focus:Companies and Capital Mission Focus:Skills Development and Education 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 Nick Fuhrman & Associates nfuhrman@comcast.net (770) 256-4212

    10. Georgia AIC Vision One-Stop-Shop Georgia Aerospace Innovation Center Mission Focus:Companies and Capital Mission Focus:Skills Development and Education Mission Focus:Applied Research & Development Education: 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 Nick Fuhrman & Associates nfuhrman@comcast.net (770) 256-4212
