Current Research


Dr. Pritchard's current research is titled “Aerospace 4.0: Implications to the New Manufacturing Ecosystem” that focuses on the next generation single aisle aircraft (late 2020s) could be adopting advanced manufacturing robotic applications (Cobots, Mobots), automated fiber placement, additive manufacturing and thermoplastic composites airframe structures.


The aircraft’s clean sheet designs will integrate advancing robotic technologies with transforming the assembly process by eliminating traditional monument style production equipment/tooling. The next single aisle aircraft design will be standardizing the practices of additive manufacturing components (3D printing) which obsoletes many traditional machining technologies.
