GAMMA – Aerospace and Autonomous Systems

The project was initiated to explore how technology-based solutions could replace humans in tasks that are mundane, dangerous and dirty, or detailed and precise across sectors including aerospace, nuclear, automotive and petrochemicals.

The £9.1 Million 3 year programme primarily concentrated on the end-users of autonomous systems and put both the North West and rest of the UK in a strong position to capitalise on the developing market. The project built on existing academic and manufacturing competencies to create a competitive sub-national capability in autonomous systems.
