The Aerospace Industry

The aerospace industry primarily deals with the research, development, and manufacturing of various flight vehicles. These vehicles include airplanes, military aircraft, unpowered gliders, sailplanes, lighter-than-air vehicles like balloons and airships, defense equipment like missiles, spacecraft and other space launch vehicles. The industry is also engaged in manufacturing and operating pertinent control mechanisms like the flight-vehicle subsystems, propulsion mechanisms, aviation electronics systems and other essential support systems necessary for flights. Finally, the industry is also involved in the fabrication of nano-aerospace solutions and products as well as systems that use aerospace technology.

This industry can thus be seen as an amalgamation of engineering, science and business efforts that makes flying both in the Earth’s atmosphere (aeronautics) and around it (astronautics) a reality. As one can imagine, technology, especially precision hardware and software solutions play a crucial role in aerospace.

The companies in this business space can be either public or private. Some of the key players in the global aerospace industry are manufacturers like Boeing, Airbus; defense manufacturers like Lockheed Martin and General Dynamics and Northrop Grumman and of course, the space programs of various countries like NASA. Additionally, some of the privately-owned space research companies like SpaceX and Blue Origin are the latest additions to the aerospace industry.
