Airborne has a unique capability set that covers the entire product development cycle for composite
structures to bring to the partnership with Limosa Inc., from initial feasibility through to serial automated
production and the supply of digital manufacturing equipment. These capabilities include design, tooling,
stress analysis, prototype production and process development, economic analysis, automation and
software development. Limosa Inc. founder and CEO Hamid Hamidi and Airborne Commercial Director Joe
Summers signed the partnership heads of terms on the 8th February, 2023 .
Limosa Inc. founder and CEO, Dr. Hamid Hamidi says: ‘’Design for manufacturability and serviceability is the
core mission at Limosa. The production rate of these new technology vehicles will sit somewhere between
automotive and aerospace industry products, so I believe the integration of automated composite
manufacturing will be a game changer. I am very proud and excited by this partnership between Limosa
and Airborne and I believe that combined automated composite manufacturing capability of Airborne will
enable Limosa to mass produce the composite airframe structure by having the environmental issues, such
as waste reduction and recyclability in mind since the very beginning’’.
Airborne Business Development Manager, responsible for AAM, Jamie Snudden: “The production rates and
technical requirements that are being suggested for AAM are different to any markets that have come
before, and therefore a new approach to automation is needed. There also needs to be a highly
collaborative approach taken between design and industrialisation functions to ensure trade-offs are fully
reviewed and development occurs rapidly to reach the timescales being suggested by OEMs. I’m very
excited by this collaboration between Airborne and Limosa, who is taking a long term and innovative view
for the development of the LimoConnect. Airborne are looking forward to supporting Limosa in bringing
about their vision.
