Engineers during a Morgan Botti Lightning Laboratory, formed in Cardiff Bay, are assisting attention rise fuel-saving CO twine combination aircraft.

The Morgan Botti lab featured in a new filming event for Canadian CBC TV show, 'The Nature of Things.'

The lab’s researchers are mouth-watering a open to see their work in movement this dusk as partial of a showcase Wales Festival of Innovation, a month-long programme of events to applaud ground-breaking creation in Wales.

The centre, that was determined by Cardiff University and Airbus Group Innovations, Newport, will give visitors a event to learn how it generates synthetic lightning and how a investigate directly helps a aerospace industry.

It is one of dozens of participants in a Festival that is organized by a Electronics and Software Technologies Network for Wales (ESTnet), a Knowledge Transfer Network (KTN) with a support of Welsh Government.

The festival, now in a second year, aims to prominence creation to inspire businesses and pioneering organisations to deposit in Wales. A far-reaching operation of companies and organisations are holding partial including software, electronics, life science, automotive and aerospace enterprises, and heading university investigate departments.

Professor Manu Haddad, Director of a Morgan-Botti Lightning Laboratory, said: “This is a singular investigate trickery dedicated to aerospace applications. The categorical aim is to assistance pattern improved aerospace materials and components with optimised lightning protection; a efforts are quite focussed on CO combination materials. We are really vehement to be holding partial in a festival and fervent to share with others a achievements of a rarely dedicated group here. There is a good suggestion of unrestrained among a investigate team, that has helped to make poignant advances in building new techniques given a investiture 3 years ago. We are already attracting pivotal general industries to work with us, that will advantage a economy and raise a general value of scholarship and engineering in Wales”.
