Partners and Collaborators
The drive to rebirth the micro gas turbine industry in South Africa has escalated quickly with the University of Stellenbosch (Department of Mechanical and Mechatronic Engineering) and the CSIR DPSS on-board.
Cape Aerospace Technologies has a collaboration agreement in place between itself, the CSIR and Stellenbosch Univeristy. The aim is to advance the state of the art within the micro-to-small gas turbine industry.
The AISI has supported Cape Aerospace Technologies over the past few years to develop new technology in the field of micro gas turines.
We wish to thank NUMECA Fine\Turbo for their continued and excellent CFD support on turbomachinery.
In addition Cape Aerospace Technologies has contributed towards the growth of young aviators and scientists at Sakhikamva.
“The Sakhikamva Foundation, based in Cape Town, is a registered non–profit organization involved in aviation awareness and skills development for the youth and children in the aerospace industry. The Foundation believes that the future of South African aerospace industry is anchored with the country’s highly talented youth, its mission being to identify and develop this talent in ensuring that a solid foundation is laid to feed the Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) pipeline. It prides itself in building a future with the youth of South Africa and sets out to achieve its mission by hosting several programs and outreach projects each year. Come on board and join one of our exciting programmes.” – Fatima Jakoet
