History

Born out of collaboration between major UK players in the aeronautical, defence, automotive and government sectors, we are extremely proud of our industry heritage.

Sharing a common goal to achieve significant advances in the design processes of aerodynamic structures, a cross sector consortium of organisations from academia, government and industry was established in 2007. Involving BAE Systems, Airbus, ARA, BMT Fluids, Eurostep, Fraser-Nash Consultancy, MBDA, Microsoft, PCA Engineers, Quadratics, QinetiQ, Rolls-Royce, Westland Helicopters and Williams F1 with matched funding from Innovate UK, the consortium spent three years investigating how it could drive a major reduction between concept and production of aerodynamic structures.

Following the positive results achieved, CFMS was formed in 2010, offering on demand access to a leading edge HPC cluster, delivering modelling and simulation consultancy and support to organisations of all sizes, bridging the gap between industry and academia.
