Sir Lawrence Wackett Aerospace Centre

The Sir Lawrence Wackett Aerospace Centre is a research centre created in conjunction with the School of Mathematics.[5] It is located in Port Melbourne adjoining other Aerospace companies. The centre aims to "Create new intellectual property in partnership with industry, through research and design that addresses real world issues, for commercial use and development.".[6] In 2004 a Memorandum of Understanding was signed between the centre and the Indian National Aerospace Laboratory. The MoU involved the centre undertaking design work for Indian aircraft.[7] In 2007 it was successful in winning a $5 Billion tender from the Australian Department of Defence over 20 years to upgrade and replace the helicopter fleet.[8]

National Aerospace Resource Centre

The National Aerospace Resource Centre is a research collection partnership between the Royal Aeronautical Society's Australian Division and the RMIT School of Aerospace, Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering.[9][10]

It consists of approximately 100,000 volumes, including: technical reports (from DSTO), conference proceedings, books, videos, aircraft manuals and journals, and is housed at RMIT's Bundoora West Library.[9]
