Innovations Applied for IP Protection Recently

Innovations applied for IP protection tracks new noteworthy patent applications published recently in the Aerospace, Defence & Security Sector including ground-breaking technologies and the company’s technological and strategic shift towards adoption of new technologies.

A 3D printed aircraft has been patented by Airbus which uses a shell-like structural component which is manufactured by a method using additive layer manufacturing for the creation of wings and a fuselage, among other applications.

Boeing has been issued a patent that would enable a message to be communicated from an aircraft. The system and method includes valves and nozzles which are distributed along wing of the aircraft and a fluid tank. A controller actuates valves which then generates a cloudburst from the content received at nozzles and is suspended in the air that displays the message.

Boeing is granted a patent that relates to a transportation pod that deploys from an aircraft or vehicle and descends to safely land. The pod is attached to an aircraft or vehicle. The pod includes walls that extend around and form a contained interior space that houses one or more travellers or cargo containers. During flight of the aircraft or vehicle, the pod deploys from the aircraft or vehicle while at an elevation above ground. A landing location is determined for the pod. While the pod is descending, the pod is steered towards and lands at the landing location.

Case Studies Involving Key Innovations

Spotlight

The Boeing Co, Raytheon Technologies Corp and Lockheed Martin Corp are amongst the top companies who are fastest in embracing disruption caused by emerging themes and creating value

GlobalData  captures news, deals, filings, jobs, patents, and social media signals etc. and gathers the activities around innovation-led initiatives supported in the respective organizations. Our analysis suggests that The Boeing Co has been most upfront in adopting emerging technologies amongst its peers.

Internet of Things, Cybersecurity and Cloud are the themes attracting most investment in the last five years

Data from March 2017 onwards

Note: GlobalData captures various data sets such as deals, filings, jobs, patents. Each data set score is combined (𝑥𝑠𝑐𝑎𝑙𝑒𝑑) to provide an overall weighted-average exposure score. The scores are then used to show the colors on the heat map and represent the level of exposure in which a darker shade represents higher levels of exposure while a lighter shade represents lower levels of exposure. Each cell in any respective column indicates the relative Company Investment Intensity of the ten tech themes compared across the list of companies for that theme.
