The new Boeing Aerospace & Autonomy Center advances the development of next-generation aircraft and the enabling technologies that allow for safe, autonomous flight. Boeing subsidiary, Aurora Flight Sciences, will operate the 100,000 square foot center. It will be located in a new 17-floor building in Kendall Square on the east side of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology campus. Currently, Aurora is working on aerospace autonomy at its existing research and development center in Kendall Square. Once complete, Boeing and Aurora engineers will move into the new facility in Cambridge, MA in 2020.
