We dive into the role of the AMGC and take a look at some of their security and space related projects including the Industry 4.0 Smart Factory; Miniature thermoelastic stress analysis camera; lightweight carbon fibre body composite armour; Black Sky Aerospace and use of VR & AI in manufacturing.
We’re joined by Dr Jens Goennemann, Managing Director of the Advanced Manufacturing Growth Centre Ltd (AMGC). Jens joined AMGC as the inaugural Managing Director in 2016 where he brings extensive experience from overseeing large manufacturing operations in Australia and Europe.
Jens is Chairman of the German Australian Chamber of Industry and Commerce, a senior member of the Executive Committee for Industry 4.0 Advanced Manufacturing Forum, a Board Member of the Innovative Manufacturing CRC, a Fellow of the Australian Institute of Company Directors, and played a key role in the Prime Minister’s National COVID-19 Coordination Commission Manufacturing Taskforce.
He is also an avid skydiver and a triple Australian 4-way formation skydiving champion and was among 214 German skydivers who leapt into history 18,500ft above the Arizona desert in October 2014 to build the largest formation ever flown by one single nation.
