our challenges

Giving the Fourth Industrial Revolution Wings​
HANGAR pursues Industry 4.0 technologies that can transform commercial aerospace into a data-driven and semi-automated industry.
We are interested in big data and analytics, IIoT, additive manufacturing and other technologies that can optimize Connected Cargo and Connection (C3) and smart Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul (MRO) solutions.
Our goal is to enable aviation companies smart MRO processes as well as a short TAT (turn Around Time) on the one hand. On the other, we allow airlines, freight forwarders and lesors to convert outdated aircraft fleets into fully regulated “Smart Cargo Birds”, adding value to their supply chains.
We scout startups as well as accept applications to join our hub. Our program utilizes Aviation Group’s resources in Israel, providing local startups the advantages of accessing top of the line facilities close to home.
We seek Industry 4.0 startup companies to which we can serve as a gateway to the aerospace industry. The technologies we are interested in include supply chain and logistics, condition analysis, predictive maintenance, supply chain, visual recognition, IIoT, AR/VR, big data and data analytics and more.
