Inlägg av Internationalisering, Akademi, Innovair, Vinnova, Övrigt

NLR Webinar – The future is Circular – Closing the loop in aviation
February 4th, 12:30-13:30 CET

To achieve truly sustainable aviation, emissions and use of resources over the whole lifecycle of an aircraft must be taken into account, in line with the principles of a circular economy. Royal NLR is aiming to do just that over the coming years, thereby helping to design the first circular aircraft. During the ’Week of the Circular Economy’, NLR will organise a free webinar on this topic.

Programme:

Welcome by Paul Eijssen – NLR
Opportunities for aviation in the circular economy by Prof. David PeckTechnische Universiteit Delft
What is a circular aircraft? by Charlotte Meerstadt – NLR
Ambitions in circularity within EREA and NLR by Ligeia Paletti – NLR

Clean Sky and Sweden: Delivering climate-neutral aviation together

Inlägg av Internationalisering, Clean Sky, Innovair, GKN Aerospace, Saab Aeronautics, Vinnova

In the November issue of Clean Sky E-news it is noted that Clean Sky’s Executive Director Axel Krein presented Clean Sky’s sustainable aviation programme at Innovair’s annual meeting on 29 October. In addition the following about Clean Sky and Sweden is included:

Clean Sky and Sweden: Delivering climate-neutral aviation together

Sweden has a proud history in aeronautics, and Clean Sky’s Executive Director Axel Krein was honoured to present Clean Sky’s sustainable aviation programme at Innovair’s annual meeting today.

Sweden is a strong supporter of Clean Sky’s mission to achieve climate-neutral aviation by 2050. The goals of Sweden’s National Aeronautics Strategy involve reducing the climate impact of aviation, and the motivation of the Swedish aerospace sector towards making zero-emission aviation a reality can be clearly seen through their active involvement in Clean Sky.

Currently, 15 of Clean Sky’s participants hail from Sweden, and they are involved in 30 different projects. Two Swedish companies – Saab and GKN – have been Members of Clean Sky since its inception, and both are still heavily involved in Clean Sky’s sustainable aviation activities.

In February 2016, Clean Sky signed Memoranda of Understanding with two Swedish regions – Västra Götaland and Östergötland. The aim of these MoUs is to boost local industrial development in aviation and support smart specialisation in European regions, harnessing European funding sources like the European Structural and Regional Investment Funds (ESIF) to do so.

The Västra Götaland region aimed to reduce the environmental footprints from civil aviation by further boosting regional industrial development within the aeronautics sector, including large companies, SMEs, industrial research institutes and universities. That goal has given rise to a number of projects focusing on innovative new technologies such as additive manufacturing and 3D printing. An ‘Aerospace Cluster Sweden’ has also been set up for SMEs, to help cement the area as an aviation technology hub.

In Östergötland, innovation hubs have been set up to improve collaboration and knowledge sharing across the Swedish aeronautics sector. These hubs focus on different specialisations that are relevant to aeronautics – for example, the Innovative Materials Arena, Additive Coodination in East central Sweden (ACES) a digitisation coordination hub focusing on 3D printing and additive manufacturing, and a hub focused on the Internet of Things.

We look forward to launching many more exciting new collaborative projects for climate-neutral aviation with our Swedish counterparts. Working together, we can truly make sustainable aviation a reality. Onwards and upwards!

Saab received Innovation Award from Airbus

Inlägg av Multi use, Internationalisering, Innovair, Saab Aeronautics, Vinnova, Övrigt

Saab has received an Innovation Award from Airbus in recognition of its Overheat Detection System (OHDS) which was selected for the Airbus A350. The system consists of a fiber optic sensing line placed near the engines and bleed air ducts and includes optical integrators and processing hardware and software for collecting data and control.

The OHDS system was originally developed as part of the Gripen program and is now being further developed in international programmes also for other applications like fire warnings.

UK-Sweden Aerospace Call 2020 – projects funded

Inlägg av Internationalisering, Innovair, GKN Aerospace, Saab Aeronautics, Vinnova

The projects resulting from the UK-Sweden joint Aerospace Call 2020 are listed below:

Collaborative projects in aeronautics funded through the Innovair/ATI call:

FIBRESENSE
FibreSense is a collaborative research led by Rolls-Royce with Saab as the key collaborator. The project will develop on-engine sensing capability using novel fibre-optic technologies, enabling much higher resolution data compared to present technologies. It will significantly improve engine diagnostics, improving aircraft availability.

COMPASS
The COMPASS project will develop a new lightweight, energy efficient and cost-efficient solution for communication sensors and is a collaboration between Microchip and the Compound Semiconductor Catapult in the UK and Saab in Sweden. Small, lightweight sensors at lower cost could enable wide spread adoption of detect and avoid radars and imaging landing radars for all weather landings for commercial airplanes, resulting in safer flights and reduced energy consumption.

DEMAND-REPAIR
The DEMAND-REPAIR project will be led by GKN Sweden and will involve Sweden’s University West in Trollhättan and Phoenix scientific and TWI in the UK. The project will explore novel advanced manufacturing technologies and innovative titanium powders to repair the next generation of aero-engine components. Using these techniques to repair components will create drastic improvements to the sustainability of the industry, reducing raw material requirements and manufacturing efficiencies and extending the lifespan and maintenance of aircraft.

SIMLIGHT
The SIMLIGHT project, led by the ESI Group in Sweden and including Saab and the International technegroup in the UK will study the computational electromagnetic (CEM) simulation of the effects of lightning strikes on the fully connected aircraft. The project will enable design optimisation and reduced size, weight and increased efficiency of airborne electronics, as well as optimising electromagnetic compatibility and interference, improving the operational performance of aircraft and on board experience for passengers.

Open VISTA
The open Vista project is led by Saab in Sweden with GE Cheltenham as collaborators.  The project will evaluate the integration of Saab’s 3-D Terrain database and 3-D Synthetic Vision System into GE’s Open Flight Deck Architecture for both the commercial and military aerospace market. The project will significantly improve advanced avionics systems and flight decks, including applications for Synthetic Vision Systems (SVS), Terrain Awareness Warning Systems (TAWS) and digital moving maps. The technology will be an enabler to accelerating the progression of cockpit avionics and therefore safer operations. Additionally, such technology is likely to benefit the airlines in operations and therefore lower fuel burn by optimising approach paths into airports.

AMASING IMC
The project, led by Renishaw in the UK and with GKN Sweden as partners will help develop the technology required to build large structures in a laser powder bed fusion machine, making it possible to produce larger components at a higher deposition rate. This will enable mass savings to be made for future generations of parts and also whole-life emissions and cost savings.

Collaborative project in aeronautics funded through Vinnova/ ATI:

HEPBAS
This project is led by Electroflight in the UK, with Baines Simmons and Sweden’s Heart Aerospace and research institute RISE as collaborators. It will research, develop, and ground test an innovative prototype high-energy propulsion battery system for electric aircraft. This will help to accelerate the transition of short-haul air travel to electric propulsion.
