COLLINS AEROSPACE – APPLIED RESEARCH & TECHNOLOGY
Collins Aerospace, a Raytheon Technologies company, is a global leader in technologically advanced and intelligent solutions for the global aerospace and defense industry. Collins Aerospace has the capabilities, comprehensive portfolio and expertise to solve customers’ toughest challenges and to meet the demands of a rapidly evolving global market.
Collins Aerospace Applied Research and Technology’s (previously UTRC-I) mission is to accelerate transformative aerospace technologies for a safer, more connected and sustainable world. Collins ART acts as a research hub for Collins Aerospace, with a mission to develop advanced technologies – “what’s next” – for all the businesses of Collins Aerospace, and to work with other industry, national labs and academic institutions to broaden the scope and impact of new technology developments along the value chain.
Collins ART’s researchers based out of the Cork, Ireland office are part of a global team who investigate the next generation of innovative electrical, thermo-mechanical and autonomus systems for aerospace, for the more-electric and hybrid-electric aircraft, and more intelligent aircraft systems, model-based systems engineering, autonomy and human-machine interaction among others.
EVEKTOR SRO (EVE)
Evektor (EVE) is a design and engineering organisation focused on the aeronautical and automotive industry. EVE provides complete development of the products including prototype production and their testing. Its activities range from design of single parts through automotive design to the design of airplanes.
Since 1992, the main activities of EVE have been designing and development of airplanes. In 1996, EVE was developing EV-97 Eurostar – a light all-metal airplane. In the years 2008-2010, EVE participated at the design and materialising of the first hydrogen fuel cell powered aircraft Rapid-200FC within FP6 ENFICA-FC project. This participation encouraged EVE to apply for a financial support of its own fully electric, battery powered aircraft project. The first prototype of electric motor-powered aircraft SportStar EPOS took off from the airport in Kunovice in 2013. This successful first electric flight opened a path to other following activities of EVE in the field of design and engineering to accomplish safe, reliable and environment-friendly air transport.
TECHNISCHE UNIVERSITEIT EINDHOVEN (TU/e)
Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e) is a research-driven and design-oriented technical university, which mainly aims to educate young people at an academic level in the domain ‘engineering science and technology’.
The Electrical Engineering (EE) department of TU/E comprises 9 research groups whose competencies range from electrical and electromechanical power engineering via measurement and control, analog and digital IC design, to telecommunications.
The Center for Wireless Technology, Eindhoven (CWTe) is part of the TU/e department of Electrical Engineering. In CWTe, the groups Electromagnetic, Mixed-Signal Micro-Electronics, Signal Processing Systems, Optical Communication and Electronic Systems work together to address research questions across these research areas from the wireless channel through the bottom of the networking layer. The CWTe integrates various laboratories designed for research on wireless antennas covering an area of 700 m2: from near-field scanning (the testing of antennas in a small space), to the testing of new chips on wafers. The facilities include a fully shielded metal room in which the most sensitive electronics can be measured. In a system integration lab, chips can be linked to other components. In particular, the combination of the various laboratories and the clustering of the associated expertise in one place make the CWTe unique in Europe.
AIRCRAFT DEVELOPMENT AND SYSTEMS ENGINEERING (ADSE) BV (ADSE)
ADSE is a Netherlands-based company created in 1997, specialised in aircraft design, integration, certification and consulting. ADSE has successfully exported that know-how into the defense, and rail industries.
In the course of time, ADSE has worked with the world’s leading CS 25 Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs). ADSE supported the development of the Bombardier DASH8-400, CRJ700/900 and C-Series (now Airbus A220), the Mitsubishi’s MRJ, the Airbus A380 and A350XWB. ADSE also worked on the PC12 NG, PC24, Evektor’s EV-55 Outback and on Kopter’s SH09 light helicopter.
For ADENEAS, ADSE will be contributing to requirements, scalability of technologies and systems towards full scale application in commercial aircraft, including aircraft-level integration and certification for the purpose of demonstration and future applications in series production.
