LifeRCraft Main Gear Box


The aim is to Design, Manufacture, Test and Support part of Main Gear Box modules for the Compound Rotorcraft Demonstrator IADP LifeRCraft. The Main Gear Box modules should include an optimized design to meet the ecological challenges and to be sustainable for environment, customer and industry. A innovative co-development strategy will be used for main module.
The Main Gear Box modules could include innovative designs, trend setting manufacturing processes, innovative materials but if the TRL of each innovation is lower than 4 in 2015 and if it is risky for the program, a conventional solution must be provided and might be implemented as a back-up.
