Design, manufacture and deliver a high performance, low cost, low weight Nacelle Structure for Next Generation TiltRotor (NGCTR) - Technology Demonstrator (TD)


The aim of this Topic is to design, manufacture, test and deliver an innovative tiltrotor nacelle structure for experimental flight aircraft (NGCTR-TD) starting from a basic architectural definition supplied by the IADP Leader. The Activity shall be done by mean of innovative, lightweight materials and industrialization technologies to allow the new architecture to be implemented with the opportunity, for some new technologies, to be investigated in terms of fire resistant materials, fixed-tilting fairing interface management and control of structural borne vibration. Moreover, the required activity will include the support of the IADP Leader to the nacelle integration into an innovative Tiltrotor Technology Demonstrator wing structure for the duration of the Clean Sky 2 programme. Please refer to the full topic descriptions document published in this call.
