Innovative Thrust Reverser Actuator System (ITRAS)


The integration of the new generation of large turbofan engines with short nacelles, slim aero-lineslines and wing closed coupling pylon, requires much more compact and innovative solutions for the Thrust Reverser function. For Short-Medium Range Aircraft future application at first and further scalability to Long Range A/C, the Thrust Reverser concept can be compatible with an electrical Thrust Reverser Actuator System (TRAS) which power remains below 10-20KW per Nacelle. The proposed activity will consist of defining the best candidate in terms of electrical motors and the way they can be integrated in the Nacelle environment. Please refer to the full topic descriptions document published in this call.
