Design, development, manufacture and qualification of smart fly-by-wire actuators for swashplate, control surface and tilting wing / large flap actuation. Focus shall be initially put on trade-off analysis between existing actuation technologies (mainly EHSV, EHA and EMA) and on system redundancy complemented by either functional or technological dissimilarity or a suitable mix of both. The final units will be integrated in the tiltrotor demonstrator.
