Magnetic Sensors with No Remanence for Aircraft Application


The objective of this project is to leverage on a breakthrough nanotechnology invented by a French SME, Neelogy, for high performance isolated magnetic sensors with no remanence, and adapt it for harsh environmental avionics constraints (high amplitude variation of operating temperature -60° to +125°C, depression, humidity, vibration and EMI/EMC constraints).
The same technology will be used for both current and voltage sensors.

Neelogy is the only participant to this project, but they are supported by subcontractors, who are experts in avionics standards and recommendations, especially for the electronics parts.

The project duration is 42 months. The goal is to have 5 prototypes of current sensors and 5 prototypes of voltage sensors at the end of the project, as requested in the Call for Proposal. With regard to commercial products, the objective is to have them available 1 to 2 years after the end of the project.

The project is organized in 16 Work Packages (in summary: simulation tools, test benches, design of measurement heads for Current and for Voltage, design of discrete analog and digital electronics, design of mechanical parts, test of mock-ups and prototypes, design of PCB, specification of ASIC).
It represents an effort of 62 Person-Months for Neelogy (internal resources). A scientific project manager, as well as a project coordinator will be assigned.

The total budget is 600k€ (515k€ for Research & Technology Development, 55k€ for Demonstration, and 30k€ for Management). It is spread as follows: 55% to Neelogy and 45% to Neelogy’s subcontractors.
