Environmentally friendly high speed aircraft

Objective

Business productivity would benefit from a significant reduction in air travel time, especially for long haul flights. The main objective of the HISAC project is to establish the technical feasibility of an environmentally compliant supersonic small size t ransport aircraft (S4TA), through a MultiDisciplinary Optimisation (MDO) approach and focused technological improvements. Based on their experience, the HISAC partners have chosen the following avenue: - Translation of the environmental objectives into qu antified design criteria applicable to an S4TA - Adaptation of numerical models and tools essential to the multidisciplinary design process - Development and validation of the most critical aircraft and engine technologies - Establishment of rules and meth ods to solve key technology integration issues, through shape design - Application of MDO methods, using the results of the above, to obtain: · aircraft specifications compliant with environmental objectives, exploring a broad range of configurations · q uantified trade-offs between aircraft performance and environmental constraints HISAC will provide: - achievable specifications for an environmentally compliant and economically viable small size supersonic transport aircraft - recommendations for future supersonic environmental regulations (community noise, emissions, sonic boom) - enabling technologies, and a road-map for their further maturation and validation, up to a future Proof Of Concept The 37 partners of HISAC consortium are coming from 13 diff erent countries, including one from Poland and four from Russia. Major aircraft manufacturers (Dassault Aviation, Alenia, EADS-M, Sukhoi (SCA) and engine manufacturers (Snecma, Rolls Royce, Volvo, CIAM) associated with five SMEs represent the industrial b ackbone of the consortium. Eleven Research centres and nine Universities will lead the scientific activities. The total budget is around 26 M?, with 46% allocated to the Research Centres.
