Next Generation Smart Active Inceptors System development for Tilt Rotor application

Project description

Innovative inceptors design for next-generation tilt rotors

Civil tilt rotor technology can revolutionise how people travel. Tilt rotors can operate from airports or smaller facilities and they are convenient, cost-effective and safe. The SAIS project is funded within the framework of the CS-Joint Undertaking, a public-private partnership set up to strengthen European aero-industry collaboration, global leadership and competitiveness. The project will design, develop, produce and empower a smart active inceptors system for the cockpit of the future civil tilt rotor aircraft. It will focus on the inceptor’s mechanical process and study ergonomics, electromechanical sensor actuators, haptic capabilities and command logic with diagnostic capabilities to achieve safety-of-flight (SOF) qualification of the system, allowing flight trial activities. The project will perform technological innovation, creating an active inceptor model designed on the basis of the best ergonomic setting evaluated.
