Project description

A new generation of aircraft

New solutions need to be developed to address the needs of future generation aircraft in terms of maturation, demonstration and innovation. The EU-funded GAM-2020-SYS project will build high technology readiness level (TRL) demonstrators in areas such as power management, cockpit, wing and landing gear. The project will also develop, among other things, integrated cockpit environments for new functions and operations, innovative cabin and cargo technologies, innovative and integrated electrical wing architecture components, novel technologies and optimised architecture for landing gears as well as high-power electrical generation and conversion architecture.


The Systems ITD will develop and build highly integrated, high TRL demonstrators in major areas such as power
management, cockpit, wing, landing gear, to address the needs of future generation aircraft in terms of maturation,
demonstration and Innovation.
