compAct powerfUl anD reliAble piezoeleCtrIc acTuator for landing gear sYstems

Project description

Reliable electric actuators for landing gear

More electrically powered systems in aircraft could reduce fuel consumption and harmful emissions emanating from this growing industry. The replacement of hydraulic and pneumatic systems with electric ones is a key component of the weight-saving efforts of the aviation industry. The EU-funded project AUDACITY will demonstrate the use of a powerful compact piezoelectric actuator in landing gear systems but the technical challenges to be overcome abound. The project aspires to boost European competitiveness in the field, as demonstration of piezoelectric technology in the landing gears of more electric aircraft would be a first. If successful, the project will boost the quality and reliability of landing gear actuation systems.
