Objective

Following the Strategic Research Agenda top objectives namely to meet society’s need and to achieve global leadership for Europe, our consortium propose to address a set of solutions regarding to the following High Level Target Concepts; the cost efficiency air transport system HLTC and the Ultra green air transport system HLTC.

ADVance Integrated Tail Cone deals with aircraft composite structure development and production. The tailcone part has a very special location regarding to aircraft systems. Tail cone is together a component of the aircraft fuselage (ATA 54) and also an interface of the Auxiliary Power System (ATA 49). . ADVITAC project aims at federating a consortium which has an overview of all the set of problems concerning tailcone structure and APU integration. Significant weight and cost savings are expected after all partners’ issues have been consolidated in a design to cost approach.

ADVITAC project should aims at:

 Lowering production cost by 30% regarding to the actual composite aero structure.
 Lowering weight by 10% regarding to the actual composite aero structure.
 Specify new generation of composite architecture allowing an extensive function integration (acoustic, fireproof, electrical and strength)
 Significantly improve knowledge of interaction between innovative technologies allowing fully automated integrated process including automated dry perform, Trough Thicness Reinforcement and infusion process.
