ACTIonRCraft Report Summary

Project ID: 714249
Funded under: H2020-EU.

Periodic Reporting for period 1 - ACTIonRCraft (Anti-Crash lightweight fuel bladder Tank Integrated on a new RotorCraft)

Reporting period: 2016-06-20 to 2017-12-19

Summary of the context and overall objectives of the project

The objectives of the ACTIonRCraft project are to design, develop and manufacture seven anti-crash lightweight fuel bladder tanks which will integrate for the very first time ASY robust, light and ecofriendly innovative technologies:
ASY functionalized liner,
ASY lighter fabric,
ASY solvents without pictogram
These anti-crash lightweight fuel bladder tanks with limited environmental footprint will be tested, verified and validated for the high speed compound helicopter

Work performed from the beginning of the project to the end of the period covered by the report and main results achieved so far

At this step of the study, ASY used the time to:
- Stabilize the specification of the fuel storage by adjusting it between the real need for the major functions according to what can be technically produced.
- Design the 7 tanks according to the structure
- Adjust the right quantity of material to respect the minimal resistance according to the max weight.

Progress beyond the state of the art and expected potential impact (including the socio-economic impact and the wider societal implications of the project so far)

The ambition of ACTIonRCraft is to be a showcase project to demonstrate in a relevant environment (i.e. flight tested) the installation of the combined ASY technological breakthrough (i.e. the ASY functionalized liner with the ASY lighter fabric and with the ASY solvents without pictogram) integrated into new products (i.e. the next generation of crash resistant lightweight fuel bladder tanks).
