The objective of ACTUATION2015 is to develop and validate a common set of standardised, modular and scalable EMA modules that address cost, reliability and weight requirements from the airframers.

These EMA modules will enable:

  • A reduction of the overall Life Cycle Cost (LCC) (development, acquisition, certification, maintenance, operation)
  • An improvement of the reliability and the quality
  • A reduction of the overall system weight
  • Increased safety margins

The project will also mature the technology up to a Technology Readiness Level (TRL) of 5 while preparing qualification and standardisation material.

As a result, ACTUATION2015 will contribute to European leadership in electric actuation standardisation.
