ACTUATION2015 simultaneously addresses the development and validation of standardised, modular and pooled EMA for all airframe systems. To achieve this ambitious objective, ACTUATION2015 gathers a critical mass of expertise in a wide range of skills (Component suppliers, Actuator suppliers, Actuation system supplier, A/C manufacturers, and Certification Authorities) and, especially for standardisation, the main stakeholders in the field.

The ACTUATION2015 Consortium has been drawn up in this spirit and the consortium gathers 54 partners. Goodrich Actuation Systems SAS, a UTC Aerospace  Systems Company is coordinating the project.

The consortium includes:

  • The main European players in actuator and component suppliers
  • The main European players of the Business, Regional and Commercial aircraft industry and the Helicopter industry
  • European Standardisation authorities (CEN)
  • R&T and test centres from all over Europe, with international reputation in aircraft equipment development (design, analysis, manufacturing, test), with past and recognized experience on many aircraft programs (A350, F7X, etc.) for the above key European players
  • Universities from several European countries, each of them internationally recognized for the quality of their scientific work, in the field of electric actuation standardisation. Several of them have long-term relationship with both aircraft manufacturers and equipment providers, which means a strong pre-existing confidence.
  • SMEs – ten SMEs work in ACTUATION2015 and cover a wide range of activities (software, manufacturing and assembly, R&T and test centres, R&T project support)

Organizational Activities

Created in 1908 , Clemessy is a French company belonging to the Eiffage Group. A work force of more than 5100 employees provides all the expertise required to successfully complete your projects and support you in your innovations.
In the Aerospace world, Clemessy Group proposes some specific know how such as:
· Turn key solution supplier for equipment test bench (Reverse actuator, landing gear, brake, fuel pump,  …)
· Aeronautics Engineering & Cabling (Harnesses, Breakout boxes,…).
· Ironbird
· Radio Frequency & Telemetry
Clemessy as a Platinum National Instrument partner, developed a specific product named “TestInView” based on NI product for design and validation of electronic systems during MIL, SIL & HIL phases.

Role in the Project

Clemessy is involved into the design and development of the Control command and data acquisition system of the Modular test bench dedicated to validate the modularity concept of the actuators.
The solution is an evolution of our TestInView turnkey product for test benches called TestInView Evolution.
TestInView Evolution gives test engineers capabilities to federate and optimize all the aspects and proceeds of tests process, starting from the definition of the hardware platform, to the test plans, the data acquisition plan and up to the test results automated analysis. The platform allows the integration of simulation models of the prototype and/or the environment, giving the Hardware In the Loop capabilities. The CLEMESSY contribution is the design, development delivery and validation of the hardware and software platform of the Test monitoring and execution system that will be interfaced to the test rig and the Unit Under Test.
