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:
DLR is German space agency and national research centre for aeronautics and space. The research portfolio ranges from fundamental to application-close research in the fields of aeronautics, space, transportation and energy.
DLR works in the Actuation2015 project on the development of an actuator modelling library, Actuator health monitoring and safety assessment. Furthermore virtual test will be made as well as development of a hierarchical data format for the structured integration of different actuator models.
