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:
Fokker Landing Gear is specialized in landing gear and landing gear related components. It was founded in the early 1960s as a special division of truck builder DAF. In September 2004, our company was incorporated in Fokker Technologies.
Our core competence is the design, production and repair and overhaul of landing gears, in which we have over 30 years of experience. In addition we produce a variety of hydro-mechanical assemblies such as actuators and transmissions. We recognize the aviation industry's requirements for safe, light, durable and cost-efficient systems that have to perform under the most extreme of conditions and on the highest safety level. Our highly educated workforce, including 40 engineers and 80 mechanics, translates these requirements into the best possible solutions, mastering both traditional and newly developed technologies.
Fokker Landing Gear supports NLR in the evaluation of Qualification Test Plans for modules and actuators, the development of a modular certification approach, and the evaluation of certification support tools, from a Landing Gear integrator perspective.
