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

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.

Role in the Project

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.
