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:
Goodrich Actuation Systems SAS, a UTC Aerospace Systems Company (GAS-F) is a French subsidiary of United Technology Corporation, one of the largest worldwide aerospace and defense supplier with an operating history of over 135 years. Goodrich Actuation Systems SAS headquarters are located at BUC and hold business in France (1 050 employees and a 2011 turnover of 264 M€). UTC AEROSPACE SYSTEMS benefits from the know-how resulting from the merging of the former companies SAMM, Lucas Aerospace, Bronzavia, Hamilton Sundstrand, Claverham and Goodrich Aerospace Systems - leaders in aeronautical actuation technologies. Today UTC AEROSPACE SYSTEMS supplies a large range of Aeronautical Components and Systems, from classical hydraulic actuators to the latest state of the art Fly-By-Wire Systems and Power by Wire (EHA). Positioned on the whole Airbus family for the supply of its actuation systems for PFC (A300 to the A380), UTC AEROSPACE SYSTEMS is a reference partner for European large-scale and complex projects. UTC AEROSPACE SYSTEMS is the main supplier on the large civil aircraft market, e.g. the EHA and EBHA for Primary Flight Controls on the A380. UTC AEROSPACE SYSTEMS is also the leader in helicopter flight control for Eurocopter Fr from classical hydraulic Skirrel to the FBW NH 90. On the missiles and launchers segment UTC AEROSPACE SYSTEMS has developed thrust vector control including electro –mechanical actuation systems based on a direct drive architecture. UTC AEROSPACE SYSTEMS is involved in major new technology projects preparing for the future “single aisle” aircraft and middle size helicopter. With long time experience in various research and innovative Aeronautical actuation systems, UTC AEROSPACE SYSTEMS has been involved in the largest research projects funded by the European Commission in the aerospace sector, including FP6 POA and MOET and FP7 TRIADE.
UTC AEROSPACE SYSTEMS has the skilled personnel (project manager, engineers and technicians) and the development facilities requested for this project:
Goodrich Actuation Systems SAS, a UTC Aerospace Systems Company, will be the Coordinator in ACTUATION 2015.
The Coordinator (UTC AEROSPACE SYSTEMS) is responsible for all aspects of the interface between the project and the EC. UTC AEROSPACE SYSTEMS has appointed an ACTUATION2015 Coordinator (Laurent Brault) who will be the focal point for the overall coordination of the project as well as for administrative and financial content. The ACTUATION2015 coordinator’s responsibilities will be to:
The Project Support Team will be in charge of daily management work and logistics.
The Support Team will be made of
A Quality and Risk manager to be appointed by UTC AEROSPACE SYSTEMS (Jimmy Grutus) in charge of establishing and validating quality control procedures, risk management procedures and risk register management. The Quality and Risk manager will be supported by the Project Office that will take care of the daily monitoring of quality control and risk register follow-up.
