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:
Microsemi Power Module Products (MPMP), founded in 1983, located in Bruges (Bordeaux area, France), 30 employees, design, develop, manufacture and market power electronic modules for power conversion applications (main market sectors are Aerospace, Military, Medical and Industrial).
Microsemi MPMP will be involved in SP2 (Modules technology), WP2.4 (Power Drive Electronics) with contribution for :
- WP2.4.1 - Power Module Specification (targeting module standardization for actuators range)
- WP2.4.1 - Semiconductor technology trade-off (targeting reliability improvement and low cost product)
- WP2.4.1 - Integration and assembly technology trade-off (with same reliability and cost targets)
- WP2.4.4 - Power module design, manufacture and test
