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:
NLR is the aerospace knowledge enterprise in the Netherlands. NLR research is geared towards safer, more sustainable and efficient air transport. NLR supports government in implementation of their policies and strengthen the innovative capacity of industry. NLR's facilities include wind tunnels, research aircraft, military and civil flight simulators, ATM tower and radar simulators and a wide variety of research and development capabilities.
NLR’s role in Actuation2015 is focused on Qualification, Validation, Certification and Standardisation of modular EMA.
