RoRCraft project approved by the national authorities, as complementary to Clean Sky 2
The activities proposed in RoRCraft CompAct are complementary with the activities of the RoRCraft – RotorCraft fuselage manufacturing for the RACER demonstrator, project under Clean Sky 2 JTICS2-2014-CPW01- FRC-02-01
Objectives: the project aims to enhance the capabilities to design, manufacture and certify according to airworthiness regulations large hybrid (metal – composite) airframe structures.
Areas of expertise developed within the frame of this project include design methods, manufacturing technologies for devices and finite parts, and assembly and testing technologies for hybrid structures. The outcome of the project will enable the development and the application of new technical solutions (more efficient and safe) for the manufacturing and testing for the fuselage and obtaining the permit to fly for the LifeRCraft Technological Demonstrator.
