TitleIMM – Interiors with Multifunctional Materials
Project id.152
Reference sectorAEROSPACE
IP Protection LevelCarrying out the activities necessary for the request, to the competent offices, of the recognition of Intellectual Property for the innovative solutions developed.
Description of the innovation projectThe need is to develop solutions that can guarantee the use of seats "crashworthy" and cladding panels to the inside of the cabin and cargo compartments of high performance vibro-acoustic, thermal and fire resistance without implying an unacceptable increase in the their weight.
State of dev.Concept
Industrial applicationCommercial Aviation
Market segmentThe market for civil aircraft, including also the business jet, is expected to grow over the next 20 years to about 56.700 units with a value of more than $2,500 billion. It is maintaining its considerable importance with a positive growth, the sector of commuter in which the project IMM intends to fit itself.
Advantage factorIn the field of Interiors are today require the reduction of production costs and the weight reduction. The IMM project intends to introduce new materials, advanced technologies, innovative configurations, alternative processes to achieve those targets.
Commercial challengeThe objectives of the research project affect, in a medium-long term, about two thirds of the overall cost management of civil aircraft: in fact, plan and carry an element of Interiors lighter leads to a beneficial effect on fuel consumption and to a reduction of the total mass of the aircraft which are calculated as a function of airport taxes and navigation
