Title CAPRI - Landing Gear System with intelligent actuation.
Project id.153
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 CAPRI project aims to develop innovative technologies for the main components and subsystems of the landing gear of a commercial aircraft, in order to improve the "mission effectiveness" in terms of performance, reliability, maintenance, flight safety, and to develop a strategy for the qualification and certification that makes extensive use of simulation models of elementary parts each duly validated by laboratory tests at full scale or dedicate mock-up. Furthermore will be carried out a study of the machining technology with low environmental impact in the field of green technologies.
