Development of unmanned and autonomous systems are fasting forward. However, uncertainties remains about integrating these systems safely into airspace. ‘Safe Flight, tackle technical issues in terms of incorporating a variety of state-of-the-art technology into real-world cases.
More importantly, it addresses the fundamental requirement and direct path to certification and regulatory approvals for operations of such systems. GKN Aerospace will partners with University of Bath, 3UG Autonomous Systems and Callen-Lenz to advance the Secure Flight.
NAPKIN will model and pilot a UK-wide sustainable aviation network encouraging zero carbon emissions. That is to say, it provides accessibility where surface infrastructure is missing. Also it aims to UK industry development and productivity.
Heath-row Airport will Manage the NAPKIN in collaboration with Technological and academic partners. Key Aerospace players taking parts are, GKN Aerospace, Rolls Royce, Highlands & Islands Airports, Deloitte, Cranfield Aerospace Solutions. Academic Partner are London City Airport, University of Southampton, University College London and Cranfield University.
MIAMI – British multinational aerospace components firm GKN Aerospace is developing sustainable technologies for the future of aviation industries. The company will lead three ground-breaking joint projects as part of the Future Flight Challenge. All Projects will be conducted from the latest £32M Industrial Technology Hub in Bristol.
The Future Flight Challenge is a four-year, £125m ISCF initiative of UK Research and Innovation, to create more efficient aviation solutions. Firstly, focuses are on production of advanced integrated aviation systems to allow new classes of electric and autonomous air vehicles.
Minister for Business, Paul Scully, said, “We’re investing in ambitious projects to read more ⇒
