Clean Sky is the most ambitious aeronautical research programme ever launched in Europe. A Public Private Partnership between the European Commission and the European aeronautics industry, Clean Sky coordinates research and innovation between industrial leaders, universities, research centres and SMEs.Clean Sky 2’s budget is €4 billion: €1.8 billion from the European Commission (from the Horizon 2020 programme budget); €2.2 billion from industrial partners; €1 billion from additional activities not included in the JTI work plan but which support the achievements of its objectives.

// AIM

Develop new technologies to reduce CO2 and other gas emissions from aircraft and reduce noise.

Milestone

01
Kick
Off
Initial project setup phase. In this phase, the consortium shares objectives, timelines and intermediate milestones with the Topic Manager.

02
System Requirements Review
Following initial research useful for framing the objectives to be achieved with the technological context, the requirements and technical specifications of the demonstrator or prototypes to be built are shared with the Topic Manager. It is also known as SRR.
03
Preliminary
Design Review
It Closes the preliminary design phase of the project. Its purpose is to review the conceptual approach to ensure that the planned technical activity meets the requirements. A PDR should present the basic system in terms of software, mechanics, power distribution, thermal management, and electronic design. Finally, the PDR should present preliminary estimates of weight, energy consumption and volume.

04
Critical
Design Review
The purpose of the Critical Design Review (CDR) is to review the design in detail to ensure that the design implementation meets requirements. The CDR closes the critical design phase of the project and presents the final designs through analysis, simulations, schematics, software code and completed test results. A CDR must be kept and signed before the project design is frozen and before any significant production begins. In fact, with the completion of the CDR, the production phase can start.
05
Test Readiness
Review
The Test Readiness Review (TRR) is conducted to determine if the system under consideration is ready to proceed to formal testing, deciding whether the testing procedures are complete and verifying their compliance with test plans and descriptions. A TRR is normally conducted prior to any type of major test setup, including hardware and software, and provides to the management the confidence that a system has undergone a thorough testing process and is ready for the next test phase.
06
Project
Clousure
In the case of a research project with a medium-high TRL, from TRL4 (Technological Development) to TRL 6 (realization of a Technological Demonstrator), the project ends with the completion of the test phases, the validation of the results and the drafting of summary and specification documents of the system examined and implemented.

Demonstrators

Small Air Transport
(SAT)

The Small Air Transport (SAT) is a Transversal Activity (TA) in the frame of Clean Sky 2 research project. SAT deals with small general aviation and commuter/feeder aircraft and their technology needs: ‘fixed wing’ aircraft between 4 and 19 seats.

The SAT Initiative proposed in Clean Sky 2 represents the R&D (Research & Development) interests of European manufacturers of small aircraft used for passenger transport and for cargo transport, belonging to EASA´s CS-23 (European Aviation Safety Agency Certification Specifications-23) regulatory base.

SAT main goal is to meet the Flightpath 2050 target whereby “90% of travellers within Europe are able to complete their journey, door-to-door within 4 hours”, improving overall European air mobility.

To enhance convergence towards an optimal and consistent Green aircraft, three different design loops will be performed by integrating key technologies developed in the frame of Clean Sky 2 Integrated Technology Demonstrators (ITDs):

  • Airframe, including topics that influence the overall design of aircraft structures;
  • Engines, for all propulsion solutions and power plants;
  • Systems, including on all on-board systems, equipment and interaction with the ATS.

Next-Generation Civil Tiltrotor
(NGCTR)

This demonstrator is part of the research and development line linked to the Innovative Aircraft Demonstrator Platforms (IADPs) under the Fast Rotorcraft (FRC) platform that aims at new configurations bridging the gap between conventional helicopters and fixed-wing aircraft: both in terms of speed and in terms of range / productivity.

Specifically, two demonstrators belong to this platform:

  1. The Next-Generation Civil Tiltrotor demonstrator (NGCTR), with end-user Leonardo spa Helicopter Division
  2. The Compound Rotorcraft demonstrator (aka RACER demonstrator), with end-user Airbus Helicopters sas

The aim of NGCTR is to design, install and demonstrate in flight innovative Civil Tiltrotor technologies enabling future prototype development, and show significant improvement with respect to the current state of the art Tiltrotors.

The primary objectives are to demonstrate the potential to reduce the CO2 and noise footprint, reduce the cost of ownership, and achieve high speed, high efficiency, and high productivity. The technology demonstrator will utilize an existing platform into which innovative technologies will be incorporated, which are scalable to different sizes of aircraft in the future as market requirements demand. The primary focus will be on:

  • Advanced wing architecture;
  • Tail structure and configuration;
  • Non-tilting engine installation with efficient nacelle architecture and split gearbox drivetrain;
  • Advanced Flight Control with a modular, distributed and scalable flight control system.

demonstrator

Specifically, two demonstrators belong to this platform:

  2. The Compound Rotorcraft demonstrator (aka RACER demonstrator), with end-user Airbus Helicopters sas

The RACER high speed research helicopter aims to demonstrate in flight that the compound rotorcraft configuration, implementing and combining cutting-edge technologies from the current Clean Sky 2 Programme, can open up new mobility roles that neither conventional helicopters nor fixed wing aircraft can currently cover in a way sustainable for both the operators and the industry. The project will ultimately demonstrate the capability to combine the following capabilities: payload capacity, high manoeuvrability, agility in vertical flight including capability to land on unprepared surfaces near obstacles and to load/unload rescue personnel and victims while hovering; long range, high cruise speed, low fuel consumption and emissions, low community noise impact, and high productivity for operators.

The RACER project essentially consists of the following main activities and deliveries:

  • Airframe structure and landing system: Advanced composite or hybrid metallic/composite construction, featuring low weight and aerodynamic efficiency;
  • Lifting rotor and propellers: Low drag hub, pylon and nacelles, flight test of 3D-optimised blade design;
  • Drive train and power plant: New drive-train architecture and engine installation optimised for the RACER configuration;
  • On board energy, cabin and mission systems: Implementation of the more electrical rotorcraft concept to minimise power off-takes from the engines and drive system;
  • Flight control, guidance and navigation: Smart flight control exploiting additional control degrees of freedom inherent to RACER configuration for best fuel economy and quieter flight;
  • RACER Demonstrator overall design, integration and testing.
