The SAIS Project is part of the European Clean Sky 2 research and development program, created to launch public-private partnerships between the European Commission and the European aviation industry with the aim of creating innovative aircraft in terms of environmental impact, i.e. more efficient in consumption and generally more respectful of the environment throughout their entire life cycle.

Grant Agreement number: 886538.
Call di riferimento: H2020-CS2-CFP10-2019-01

It is a CS2 project under the Fast Rotorcraft - Innovative Aircraft Demonstration Platforms (FRC IADP), whose objective is the study of innovative systems that can be integrated with a technological demonstrator operated with rotors and propellers identified in a new generation tiltrotor (the Next -Gen Civil Tiltrotor, NGCT) of Leonardo Helicopter Division.

Abstract

The SAIS project aims to respond to a need of Leonardo Helicopters Division regarding the study design of new generation of flight control systems for Tiltrotor aircraft.

Main Objectives

The aim of the project is the design, development, manufacturing and qualification of a new flight control architecture ergonomically designed and characterized by logical commands, diagnostic capabilities and above all by the presence of haptic sensors, capable of providing a sensory perception of the activation of the command, despite the connection between the command and the actuators is electronic (fly-by-wire).

Digital twin analysis for assembly and A/C installation, support to EFA qualification and inceptor installation. Study and definition of reliable inceptor sets composed by mechanical and software sub-systems to be integrated in the NGCTR-TD cockpit.

Reliable smart sensor and actuators to translate the pilots’ commands to tilt rotor desired motion. Definition, development, simulation and testing of haptic feature rendering algorithms. Development of the inceptor simulation tool. Inceptor ergonomic optimization with VR environment verifications. Test rigs design and manufacturing and tests setup.
