Collins Selected to Participate in Multiple EU Clean Aviation Projects


Reading time ( words)

Collins Aerospace has been selected to participate in seven projects under the European Union’s Clean Aviation Joint Undertaking. As part of the initiative, Collins will collaborate with European airframers, engine makers, suppliers and academia to develop disruptive sustainable aviation technologies. The company estimates that the funding it receives from Clean Aviation combined with its own R&D investments will reach €85 million. 

“With our expertise in a broad range of aircraft systems and a strong research and engineering presence in Europe led by our Applied Research and Technology (ART) organization, Collins is well-positioned to support the EU’s ambitious Clean Aviation goals,” said Mauro Atalla, senior vice president, Engineering & Technology for Collins. “Together with our industry partners, we will advance our shared commitment to net-zero flight by breaking new ground on a range of solutions critical to the next generation of sustainable aircraft—from hybrid-electric propulsion, to thermal management, to systems for novel wing designs.”

Pulling together the best talent and capabilities of the private and public sectors, the Clean Aviation Joint Undertaking is the European Union’s leading research and innovation program for transforming aviation towards a sustainable and climate neutral future. Projects that involve UK sites will be supported by funding from UK Research and Innovation, working in concert with Clean Aviation.

Below is a list of the project categories and projects in which Collins will participate. Collins will serve as project coordinator for HECATE.

Hybrid-Electric Powered Aircraft

  • HE-ART (Hybrid-Electric propulsion system for regional AiRcrafT)
  • TheMa4HERA (Thermal Management for Hybrid-Electric Regional Aircraft)
  • HECATE (Hybrid-ElectriC regional Aircraft distribution TEchnologies)
  • HERWINGT (Hybrid-Electric Regional Wing Integration Novel Green Technologies)

Ultra-Efficient Short & Medium Range Aircraft

  • SWITCH (Sustainable Water-Injecting Turbofan Comprising Hybrid-electrics)

Transversal Areas

  • HERA (aircraft concepts for Hybrid-Electric Regional Aircraft)
  • CONCERTO (Construction Of Novel CERTification methOds and means of compliance for disruptive technologies)

Catching Up With Alpha Circuit’s Prashant Patel

04/05/2022 | Dan Beaulieu, D.B. Management Group
There is plenty of evidence that the American PCB industry is going through a revitalization. While a few new companies are being established, others are being rejuvenated as investors gain more interest and confidence in domestic PCB companies. I reached out to Prashant Patel, owner and president of Alpha Circuit I LLC in the greater Chicago area. I wanted to hear about his investment and the unique path he took to owning a PCB shop.

James Webb Space Telescope en Route to Discover Origins of the Universe, Study Exoplanets

01/06/2022 | Thales
A joint program between NASA and its counterparts in Europe (ESA) and Canada (CSA), Webb will observe the beginnings of our Universe by reaching back in time to just a few hundred million years after the Big Bang. It will also observe exoplanets – planets outside the Solar System – that are comparable to our own, as well as the formation and evolution of stars and galaxies. The ultimate aim of this successor to the iconic Hubble space telescope is to discover galaxies that reach back to the relative beginnings of the Universe. This state-of-the-art time machine is expected to revolutionize all aspects of modern astronomy. It will unveil the hidden side of the Universe, namely stars enveloped in clouds of dust, molecules in the atmosphere of other worlds, and the light issuing from the first stars and galaxies.
