As part of the transition to an aeronautical industry 4.0, the deployment of connected objects is transforming the manufacturing and maintenance processes. Functionalizing the components of an aircraft is key technology to enable this transformation. It is about the in situ integration of sensors in structures and equipping them with cognitive capabilities to improve their manufacturing process and operational availability, without compromising safety. This is the objective of the MORPHO project – Manufacturing, Overhaul, Repair for Prognosis Health Overreach-, which will focus on designing and validating an innovative, robust and environmentally friendly industrial process to manufacture, monitor and recycle a new generation of smart structures for aeronautics, including the blades of new and future turbojets that are designed and manufactured using a hybrid configuration of advanced metal and composite.
FEUGA’s tasks within the project:
- Preparation of the data management plan
- Definition of communication and dissemination activities
- Development of communication and results dissemination materials
- Development of IPR management plan and guides
- Networking with stakeholders
- Advisory Board management
Smart manufacturing, Advanced Manufacturing Processes & Technologies, Aeronautics, Aerostructures
The consortium is made up of 10 partners from 6 countries: France, The Netherlands, Greece, Germany, Belgium and Spain.
