H2020 | TRAIL - Design, manufacture and deliver a high performance, low cost, low weight Nacelle Structure for Next Generation TiltRotor (NGCTR) - Technology Demonstrator (TD)
TRAIL is a project co-financed by the European Commission in the frame of Clean Sky 2 (Horizon 2020). The Consortium, led by Institute of Aviation, who will also be responsible for design, analyses, and testing, is composed of 7 Partners:
Politecnico di Milano (vibration, noise and Bird Strike aspects), Trelleborg Sealing Solutions (firewalls), NLR (VARTM), LA Composite (composite elements manufacturing and assembly), PW-Metrol and Szel-Tech (both responsible for metallic parts manufacturing).
The project will design, develop, test and deliver an innovative Engine Nacelle with engine mounting system for Leonardo Helicopter's NGCTR TD (Next Generation Civil TiltRotor Technology Demonstrator).
Politecnico di Milano's "Dipartimento di Scienze e Tecnologie Aerospaziali" is leading the "Technology development" work package.
