Novel F.P.7 Concept
Aeronautics and Air Transport Research Themes (1)
  • The Greening of Air Transport
  • Conforms to the Ultra Green HLTC of ACAREs
    Strategic Research Agenda
  • Embraces both the global issue of climate change
    (CO2, Nox, Soot, water vapour, particulates) as
    well as the local issues of noise and air quality
  • Addresses green engine technologies, alternative
    fuels, novel aircraft /engine configurations,
    intelligent low-weight structures, improved
    aerodynamic efficiency, airport operations and
    air traffic management as well as manufacturing
    and recycling processes.

Aeronautics and Air Transport Research Themes (2)
  • Increasing Time Efficiency
  • Conforms to the Highly Time Efficient HLTC of
    ACAREs Strategic Research Agenda.
  • Aims at significant reduction of journey time
    through maintaining flight time within schedule
    and minimising the time that passengers have to
    spend in airports in the travel-related process.
  • Addresses the development and implementation of
    an innovative air traffic managements system
    integrating the air, ground and space
    components, and featuring greater automation,
    flexibility and aircraft autonomy.
  • Addresses as well airlines and airports

Aeronautics and Air Transport Research Themes (3)
  • Ensuring Customer Satisfaction and Safety
  • Conforms to the Highly Costumer Oriented HLTC of
    ACAREs Strategic Research Agenda, underlining
    the safety objective.
  • Aims at a quantum leap in passengers choice and
    schedule flexibility as well as at a significant
    reduction in accident rate in respond to the
    forecasted growth in air travel demand.
  • Addresses the technologies and services which
    will enable a transport system with a wider
    choice of aircraft ranging from very large
    airliners, medium size, business jets, tilt
    rotors to personal, small-size aircraft, with the
    highest levels of safety as well as comfort,
    health conditions and services.

    enhance the whole enterprise process, including
    the integration of the supply chain, from
    conceptual design to product development and
    manufacturing including in-service operations.
  • Addresses as well the developments needed towards
    the zero-maintenance aircraft, as well as towards
    lean airport, aircraft and air traffic management
    operations for substantial reduction of operating

Aeronautics and Air Transport Research Themes (5)
