CfP Process and Competitive Selection
  • Proposals will be selected according to open and
    transparent competitive procedures
  • Open criteria agreed by the Governing Board
  • The selection will be done with the assistance of
    independent experts
  • CfPs will contain clear details of the assessment
    criteria that will be defined to select the best
    proposals having regard to all relevant factors.

CfP Proposed steps in the selection process
  • Preparation of Call for Proposals by a Member
  • Following the Annual Implementation Plan where
    CfPs are identified, the relevant Member of an
    ITD prepares an outline proposal with a first
    draft of specification and evaluation of
    associated cost (for internal reference).
  • The Member proposes a CfP Manager, who will
  • Prepares the detailed specification
  • Proposes the appropriate Internal/ITD Experts
    (minimum 2) - External/Independent Experts
    (minimum 2) from a general list provided by EC to
    the JU selected under JU control
  • Negotiates, together with a JU representative,
    with the applicants following the ranking list
  • Presents the negotiation results to the Steering

CfP Proposed steps in the selection process
  • Advertising CfPs
  • CfPs will be pre-announced on Clean Sky JUs own
    web site www.cleansky.eu (2009 CfP list in 11/08)
  • Clean Sky JUs own web site www.cleansky.eu with
    pointers in CORDIS, Transport web site, ASD
    websites, etc
  • The Director informs the National States
    Representative Group (NCPs activation via NSRG)
  • The Call text should include all necessary
    information on the contractual arrangements (with
    reference for confidential information if
  • All responses are submitted to the JU

CfP Proposed steps in the selection process
  • Negotiation Phase
  • The CfP Manager together with a JU representative
    begins the negotiation with the top-ranked
  • Confidential details may be disclosed under a
    confidentiality agreement in order to finalise a
  • If the agreement is not reached, the negotiation
    continues with the next applicant in the ranking
  • The results of the negotiation will be
    communicated to the ITD Steering Committee.

CfP Proposed steps in the selection process
  • Grant Agreement
  • The selected candidate(s) will sign the Partner
    Grant Agreement and become a Partner of the Clean
    Sky JU

All the process should be quick and flexible in
order to operate efficiently and perform the
demonstrations within the 7 year time frame.
CfP - Some Guidelines
  • A Member cannot apply to CfP proposed by another
    Member of the same ITD
  • A Member may apply to CfP proposed by another
    Member of another ITD, provided the global share
    on JU does not exceeds 50 for ITD Leaders or 25
    for Associates and provided it does not
    participate in writing the specification
  • A Partner may apply to CfP proposed by a Member
    of the same ITD, provided it does not participate
    in writing the specification
  • A Partner may apply to CfP proposed by a Member
    of another ITD.
  • 50/25/25 distribution between ITD Leaders /
    Associates / Partners computed on individual

JTI SFWA Steering Group Meeting Oct.25.2007 TLS
Demonstrators can be accomodated in SFWA budget
High-Speed Option 1 - UAV
High-Speed Option 2 - AlphaJet
Allows for 4 wingsets
  • Availability matches required timescales
  • Autonomous control good quality F/T data
  • But, requires FCS to be re-programmed a large
    remote range
  • Aircraft available at QinetiQ RUAG Design
  • Manual aircraft no FCS to re-program
  • Does not require remote range
  • But, accuracy of F/T measurements?

High-Lift Option 1 A320
High-Lift Option 2 - Falcon
  • Aircraft to be acquired modified
  • Option to restore re-sale after use?
  • Aircraft available at DLR ( Airbus)
  • But, to what extent can aircraft realistically
    be modified?

Demonstrators can be accomodated in SFWA budget
Innovative PowerPlant or Empennage FTB
  • Suitable aircraft to be acquired modified for
    flight test of innovative powerplant or empennage

Long Duration Flight Trials
  • Longer term trials of anti-contamination,
    anti-icing riblet surfaces
  • Modification of leading edge slats
  • Various candidate aircraft e.g. Airbus Beluga,
    DLRs A320, ...

Demonstrators can be accomodated in SFWA budget
System demonstration package
30 ME
  • RAMSES demonstrator
  • High Voltage DC-reversible Networks
  • Fuel Cell demonstrator
  • 1MW capability test
  • Removal of Airbus contribution to the FMS-demo

SFWA ITD Flight Demonstrator Options
  • 1. High Speed Flight Demonstrator
  • Objective Large scale flight test of passive and
    active flow and loads control solutions on all
    new innovative wing concepts to validate low drag
    solutions at representative Mach and Reynolds
    Numbers. Easy access to the demonstrator, limited
    certification issues, quick exchangeability of
    test items (e.g. pairs of wings). Envisaged to be
    used at least in two major phases of the project.
  • Option 1 UAV
  • UAVs which offer 100 suitable dimension, size
    and performance may not be available. Discussion
    ongoing. Decision needs to be taken to enable
    conduct of major flight test campaign at the end
    2010! Leads times and budget critical.gt Decision
    expected in first half of 2008.
  • Option 2 Alpha-Jet
  • Explicit offer from SFWA Associate Partners
    Qinetiq and RUAG to use partially converted
    (re-wing) Alpha Jet from the available test
    aircraft pool. Both partner are rechecking the
    lead times required for such an activity plus the
    budget requirement (first approach Is within 5
    Associate Partner Shares). Refined sketch offer
    scheduled End of September. (End of this week).
    gt Decision required end of 2007.

SFWA ITD Flight Demonstrator Options
  • 2. Low Speed Flight Demonstrator
  • Objective Validation flight testing of High Lift
    solution to support / enable the innovative wing
    low drag concepts with a full scale demonstrator.
    Part of these concepts may possible be validated
    in large scale wind tunnel tests (ETW, DNW,...).
    The demonstrator might be more suitable in the
    second phase of the project. (This decision needs
    adjustment with SFWA airframers, meeting
    scheduled Oct.11.).
  • Option 1 Dassault Falcon
  • Provides suitable full scale dimension and
    Reynolds (Mach and Cl) Numbers representative for
    large transport aircraft. Explicit offer of
    Dassault, easy access and availability envisaged.
    Discussion ongoing. Check of lead times /
    critical paths as well as on technical details
    required before decision to be taken 2008 / 2009.
  • Option 2 Airbus A320
  • Provides suitable full scale dimension and
    Reynolds (Mach and Cl) Numbers representative for
    large transport aircraft. Test Aircraft available
    at DLR, but no detailed negotiation yet. Decision
    to be taken 2008 / 2009.

Sky and SGO Liebherr Brussels July 3rd, 2008
Systems for Green Operation the concepts
  • Pillar 1 Management of Aircraft Energy (MAE)
  • The use of all-electric equipment system
    architectures will allow a more fuel-efficient
    use of secondary power, from electrical
    generation and distribution to electrical
    aircraft systems.
  • Thermal management will address many levels,
    particularly relating to electric aircraft, from
    hot spots in large power electronics to motor
    drive system cooling, to overall aircraft
  • Pillar 2 Management of Trajectory and Mission
  • The silent and agile aircraft will generate a
    reduced noise footprint during approach, both
    through design changes in aircraft systems which
    generate a large amount of noise and by flying
    optimised trajectories.
  • Aircraft will be able to fly a green mission from
    start to finish, thanks to technologies which
    allow a pilot to avoid fuel consuming
    metrological hazards and to adapt flight path to
    known local conditions
