HIT09 IS PARTNER IN FLAPSENSE, EU RESEARCH PROJECT IN THE FRAMEWORK OF CLEAN SKY 2
HIT09 is partner in FLAPSENSE, EU funded research project in the framework of Clean Sky 2 (https://www.cleansky.eu/).
The objective of the research project, started on 1st March 2018, and carried out in collaboration with DLR and NLR, is to design and manufacture a contactless measurement system for real time monitoring of proprotor flapping angle to be applied into the Next Generation Civil TiltRotor. The system will be based on an highly accurate optical sensing method providing the actual flap motion of the rotor blade to the avionic system. Besides several laboratory testing at DLR and a test on a rotary test bench at NLR, finally the sensor will be ground and flight tested on the NextGenCTR Demonstrator.
