CTA enters strongly in the European R+T programs of the 7th Framework Program

03.12.2007
CTA - Aeronautical Technologies Centre will take part in two CENIT projects (“National Strategic Partnerships of Technical Investigation” inside the Spanish National R+T program), as well as in four European projects at the 1st Call of 7th Framework Program, with a global budget around 6 million euros.

CTA has accompanied the Basque aerospace companies, in the CENIT project proposals, two of which have been approved in the first call of year 2007, which have been the only two projects finally accepted within the aeronautical sector in this call for proposals.

ATLANTIDA Project, acronym of "Application of Leader Technologies to Unmanned Airships for the Investigation and Development in ATM", is led by Boeing Research and Technology Europe and has the objective of the application of leader technologies in unmanned aerial vehicles for the investigation and development of a new generation Air Traffic Management system. In this initiative, AERNNOVA and CTA count on a sensitive participation centred in the UAV. The participation of CTA has a total budget of 500 000 euros.

CTA also participates in OPENAER project, related to "New configurations of airplane and engine for the future air traffic system", led by ITP, with the objective to develop key technologies to be able in the future to carry out the design of several engine modules, within the new architectures that provide solutions for maximum efficiency and minimize acoustic emissions. The budget of the Basque centre in this project is 2.2 million euros.

On the other hand, the first call of the 7th Framework Program has allowed CTA to enter strongly the European R+T programs, in which it will participate with a budget higher than 2.5 million euros with a return rate of 1.9 million euros. The Basque technological centre participates, this way, in four of the 30 approved aeronautical projects in this call where the 27 UE member countries plus other adhered countries like: Israel, Switzerland, the United States, Canada or Russia have participated

In this call, CTA participated in a total of five project proposals, four of which have been finally approved, which implies a very high success index. These projects are DREAM, belonging to level 2 (projects with budget between 8 and 60 million Euros), with ITP, in which the centre will make the validation tests of new turbine configurations; and the level 1 projects (with budget inferior to eight million Euros) FUTURE, AISHA II and FANTOM II, focused to "advanced designs in turbomachinery blades ", "nondestructive monitorization for the health monitoring of airship structural components " and "techniques for the control of structural defects", respectively.

The history of CTA´s participation in European projects shows the growth from the third call of the 5th FP, in which it reached a budget of 415,000 euros; the three calls of the 6th FP, with a budget of 2.7 million of euros, and the first call of the 7thFP, in which the numbers obtained in the previous calls have been practically reached and the return rates have been elevated significantly.

Im Focus: Electron highway inside crystal

Physicists of the University of Würzburg have made an astonishing discovery in a specific type of topological insulators. The effect is due to the structure of the materials used. The researchers have now published their work in the journal Science.

Topological insulators are currently the hot topic in physics according to the newspaper Neue Zürcher Zeitung. Only a few weeks ago, their importance was...

Im Focus: Significantly more productivity in USP lasers

In recent years, lasers with ultrashort pulses (USP) down to the femtosecond range have become established on an industrial scale. They could advance some applications with the much-lauded “cold ablation” – if that meant they would then achieve more throughput. A new generation of process engineering that will address this issue in particular will be discussed at the “4th UKP Workshop – Ultrafast Laser Technology” in April 2017.

Even back in the 1990s, scientists were comparing materials processing with nanosecond, picosecond and femtosesecond pulses. The result was surprising:...

Im Focus: Novel silicon etching technique crafts 3-D gradient refractive index micro-optics

A multi-institutional research collaboration has created a novel approach for fabricating three-dimensional micro-optics through the shape-defined formation of porous silicon (PSi), with broad impacts in integrated optoelectronics, imaging, and photovoltaics.

Working with colleagues at Stanford and The Dow Chemical Company, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign fabricated 3-D birefringent...

Im Focus: Quantum Particles Form Droplets

In experiments with magnetic atoms conducted at extremely low temperatures, scientists have demonstrated a unique phase of matter: The atoms form a new type of quantum liquid or quantum droplet state. These so called quantum droplets may preserve their form in absence of external confinement because of quantum effects. The joint team of experimental physicists from Innsbruck and theoretical physicists from Hannover report on their findings in the journal Physical Review X.

“Our Quantum droplets are in the gas phase but they still drop like a rock,” explains experimental physicist Francesca Ferlaino when talking about the...
