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.

A research team led by physicists at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) has developed molecular nanoswitches that can be toggled between two structurally different states using an applied voltage. They can serve as the basis for a pioneering class of devices that could replace silicon-based components with organic molecules.
The development of new electronic technologies drives the incessant reduction of functional component sizes. In the context of an international collaborative...
At the LASYS 2018, from June 5th to 7th, the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) will be showcasing processes for the laser material processing of tomorrow in hall 4 at stand 4E75. With blown bomb shells the LZH will present first results of a research project on civil security.
At this year's LASYS, the LZH will exhibit light-based processes such as cutting, welding, ablation and structuring as well as additive manufacturing for...
There are videos on the internet that can make one marvel at technology. For example, a smartphone is casually bent around the arm or a thin-film display is rolled in all directions and with almost every diameter. From the user's point of view, this looks fantastic. From a professional point of view, however, the question arises: Is that already possible?
At Display Week 2018, scientists from the Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Polymer Research IAP will be demonstrating today’s technological possibilities and...
