Key assets in the project:
ACITURRI main role is acting as industrial end user, contributing within one of the demo-cases and monitoring the evolution of the project in order to guide the technology maturation to focus in areas in which more impact is produced.
One of the demo-cases to be explored under DOMMINIO (leading edge aircraft component) has been selected considering ACITURRI interests of future potential application of the project’s outcomes. For this demo-case, ACITURRI will design a representative coupon in which DOMMINIO technologies would be implemented in other work packages, in particular:
- Multidisciplinary Optimization Techniques in the design phase
- Innovative manufacturing processes considering ATL + additive manufacturing (3D printing)
- Integrated functionalities for anti-ice and structural health monitoring Solutions
- Improved in-process NDI capabilities
Also, ACITURRI has an important role in the assessment of the project results and collaborate with partners in dissemination, communication and exploitation activities, contributing with the industrial point of view over the potential roadmap ahead at the end of the project: confirming expectations and/or identifying new applications.
