PMD2- LPCAD: AIRCRAFT FOR THE DIGITAL AND GREEN MOBILITY OF TOMORROW
The project is a collaboration between Bell, Beslogic, CAE, Cert Center Canada, MTLS aerostructure and Pratt & Whitney Canada. It aims to accelerate the development of technologies, digital transformation and knowledge that will enable the partners to certify and commercialize aircraft and services for sustainable, safe, efficient and socially accepted mobility. This mobility will be digital and green, for the transportation of goods and passengers.
The project includes two development areas in order to advance the level of maturity of technologies that an aircraft of the future could benefit:
1. Develop and demonstrate technologies related to the improvement and electrification of propulsion systems. These systems will be hybrid or fully electric. This component will aim at neutrality or decarbonization of aviation systems.
2. Valorize data and ensure the efficiency and reliability of vehicles and services for tomorrow's mobility through digitization, whether for the design of new products, to support operations or for training.
