Design, Manufacturing and Qualification up to TRL5 of Innovative Electro-Mechanical BRAKE actuation System for SAT Application
The E-BRAKE project is aimed at developing, manufacturing, testing, and qualifying an Innovative Electro-Mechanical Braking actuation System for SAT Application. Performing at the same time studies on electromechanical actuator, command logic including diagnostic and prognostic capabilities and system integration and validation of novel electro-mechanical brake actuation system into a relevant landing gear system.
The first step will consist in a specification review, a preliminary system design activity and a technological innovation assessment, with the final aim to integrate and harmonize the concept to be developed and the effective proposed innovations. Health monitoring and prognostic algorithm as well as innovative antiskid algorithms modelling, simulation and performance analysis will be carried out to develop a new worldwide state of art electro-mechanical brake actuation system for small aircraft application. The electro actuated brake system (ebrake) will be a further development of already flying solutions, designed, produced, certified by an E-BRAKE partner according to Airworthiness Requirements.
System design outcomes will be used to drive the following detail design phase. The E-BRAKE consortium will proceed with all the design and analysis activities, minimizing all the system weight, improving safety, power consumption, affordability and using technological and manufacturing efficiency criteria to fully compliant with the approval plan.
An effective configuration & weight management will assure the fulfilment of all functional and mass budget requirements. Software validation, production, assembly and integration drawings, as well as bills of materials and suitable interface control documents will be integral part of the output provided by the design work package.
The E-BRAKE project will deliver the prototype(s) fully compliant with the topic requirements. The novel equipment (ebrake) will also be integrated in a reference SAT L/G.
