Objectives: 

The RADIANT Project has for ambition to create the smartest self-limiting heating system integrated on cabin panel to revolutionize the thermal comfort of Aircraft while contributing to the competitiveness of our industry.

The consortium members are HUTCHINSON, a world leader for Cabin solutions, CANOE is a R&T centre with more than 5 years of expertise in the field of cost-effective carbon fibrous materials and smart composites especially for aeronautics market and CTAG a non-profit technology centre with years of expertise in the numerical simulation for thermal efficiency active in the automotive industry.

The RADIANT PANEL project offers a disruptive innovation proposal based on three main pillars:

  • A new positive temperature coefficient (PTC) textile coating made of ex-cellulose carbon fibre and a PVDF-based polymer,
  • A heated multi-functional cabin panel,
  • A fully robotized manufacturing cell for the cabin panel assembly.

During the project, 2 type of coating will be tested. The textile coating will be assembled with their connectors on the top layer of the cabin panel by a collaborative work between a Cobot and a 6 axis robot. It is also proposed to carry out the full cabin temperature and air flow simulation using a specific software (TAITherm) coupled with the Human Thermal Module for the comfort prediction. Functional test and certification test will be validated the solution.

The RADIANT project has a 36 months duration and a budget of 702,516€. The consortium aims to take 10% market share of the cabin panel business, evaluated at 90 M€.
