Smart Inceptor BACKup electronics
SIBACK stands for "Smart Inceptor BACKup electronics"
The aim of the project is to develop a backup electronic unit (Analogue or Digital) to provide Active Inceptor with a configurable feel force. The goal is to drive electrical motor with simplified laws compared to nominal behaviour.
This development is necessary because the Smart Active Inceptor will go to Flight Tests on NGCTR IADP in order to reach TRL 6 and will need a backup Inceptor Control Unit (BICU), defined by a dissimilar electronic architecture, to support Safety of Flight requirements.
