2023 marks the end of the COMPINNOV TP2 project. Three years of research and development into high-performance thermoplastic composite semi-finished products, giving us a better understanding of the links between prepregs materials and manufacturing processes. Context The IRT Saint Exupéry COMPINNOV TP2 project is part of the French aerospace industry, for aerostructure applications. Most of[…]
In keeping with our research and innovation efforts within the field metal additive manufacturing technologies, the IRT Saint Exupéry has upgraded its platforms and services by equipping its Hot Isostatic Pressing (HIP) machine with a gas analyzer.
In the scope of the MAMA research project, IRT Saint Exupéry and RECAERO companies respectively located in Toulouse and Pamiers (France) tackled such challenges through the manufacturing of a bracket for the Airbus’s “Beluga” super-transporter (A300-600ST).
This October 2022, the CMC en Service project ended after four years of research and development around a test bench (the flame bench) allowing advances in composite materials with ceramic matrix testing.
On April 21st, 2022, IRT Saint Exupéry held a press conference on the MAMA project (Metallic Advanced Materials for Aeronautics). During this occasion, IRT Saint Exupéry and the members of the project had the occasion to share and discuss about the technological and scientific advances of a project that will contribute to the reinforcement and[…]
Since 2016, the IRT Saint Exupéry has been working in close collaboration with 15 industrial members and 4 academic members on establishing links between mechanical performance, microstructures, and parameters of metal additive manufacturing processes, with a view to their wider industrial use in the aeronautics and space sectors. The research work carried out within the[…]
After a year and a half, discussions between the 21 partners have led to the definition of use cases with their associated services, targeted performances and the necessary infrastructure. The 5GMED project team continues to work on the development of the infrastructure and components that will allow to test the defined services on the corridor.[…]
After 3 years of research and tests, the scientific team of the IRT Saint Exupéry and the members of the METEOR project (coMpEtitive ThErmOplastic pRepreg) have completed a project that plays a very important role in the optimization of prepregs based on high-performance thermoplastics carbon fibers and resin. THE PROJECT METEOR’s mission was to develop[…]
After a year and a half of activities, the SiCRET (SiC (MOSFET) Reliability Evaluation for Transport) project Team continues its studies on the reliability of Silicon Carbide power electronic devices. At the heart of the electric mobility transition, this project aims to enable the deployment of “dependable” MOSFET SiC technology in the transportation sector. THE[…]
Congratulations to the CIAR project for two space premieres:– Remotely updating, from a ground station, an artificial neural network embedded on a satellite.– Running this neural network on a FPGA (Field-Programmable Gate Array) in orbit. The CIAR project (Chaîne Image Autonome et Réactive / / Responsive and Autonomous Imaging Chain) is studying technologies to deploy[…]
