Case Studies

ATI project: ADVANCE

The ATI has funded a number of research projects aimed at the Rolls-Royce Advance 3 demonstrator. This presents a high-efficiency, high-temperature core that is intended to form a key element of future engines including the UltraFan®.

ATI project: Future of Aircraft Factory

A consortium of thirteen partners, led by Airbus, have come together to focus on strengthening UK manufacturing and assembly productivity for series production and next-generation manufacturing systems.

ATI Project: VIEWS

Led by GKN Aerospace, a consortium of supply chain companies came together to focus on strengthening UK manufacture and assembly capabilities for current and future disruptive aircraft technologies.

ATI project: LOCATE

This Hybrid Air Vehicles project focused on lowering the developmental risks in key technology areas such as novel aircraft aerodynamics, carbon composite structures, avionics monitoring systems and improving rate production.

ATI project: Future Flight Deck Technology

This project, led by GE Aviation, set out to develop advanced capabilities for flight deck technologies and improve the operations of the aircraft by providing the pilot with a fuller picture of the aircraft situation.

ATI project: WILETE

This project, led by Spirit AeroSystems in Prestwick, focuses on the development of composite leading edge components and assembly technologies, supporting high-volume composite manufacture, assembly and equipping.

ATI Programme case study: MEGCAP

Led by Safran Electrical & Power, this project will re-invent the thermal management of the interior of aircraft starter-generator electrical machines. Project outputs will be equipment and products with higher efficiency, lower self-heating – leading to cooler and smaller equipment. The project will also advance the control electronics.

ATI Programme case study: Meggitt M4

The M4 project, led by Meggitt, uses dynamic scheduling, simulations and data analytics to predict capacity requirements and performance, visibility and traceability of components. Shop floor operators are supported through fully-adaptable intelligent work benches, autonomous intelligent vehicles to provide “smart box” sub-assemblies and component parts, digital work instructions and smart tools to minimise error, control traceability and minimise unnecessary waste during the production processes.
