Wing Concept Integration (CI)

Concept Integration (CI) is an ATI-approved project and key within Airbus’ Wing of the Future Programme focusing on the industrialisation of technologies, development of disruptive solutions for future products in the timeframe 2025+ and will be responsible for integration activities across the suite of Wing of the Future technologies. In conjunction with other projects within the Wing of the Future collaborative framework, CI will be organised in three key phases, each of two years duration
CI includes a number of key integration streams for Airbus including leading the collaboration with target Programmes in order to ensure short term exploitation (EIS in 5-10 years) of technologies bringing ‘quick-win’ weight and cost benefits, and also ensuring suites of integrated technologies are optimised and matched to the particular requirements of the aircraft application. The project is supported by a selection of strategic and associate partners from respected research and industrial fields.
