The ATI Programme has funded an extensive portfolio of cutting-edge projects which encompass the breadth of the UK. Project partners include SMEs, large companies, research centres and academia, reinforcing the UK’s capabilities in aerospace R&T through fostering collaboration.
We encourage you to explore our portfolio via the link below. Powered by SharpCloud, the interactive portfolio can be queried to deliver a tailored view, depending on what you want to explore.
The ATI has mapped the UK’s aerospace technology infrastructure through a series of consultations with the wider industry and provided it free to browse.
The Fixed Trade Calculator is a web-based tool designed by the ATI which offers the UK aerospace community access to simplified trade-off study capabilities. This aircraft performance modelling tool is also used in-house to support the ATI’s funding assessment process and assess the benefits of new technologies.
The Fixed Trade Calculator enables assessment of the impact of novel technologies on representative conventional narrow and wide-bodied aircraft. It quantifies the impact of changes in weight, drag or thrust- specific fuel consumption of the aircraft into which the technologies may be installed. This provides users with the fuel burn benefits, operating cost changes, and environmental impact in terms of CO2 for new technologies – important variables to consider when assessing novel aircraft technologies.
