CAPSTONE Project 2023: Prepare Manufacture-Ready Transport and Storage Cart

The team employed analytical and numerical methodologies to assess the design against the customer-defined requirements, including static and fatigue studies of the structure and its associated components.  The team also provided procurement specifications for the off-the-shelf components, as well as detailed manufacturing specifications for those parts requiring manufacturing.

IATA Net Zero Technology Roadmap: Grist for the Mill, Part-1

The overall impact of energy demand for aviation services is that energy requirements will outpace the in-flight features that are under development or are yet to be introduced. The technological developments of in-flight energy reductions are “grist for the mill,” as later improvements will call upon the lessons learned and configurations achieved to develop further novel configurations.

A Sustainable Aviation Fuel Project Making Progress in Manitoba

Portage la Prairie finds itself in a nexus of agricultural opportunities. The aerospace industry is trying hard to manage carbon emissions with a growing passenger demand. Part of that industry’s mitigation efforts are focused on better gas turbine engines or improved aircraft designs. These improvements, however, only reduce carbon emissions to a limited extent. A more holistic and long-term view needs to be taken.

Variable Camber with New Control Surfaces

Variable Camber with New Control Surfaces

Variable-camber control of the wing for drag reduction throughout the flight mission using existing control surfaces can provide the ability to realize modest operational savings. Variable camber is considered ideal for future aircraft because the concept calls for a complete redesign of the wing from largely a static piece to an ever-adjusting aircraft component.
