Funding supports further steps towards decarbonising aviation New hydrogen and electric fuelling equipment will reduce emissions and advance research Expanded sensor network to create airport ‘digital twin’ Cranfield University has been awarded £3.1 million to advance its sustainable aviation research, both into developing low-carbon aircraft, and decarbonising airport logistics. The funding from Research England […]
Cranfield University has been an enabling partner in the Unmanned Aircraft Systems Authentication System (UASAS) project, which is one of over 40 projects in the UK Research and Innovation (UKRI) Future Flight Challenge programme (FFC). UASAS is led by ANGOKA, along with partners Cranfield University and Connected Places Catapult. This project aims to strengthen the […]
A project managed by Cranfield University to advance electric aviation has achieved a significant milestone, with what is thought to be the first ever flight by a British designed and built, all-electric conventional aeroplane. The eKub is a British designed and built all-electric microlight aeroplane and has been developed by a consortium of Cranfield University, […]
The UK-ARC community welcomes the excellent achievements of the ATI FlyZero project. Mobilising a large industry and academic team to rapidly examine many aspects of zero-carbon aviation and how to achieve that within a decade was a huge undertaking. UK-ARC universities undertook or contributed to sixteen reports that form part of the body of research […]
The ATI received confirmation on 29th March that they have been allocated Government funding totalling £685m over the next three years which allows resumption of their programme. This is excellent news for the academic community as well as for industry. UK-ARC universities are frequent collaborators in industry projects proposed to the ATI so this announcement […]
A new report published by Cranfield University and Inmarsat highlights the critical role that digital connectivity will play in accelerating aviation’s long-term recovery. The report highlights a number of transformative changes ahead for the aviation industry and examines how airlines can take advantage of the enormous opportunities created as a result. To read further access […]
