Practical application project for aircraft advance systems

Project overview

Project period: FY2015 to FY2023, FY2021 budget: JPY 1.9 billion

The aircraft industry is a typical example of an R&D-intensive industry in which state-of-the-art technology is applied. It is also an extremely wide-ranging and comprehensive industry, with strict quality controls needed to ensure the highest possible levels of safety and reliability. In addition, passenger demand is increasing greatly around the world, and it is assumed that demand will approximately double in the next 20 years.

At the same time, the development of next-generation aircraft scheduled to be introduced in the mid-2020s is expected to start in the 2020s, but next-generation aircraft will be subject to even higher safety, environmental, and economic-efficiency standards. Therefore, it is necessary to develop advanced aircraft systems to respond to the above needs and build systems that enable the introduction of Japanese technology to next-generation aircraft as soon as possible.

The goals of this research and development are to produce prototype models of advanced aircraft systems and demonstrate that these new systems are superior to conventional systems in terms of performance and functionality on the ground or in the air.
