  • On the 1st week of May 2022, the SAFELAND team was gathered in the city of Braunschweig, Germany to conduct the Real Time Simulation (RTS). The scope of the RTS was to evaluate the SAFELAND concept of operations aimed at ensuring a safe landing of a Single Piloted Aircraft in the event of on-board Pilot Incapacitation. This fruitful gathering took place at DLR´s Institute of Flight Guidance and involved experienced pilots from SWISS International Airlines, Air Traffic Controllers from LFV as participants, as well as operational and Human Factors experts from DLR and Deep Blue. During the RTS, a Controller Working Position (CWP), a Cockpit, and a Remote Cockpit simulator specifically adapted for the SAFELAND exercise were exploited. The simulations ran for 5 days, each of them involving one ATCO and one pilot that experienced two different scenarios: 

    • Scenario 1: short flight over Europe, on-board Pilot Incapacitation during the approach phase, after entering the Terminal Maneuvering Area (TMA, is designated area of controlled airspace surrounding a major airport where there is a high volume of traffic).
    • Scenario 2: short flight over Europe, on-board Pilot Incapacitation during the en-route phase (The en-route phase is defined as that segment of flight from the termination point of a departure procedure to the origination point of an arrival procedure.)

    In both scenarios, the participants in their different roles (i.e., ground station pilot operating from a ground station, and ATCO) needed to communicate and coordinate with each other, and with other supporting figures (e.g., NOC) allowing the ground station pilot to ultimately manage the flight until a safe landing. The experimental protocol included the following phases: 

    • Initial briefing: The participants were introduced to the SAFELAND Concept and to the experimental session.
    • Training: The participants were familiarized with the simulation platforms.
    • Simulation: The participants experienced the two SAFELAND scenarios
    • Evaluation: After each scenario, a post-run questionnaire was circulated, to collect participants’ feedback on the performed activity with a special focus on operational and HF aspects (e.g., communication, workload, situational awareness).

    Furthermore, a post-run debriefing was also performed to depict first impressions and/or report any questions arose.  At the end of the simulation exercise, an additional questionnaire was shared, aimed at collecting more general feedback on e.g., the concept, the procedures and safety aspects. All these topics were further discussed and analysed during the final Debriefing. In this last phase, participants were also invited to share any thoughts and opinions with the researchers, raise new topics of discussion, and clarify possible ambiguities about the simulation and the concept experienced. 

    Currently, Consortium partners are putting together the data collected during the RTS to conclude on the evaluation of the SAFELAND concept. The RTS results will be thoroughly outlined in an upcoming project’s deliverable.  For more information and regular updates of the DOMMINIO project visit the SAFELAND official website and SAFELAND social media pages: LinkedIn | Twitter

  • PERIOD (PERASPERA In Orbit Demonstration) project will pioneer construction of major components such as antenna reflectors, assembly of spacecraft components and satellite payload replacements, directly in space. This is the precursor to future manufacturing of large structures in orbit. Producing directly on orbit will revolutionize the way space systems are designed, built and operated. In this context, the future of spaceflight will rely more and more on robotic systems and autonomy. These systems will enable the next generation of spacecraft’s infrastructure and services in orbit.

    The project is about to enter the last quarter of its Phase A/B1 lifetime. The team is working intensively on finalizing the ambitious demonstration concept. The accommodation scenario of the “orbital factory” on the Bartolomeo platform of the International Space Station (ISS) is currently fine-tuned. The maturation of the key ISMA technologies of the SRC building blocks is progressing, getting closer to the target of achieving TRL5. In this context, an Airbus Robotic In Space Manufacturing Assembly Testbed (RISMAT) is under preparation for integrating, testing and evaluating in demonstrations the developed technologies in relevant operational scenarios. In parallel, the Standard Interconnects (Sis) benchmark has been completed and the final evaluation is under preparation.

    Having a permanent objective for transparency and for raising the awareness of the stakeholders on PERIOD activities, the team aims at targeted dissemination and communication activities. Amongst the others, a number of videos are currently under preparation, highlighting the project achievements. The videos will be released at the European Operations Framework (EOF) Workshop which is planned to take place on 28-29 September 2022 at the DLR premises in Cologne.

  • The wings of large civil passenger aircrafts house the fuel tanks, and generally carry an amount of fuel comparable in weight to that of their structural components. However, violent sloshing flows appear when the fuel tanks are shaken by atmospheric turbulence or air gust. The liquid slosh inside the tank significantly damps the wing vibrations and its behavior is still not fully understood. The EU funded Horizon 2020 SLOWD (SLOshing Wing Dynamics) project aims to explore in-depth the effect of sloshing through the development of experimental, numerical, and analytical methods and eventually to take advantage of the dissipative effect of sloshing to reduce loads from gusts and turbulence.

    On the 16th and 17th of March 2022, the SLOWD team of researchers conducted its M30 Technical Progress Meeting. The meeting took place both online, and onsite in Madrid, Spain, providing an exceptional opportunity for the consortium partners to meet each other for the first time in two years in person, discuss the scientific and technical achievements to date, and agree on the next steps that will be followed.

    May is almost over and preparations are underway by the SLOWD team of experts for a “hot” summer, full of major events and new scientific publications. SLOWD dedicated sessions will be organized in the frame of the 16th International SPHERIC Workshop and of the International Forum on Aeroelasticity and Structural Dynamics (IFASD) 2022 while presentations will be given among others in the 9th International Conference on Hydroelasticity in Marine Technology (HYEL22).

    To date SLOWD has successfully published several scientific articles both in journals and conference proceedings, presenting the project’s technical advances. These scientific articles are available in Open Access in the SLOWD ZENODO Community. Further to this, a list of exciting videos, bringing us some of the most interesting results that SLOWD is investigating up to now, is available on the project’s YouTube channel.

  • Probes and satellites in space are often controlled electrically with an ion drive. However, the noble gas xenon used for this purpose is pricey, in short supply and must be carried in pressurized tanks, which poses a safety risk, especially during rocket launches. Iodine could be an attractive alternative as it is solid, easy to transport, cost efficient and easily ionizable. Though, there is still a lack of data on how iodine behaves with the materials used in the propulsion system and how the fuel can be fed in efficiently. The EU-funded iFACT (iodine Fed Advanced Cusp field Thruster) project has been addressing this problem by developing an iodine-based ion propulsion system, establishing an efficient European ground test infrastructure, further advancing the “Advanced Cusp Field Thruster” (ACFT) technology, and generating a detailed iodine - material compatibility library.

    iFACT will reach the end of its two and a half years lifetime by the end of June and the team of experts is committed to deliver significant achievements. Important test trials such as the 3000h tests of continuous firing with iodine as propellant have been successfully completed demonstrating that long term firing and the simulated high total impulse EP maneuvers are feasible through the iFACT promising propellant candidate. In particular, the tailored propellant feeding has operated efficiently without coping with undesired challenges like clogging or material incompatibilities. The iFACT team of experts has also decommissioned test articles, including thrust measurements and health checks.
