LEONARDO AND THE POLITECNICO DI MILANO COLLABORATE ON THE HELICOPTER OF THE FUTURE: AGREEMENT FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF SUSTAINABLE INNOVATIVE TECHNOLOGIES

Posted by jhadmin

Helicopters will be an increasingly comfortable means of transport; by reducing noise and vibration inside the helicopter, pilot workload can be reduced, search and rescue tasks are easier and the quality of medical treatment in air ambulances is improved. It is the reason Leonardo and the Politecnico di Milano (PoliMi) are developing new technologies for helicopters as part of their expanding collaboration, launched in 2016 with the signing of Innovation Hub, a multi-year framework agreement. The studies will also focus on the development of innovative technologies that can be used in new mechanical components utilising new lighter materials, which will bring advantages in terms of production costs and ease of installation. A further research project on predictive helicopter maintenance based on its health status will be launched by 2018.
