And now there are three! The A319neo performs its first flight

Press release: HEADLINE NEWS


The third member of Airbus’ best-selling A320neo Family – the A319neo – has gone airborne, performing its maiden flight today. After taking off from Hamburg-Finkenwerder Airport in Germany (which is one of four final assembly line sites worldwide for the single-aisle jetliner family), the aircraft touched down five hours later at Airbus’ Toulouse, France headquarters location.

This shortest-fuselage member of the A320neo product line is equipped with CFM International LEAP-1A engines – one of the two powerplants available on the NEO jetliners.

Once in airline service, the A319neo will provide the same remarkable fuel efficiency as the longer-fuselage A320neo and A321neo versions, enabling airlines to choose between three aircraft sizes accommodating from 100 to 240 seats – depending on the specific passenger cabin layout. The choice allows carriers to match capacity with demand, covering the entire single-aisle jetliner segment from low- and high-density domestic operations to longer-range routes.

The A319neo’s flight campaign will focus primarily on aircraft handling qualities, autopilot, performance and systems – building on the required engine tests that already have been performed with the A320neo and A321neo versions.




Third member of successful A320neo Family starts flight test campaignPRESS RELEASE


The first Airbus A319neo performed its maiden flight today, The smallest member of the A320neo Family, powered by CFM International LEAP-1A engines took off from Hamburg and landed in Toulouse after a 5 hour flight.

It was piloted by Experimental test pilots Michel Gagneux and Eckard Hausser. They were assisted in the cockpit by Test-Flight Engineer Jean Michel Pin, while two flight test engineers Sylvie Loisel-Labaste and David O’nions directed the flight from the aircraft’s Test Engineer station.

This flight was the occasion for the crew to assess the general handling of the aircraft and to check the main systems. The A319neo, registered as D-AVWA, will be based in Toulouse in order to complete its flight test programme.

The A320neo Family is the world’s best-selling single aisle product line with over 5,000 orders received from over 90 customers, capturing almost 60 percent share of the market. The A320neo Family incorporates latest technologies including new generation engines and Sharklet wing tip devices, which together deliver more than 15 percent in fuel savings from day one and 20 percent by 2020.

Thanks to their widest cabin, all members of the A320neo Family offer unmatched comfort in all classes and Airbus’ 18” wide seats in economy as standard.

With one aircraft in three sizes (A319neo, A320neo & A321neo), the A320neo Family, seating from 100 to 240 passengers, seamlessly covers the entire single-aisle segment from low to high-density domestic to longer range routes.

The A319neo is the smallest member of the A320neo Family; it offers its operators superior short field performance in hot and high conditions. It can accommodate up to 160 passengers without compromise on the comfort.

Swiss Post drone to fly laboratory samples for Ticino hospitals


Press Release:



Swiss Post drone to fly laboratory samples for Ticino hospitals
Communication dated 31.03.2017

Since mid-March, Swiss Post, the Ticino EOC hospital group and drone manufacturer Matternet have been successfully conducting initial drone flights in Lugano. In the future, modern delivery drones will transport laboratory samples between two EOC hospitals. Now, the Federal Office for Civil Aviation (FOCA) has given the project the green light. The idea of a drone taking care of the exchange of laboratory samples in a city is a first in Switzerland – and also means that Swiss Post is playing a pioneering role in drone logistics worldwide.




In mid-March 2017, Swiss Post, the Ticino EOC hospital group and drone manufacturer Matternet launched a joint innovation project: they plan to use modern delivery drones to transport laboratory samples autonomously between two EOC hospitals in Lugano – the Ospedale Italiano and the Ospedale Civico (see press release dated 14 March). The samples are currently transported by road. The use of drones will make transport faster and more efficient in order to further enhance the provision of care to patients.
First test flights completed successfully

Since mid-March, there have been around 70 autonomous test flights between the two hospital locations. The Federal Office for Civil Aviation (FOCA) has been involved in the project from the outset: it has inspected the drone and its safety components, defined the legal conditions for flying it, and now granted Swiss Post and Matternet approval for the flights. The partners will carry out further test flights until 4 April, after which an initial evaluation will take place. Further testing with flights is planned over a one-month period in summer 2017.
Regular drone flights expected from 2018

As soon as the drone meets all of the strict requirements regarding safety, practicality and reliability, the regular use of drones between the two hospitals will become an everyday occurrence. This is expected to be achieved by 2018. From then on, trained hospital staff will be able to load the drone independently with a safety box (in which the lab samples are packaged) and launch the drone with a smartphone application. The drone will then fly autonomously along the predefined route to its destination, where the box will be received by another member of staff.
Swiss Post uses state-of-the-art delivery drones

The logistics drone in use in Lugano is equipped with the very latest technology. It is a quadrocopter from the American manufacturer Matternet. The drone is compact at 80 cm in diameter (without rotor blades), specializes in the transport of light goods weighing up to two kilograms, has a maximum range of 20 kilometres and flies at an average speed of 10 metres per second (36 kilometres per hour). For safety reasons, duplicates of both the autopilot and other important sensors (e.g. altimeter, accelerometer, gyrometer) are always installed. In the event of the failure of all electronics, a parachute would be released automatically. A landing pad that transmits an infrared signal is used at the take-off and landing points. During its approach, the drone can detect this signal to ensure a pinpoint landing.


Swiss Post plays pioneering role in drone logistics
Swiss Post is one of the first companies in the world to test autonomous drone logistics for a commercial application. With this step, Swiss Post is once again demonstrating its pioneering role in drone logistics and its innovative strength. For Swiss Post, the use of drones in logistics over the last mile is of particular interest. The focus is on the transport of special items or the delivery of supplies to places cut off from the outside world after a storm. In the future, drones will complement traditional parcel delivery sensibly, but they will not replace it. In addition to drones, Swiss Post is also testing other autonomous systems, such as delivery robots and intelligent shuttles.

About the EOC hospital group
The EOC hospital group is the largest healthcare provider in the Canton of Ticino, with a market share of around 70 percent. EOC comprises the canton’s public hospitals and operates in Lugano, Bellinzona, Locarno, Mendrisio, Novaggio, Acquarossa and Faido for acute and outpatient medical care as well as rehabilitation.

Lawrence Livermore reinventing metal 3D printing with new direct writing process



Press release




Metal 3D printing has enormous potential to revolutionize modern manufacturing. However, the most popular metal printing processes, which use lasers to fuse together fine metal powder, have their limitations. Parts produced using selective laser melting (SLM) and other powder-based metal techniques often end up with gaps or defects caused by a variety of factors.




To overcome the drawbacks of SLM, Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory researchers, along with collaborators at Worchester Polytechnic Institute(link is external), are taking a wholly new approach to metal 3D printing with a process they call direct metal writing, in which semisolid metal is directly extruded from a nozzle. The metal is engineered to be a shear thinning material, which means it acts like a solid when standing still, but flows like a liquid when a force is applied. The results of the ongoing three-year study were published in February in Applied Physics Letters(link is external).

"We're in new territory," said lead author Wen Chen, an LLNL materials scientist. "We've advanced a new metal additive manufacturing technique that people aren't aware of yet. I think a lot of people will be interested in continuing this work and expanding it into other alloys."

Instead of starting with metal powder, the direct metal writing technique uses an ingot that is heated until it reaches a semi-solid state -- solid metal particles are surrounded by a liquid metal, resulting in a paste-like behavior, then it's forced through a nozzle. The material is shear thinning because, when it's at rest, the solid metal particles clump up and cause the structure to be solid. As soon at the material moves, or is in shear, the solid particles break up and the system acts like the liquid matrix. It hardens as it cools, so there's less incorporated oxide and less residual stress in the part, the researchers explained.



Unlike other metal 3D printing techniques that use lasers to fuse metal powder, the direct metal writing approach incorporates an ingot that is heated until it reaches a semi-solid state before it's forced through a nozzle. As it cools, the material hardens to form a 3D metal structure.

While encouraged by their success in printing test pieces, the researchers cautioned the method is still in its early stages and will need more work to achieve higher resolution parts with more industry-friendly metals, such as aluminum and titanium. In the paper, the team produced parts using a bismuth-tin mixture, which has a low melting point of less than 300 degrees Celsius. The process took numerous iterations to get right, as researchers ran into the problem of dendrites -- fingers of solid metal that would get stuck in the nozzle.

"The main issue was getting very tight control over the flow," said LLNL engineer Andy Pascall. "You need precise control of the temperature. How you stir it, how fast you stir it, all makes a difference. If you can get the flow properties right, then you really have something. What we've done is really understand the way the material is flowing through the nozzle. Now we've gotten such good control that we can print self-supporting structures. That's never been done before."

The researchers said the latest study will provide accurate operating conditions for printing with metal directly from a nozzle. They're already moving onto aluminum alloys, a metal that would be more attractive to industries such as aerospace and transportation, but will present challenges because of its higher melting point.

"Being able to print parts out of metal in this way is potentially important," said staff scientist Luke Thornley, who worked on engineering the material. "So much of the work that goes into validation and analyzing for defects would be eliminated. We can use less material to make parts, meaning lighter parts, which would be big for aerospace."

The project is funded by the Laboratory Directed Research & Development program. Other LLNL researchers included in the study were Hannah Coe, Sam Tonneslan, John Vericella (formerlly of LLNL), Cheng Zhu, Eric Duoss, Ryan Hunt, Josh Kuntz and Chris Spadaccini.

Hitchhiking Earth bacteria could evolve to live on Mars [feedly]

Finding microbes on Mars would be the discovery of the century, and the last thing any self-respecting space agency would want to do after such an announcement is to sheepishly backtrack and say "sorry, it was from Earth all along." To make sure that any organisms dug up on the Red Planet are natives and not stowaways, NASA has launched bacteria into Earth's stratosphere aboard a balloon, to test how well they might survive under Mars-like conditions.

El sector aeroespacial andaluz intensifica su relación Con las principales compañías norteamericanas

Andalucía, 1 de abril de 2017                                                        

 

  • La misión comercial iniciada por el consejero de Economía en Canadá y que continuó en EE.UU. desarrolló más de 300 reuniones con medio centenar de compañías

 

            La misión comercial directa de 19 compañías del sector aeroespacial andaluz a Norteamérica, iniciada en Canadá por el consejero de Economía y Conocimiento, Antonio Ramírez de Arellano, y que continuó en Estados Unidos, ha supuesto un importante incremento en las relaciones de éstas con los dos grandes fabricantes de la región, Boeing y Bombardier, y con otros grandes contratistas, desarrollándose entre los días 23 y 29 de marzo más de 300 reuniones de negocio con responsables de medio centenar de compañías.

 

            El consejero encabezó la misión comercial en su primera etapa, la de Canadá, en la que conocieron las instalaciones de los dos principales fabricantes del país, Bombardier y Pratt&Whittney, a los que invitó a participar en la misión inversa que Extenda está organizando para el próximo mes de mayo en Andalucía. Una acción para la que Boeing, el primer fabricante de aviones del mundo, ya ha confirmado su presencia, además de mostrar interés por participar en la edición de 2018 de ADM Sevilla, el mayor evento de negocios del sector en el sur de Europa, que organiza la Consejería de Economía y Conocimiento, a través de Extenda.

 

            Durante la agenda canadiense, desarrollada en Quebec, el consejero realizó diversas presentaciones de Andalucía como destino de atracción de inversión extranjera, especialmente en el ámbito aeroespacial, en el que la comunidad se sitúa como tercer polo industrial de Europa, tras Toulouse y Hamburgo. "Tenemos un sector potente, una industria muy competitiva, en vanguardia tecnológica y volcada de lleno en la I+D, que es capaz de atender la demanda de los principales fabricantes mundiales", señaló Arellano.

 

            Norteamérica es la región del mundo en la que más crecieron las exportaciones andaluzas en 2016, un 17%, situándose las ventas ya en 1.580 millones de euros. Andalucía es la primera comunidad exportadora a Canadá, con 287 millones de euros, una cifra que duplica a la del año anterior.

 

            Las ventas del sector aeronáutico a Canadá, aunque se han multiplicado por cinco en los últimos cinco años, son aún incipientes, con sólo 2,8 millones de euros, pero las posibilidades de crecimiento son muy importantes, especialmente tras la firma del tratado CETA entre la Unión Europea y Canadá, que reduce en un 99% los aranceles. También, para otros muchos sectores, como el agroalimentario, el energético, el sector marítimo-naval y la piedra natural, motivo por el que Extenda ha abierto a finales de 2016 una Oficina de Promoción de Negocios en este país, cuya sede está en Montreal.

 

            Esta visita ha servido igualmente, para que los clústeres de Andalucía, Hélice, y el de Montreal, AéroMontréal,  amplíen sus relaciones y acuerden la celebración de un próximo encuentro en París Air Show-Le Bourget, entre las empresas de una y otra parte que participen en el mes de junio en la que es la principal feria del sector que tendrá lugar este año en Europa.

 

Boeing en Estados Unidos

 

            Las relaciones comerciales de Andalucía con Estados Unidos son más sólidas, siendo el primer destino no comunitario de Andalucía y sexto mundial, con 1.285 millones exportados el año pasado, un 6,3% más que en 2015, y 2.771 empresas exportadoras, 585 de ellas, exportadoras regulares.

 

            La parte estadounidense de la misión se desarrolló en torno a Seattle (Washington), donde el mayor fabricante mundial de aviones, Boeing, y Extenda organizaron el I Encuentro de Proveedores Españoles, en el que la compañía norteamericana explicó el funcionamiento de su cadena de suministros. El encuentro incluyó una mesa redonda en la que participaron los tres Tier 1 de aeroestructuras de España, Alestis, Aernnova y Aciturri.

            Para el director de Boeing para el Sur de Europa, Antonio De Palmas, "este primer Encuentro de Proveedores Españoles es un hito que ayudará a fortalecer y desarrollar aún más nuestra relación con los proveedores españoles y nuestra presencia, de larga data, en el país". Por su parte, la consejera delegada de Extenda, Vanessa Bernad, señaló que el sentido de esta acción es "llevar a las empresas allí donde está el negocio, para que incrementen y diversifiquen su cartera internacional".

 

            Boeing es la mayor compañía aeroespacial del mundo, con 748 aviones de pasajeros entregados en 2016, 96.114 millones de dólares en facturación y 489.000 millones de dólares en cartera de pedidos, siendo también el mayor exportador de Estados Unidos. La FAL de Boeing en Everet (Seattle) es el edificio más grande del mundo y el centro neurálgico de la compañía, donde se ensamblan sus aviones de gran tamaño, como el 787 Dreamliner, 777, 767 y 747.

 

            En conjunto, hasta 34 empresas del Cluster andaluz participan en diversos proyectos de Boeing, en los 737, 747, 777 y 787, generando una facturación anual de 51,7 millones de euros.

 

            En su estancia en Seattle, la delegación comercial tuvo ocasión de conocer también el laboratorio de composites avanzados de Lamborghini, uno de los principales centros mundiales en avances de estos productos y sus aplicaciones en los sectores aeroespacial y de automoción. Igualmente, participaron de los encuentros con las empresas andaluzas, directivos de otros OEMs (grandes contratistas mundiales) y compañías como Safran, Crane Aerospace, Sandvik, Senior o Lisi Aerospace, además de altos ejecutivos de las principales divisiones de Boeing, tanto de defensa y seguridad como de aviones comerciales.

 

            La estancia en Seattle incluyó igualmente, un encuentro entre el cluster andaluz y el del Estado de Washington, para abrir nuevas vías de cooperación, y presentaciones por parte de Vanessa Bernad a responsables de la Administración estatal de Andalucía como destino de inversión extranjera

 

Cluster Hélice y empresas

            Las empresas andaluzas han acudido con representantes propios y también a través del cluster aeroespacial andaluz, Hélice, que engloba a todos los agentes del sector, desde la pymes, hasta los centros tecnológicos y universidades.

           

            En palabras de su director general, Arturo de Vicente, "esta misión comercial, sin duda, ha servido para poner en la órbita de Bombardier y Boeing las grandes capacidades de nuestras empresas que, además, han tenido la oportunidad de establecer una importante red de contactos en sendas reuniones con los clústeres AéroMontréal y

Pacific Northwest Aerospace Alliance del Estado de Washington. De hecho, tenemos planificados nuevos encuentros con el cluster canadiense y el PNAA durante el Paris Air Show-Le Bourget del próximo mes de junio, donde seguiremos desarrollando y planificando nuevas acciones conjuntas".

 

            Las 19 empresas participantes en la misión comercial organizada por Extenda son Cluster Hélice, Alestis Aerospace, Elimco Aerospace, Elimco UAS, Potez Aeronáutica Ibérica, Sofitec Composites, Inespasa, Canagrosa, Atis Ibérica, UMI Aeronáutica, Solar Mems Technologies, Airgrup, Consur y Cesa, implantadas en Sevilla; Carbures Aerospace & Defense, Mave Aeronáutica, Saes y Titania, implantadas en Cádiz; y Mades, en Málaga, a las que se unieron en Seattle Aernnova y Aciturri.

 

            Esta delegación empresarial supone una importante representación de la industria auxiliar aeroespacial de Andalucía, una industria fuerte y consolidada, con crecimiento del empleo y las ventas en 2015, tal y como arrojan las cifras: crecimiento en su facturación del 13,1%, hasta los 971 millones de euros, y del 9,8% en el empleo, con 10.430 puestos de trabajo. La organización de esta misión comercial directa por parte de Extenda estará cofinanciada en un 80% con fondos procedentes de la Unión Europea, con cargo al Programa Operativo FEDER de Andalucía 2014-2020.

 

Exportación, clave

 

En conjunto, la evolución del sector aeroespacial andaluz es expansiva y en 2015 alcanzó una facturación de 2.344 millones de euros, superando los 2.000 millones por tercer año consecutivo y triplicando la facturación en la última década, la cual ascendía a 848 millones en 2006). Asimismo, en términos de facturación y empleo, la comunidad autónoma es la segunda región aeronáutica de España,  con un 30% de la facturación y del empleo total en 2015.

 

            La andaluza es la segunda región exportadora en España en este ámbito, con ventas que alcanzaron los 1.405 millones de euros en 2016, facturados por las 148 empresas que comerciaron con terceros países.

 

            En el pasado ejercicio el número de compañías internacionalizadas aumentó un 13,5% respecto al año anterior y, además, 34 de ellas alcanzan la consideración de exportadoras regulares, por llevar cuatro años seguidos con ventas al exterior, lo que supone un 11,8% más que en 2015 y cuatro veces más que hace una década.

 

            El cluster aeroespacial andaluz está compuesto por 118 empresas, que generan 13.740 empleos directos. Además, el sector también da empleo a más de 12.000 personas de forma indirecta.
