ATSlab is participating in the University of Cambridge-led venture to build “an interactive, open-source, whole system simulator that can map pathways and accelerate the journey to climate neutral aviation”…
New Aviation, Propulsion, Knowledge and Innovation Network (NAPKIN)
Funded under Phase 2 of the Industrial Strategy Challenge’s Future Flight Challenge, NAPKIN brings together UK aviation expertise to investigate the potential of electric aircraft for UK regional flights…
Airport Capacity Consequences Leveraging Aviation Integrated Modelling (ACCLAIM)
Airport capacity expansions are among the most contentious policy decisions. Proponents for adding runway capacity point to the multiple economic benefits occurring at local, regional, and national levels….
Systems Aspects of Electric Commercial Aircraft (SAECA)
(More) electric commercial aircraft show the promise of providing multiple benefits to air transportation. Because of their reduced dependence on oil these benefits will be both economic and environmental…
Aviation Integrated Modelling (AIM)
Economic development, increasing global linkages, and continuously declining airfares have made air travel the sector of fastest growth amongst all transportation modes. Although, on average, aviation has become significantly more…
Technology Opportunities and Strategies for Climate-friendly trAnsport (TOSCA)
Intra-EU-27 transport sector-related lifecycle carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions increased from around 900 million tons in 1990 to nearly 1,200 million tons in 2010, a growth by about 30%…
Commercial Feasibility of Hybrid-Electric Aircraft
Hybrid-electric aircraft (HEA) rely on a novel propulsion architecture that allows radical changes in aircraft design. As a result, they may offer lower operating costs compared to their conventional jet engine more…
