Smart high-lift technologies



Finite_Element_Berechnung

Lower environmental impact and a higher efficiency are primary demands for the next generation aircraft. Especially drag reduction for higher fuel-efficiency and the reduction of noise of arriving and departing air traffic in the vicinity of airports become more important. Innovative slot less high-lift systems could be the key to meet the demands and technical challenges:

  • Significant noise reduction by slot less design
  • Smooth contour as enabler for laminar flow
  • Optimized lightweight compatible composite design
  • Energy-saving actuators by more electrically operated actuators
  • Reduced complexity by robust, integral design
