The overall objective of the ALCAS project is to maintain and enhance the competitive position of the European Aerospace
industry, in the face of significant challenges from strong global competition. The specific objective is to contribute to reducing the operating costs of relevant European aerospace products by 15%, through the cost effective full application of carbon fibre composites to aircraft primary structure, taking into account systems integration. The target product range is from business jets to large civil airliners.

 

Airliner Wing
20% weight saving in the wing structure, with zero increase in recurring cost against the reference state-of-the-art metallic wing.

Airliner Fuselage
20% weight saving of the fuselage structure, with zero increase in recurring cost, when integrating all current requirements for a composite fuselage, against the reference state-of-the-art metallic fuselage

Business Jet Fuselage
30% reduction in recurring costs of the overall fuselage metallic structure and a 10% weight saving against the reference state-of-the-art metallic fuselage

Business Jet Wing
20% reduction in recurring costs of the overall wing box structure, with a 10% weight saving against the reference state-of-the-art metallic wing
