Amulet

The AMULET project addresses the design of a control unit capable of managing the electrical energy and the voltage data acquired for the reconstruction of the wing shape (morphing), as well as the operation of the electric motors responsible for the deformation of the edge of the attack.

AMULET seeks to develop, manufacture and qualify a system for controlling leading edge actuators, thus allowing the replacement of current slats with a deformable surface, innovative technology among the main trends under development for the aircraft of the future.

This innovation has the following characteristics:

  • Acoustic emission reduction
  • General friction reduction
  • Performance efficiency improvement

Technical specifications

Embedded ECU capable of simultaneously controlling up to four electro-mechanical actuators

  • Modular design, separate designs for control and power module.
  • Health Monitoring Power and Capacity Management System

  • Operation over a wide range of voltages
  • Ethernet, USB, Serial & CAN communication interfaces 

This project has received funding from the Clean Sky 2 Joint Undertaking under the European Union Horizon 2020 research and innovation program under grant agreement No 785332.
