"One of the priorities for the entire industry is how to make aviation more sustainable – making flying cleaner, greener and quieter than ever before. We know from our work on the A350 XWB passenger jet that through biomimicry, nature has some of the best lessons we can learn about design."
Martin Aston - Senior Manager at Airbus.
Revolutionising aviation and air travel, environmental sustainability targets are driving the aerospace sector to collectively address the global challenge.
Airbus is committed to reducing and reversing the environmental impact of emissions, noise, waste and infrastructure. Delivering efficient aircraft such as the A350XWB, and the A320neo has enabled the aviation industry to cut fuel burn and CO2 emissions per seat/kilometer by more than 80%, NOx emissions by 90% and noise by 75% of the products in operation.
Striving for effective environmental management and decarbonising the industry is a key part of Airbus core strategy, with a long term objective of emission neutral flight. Rapid innovation is required to create opportunities to reshape and transform the sector. Driven by disruptive technologies, new materials, and digitalisation, Airbus is actively searching for sustainable solutions to deliver sectoral emission reduction goals. The pioneering e-Fan-X development, a hybrid electric demonstrator for CityAirbus, marks a step change in aircraft conceptual design, ushering in a new era of flight. Flight Physics is at the core of an optimised future green aircraft.
‘Innovating green aircraft optimisation for a sustainable future’ will celebrate the 10th Anniversary of Airbus DiPaRT. The Distributed Partnership in Research and Technology (DiPaRT) was created by Airbus as a mechanism for engaging and collaborating with the UK and European Flight Physics R&T community. The event will present Airbus’s strategic aspirations, with focus on Flight Physics contributions, through engaging with organisations and partners to identify potential technologies and research aligned with core strategy.
The conference will take place between 26th - 28th November 2019, hosted at The Centre for Modelling & Simulation, Bristol. The event commences with a series of brief presentations by industry and research institution leaders, reflecting on the past and anticipating the future. Providing strategic orientation for DiPaRT to address and drive future challenges via collaborative and cooperative initiatives. Panellists will lead discussions, set up direction and steer the streams. A keynote presentation will set the scene for the 2-day Symposium presentations.
Registration for DiPaRT 2019 is closed.
