Concept and project objectives

STEPS-2 e’ la continuazione del progetto STEPS ed  un progetto di ricerca finanziato dalla Regione Piemonte, nato nell’ambito delle iniziative promosse dal Comitato Promotore del Distretto Aerospaziale Piemontese.

Rientra nell’agevolazione a sostegno dei “Progetti strategici su tematiche di interesse regionale o sovra regionale” (Misura Ri.7) a valere sulla LR 34/2004, Asse 1 “Ricerca e Innovazione”; tale misura è cofinanziata con il Fondo europeo di sviluppo regionale (F.E.S.R.) nell’ambito del Programma operativo regionale 2007/2013

STEPS is a Piemonte regional research project, it is the acronym of Sistemi e Tecnologie per l’EsPlorazione Spaziale (Systems and Tecnlogies for the Space Exploration). 

STEPS has been a very large R&D project (about 20 MEuro) whose leader was Thales Alenia Space. Other partners are part of the project: among them the Politecnico of Turin, the University of Turin, the University of Eastern Piedmont, ALTEC and other qualified SMEs.

ADVANCED MULTIFUNCTIONAL ZIRCONIA CERAMICS FOR LONG LASTING IMPLANTS

AIM

L’obiettivo che la ricerca in campo aeronautico si pone da sempre è quello di soddisfare le richieste di un settore in costante crescita, offrendo standard qualitativi sempre più alti e adottando soluzioni sostenibili sotto il profilo ecologico ed economico.

Un impegno continuo che negli anni ha guidato l’evoluzione del settore, attraverso veloci progressi tecnologici, che hanno reso il trasporto aereo sempre più sicuro, comodo ed efficiente.
Oggi al mondo dell’aeronautica si chiede un nuovo e importante passo in avanti.

Improved Fuel Economy, Reduced Emissions

Project objectives

The main objective of the project is to develop a new reusable solution based on multifunctional hybrid concept with very high insulation and environmental protection capability during the atmospheric re-entry and the ability to reach a TRL level between 4 and 5 at the end of the project.

From this premise it is planned to achieve the following technical targets:

E-BREAK : Engine Breakthrough Components and Subsystems

E-BREAK (Engine BREAKthrough Components and Subsystems) is a large-scale integrated project, funded by the Seventh Framework Programme of the European Commission that has started on October 2012 and that is expected to last until September 2016.

E-BREAK will contribute to reducing air traffic emissions by adapting sub-systems to new constraints of temperature and pressure.

The overarching goal of AMAZE is to rapidly produce large defect-free additively-manufactured (AM) metallic components up to 2 metres in size, ideally with close to zero waste, for use in the following high-tech sectors namely: aeronautics, space, nuclear fusion, automotive and tooling.
