Sustainable aerospace research
Regional air traffic of the future has to be sustainable, as silent as possible and low in emissions. As an innovative, accredited test centre and certification body, IMA Dresden is part of a consortium that plans to build an aircraft for the requirements and generations to come: the so-called “Silent Air Taxi E-SATstart”, shortly named “E-SATs”.
The silent “E-SATs”, which will be driven by a parallel hybrid system, is being developed by RWTH Aachen University, TU Hamburg in cooperation with eight technology companies. The task of IMA Dresden is to carry out structural tests in cooperation with the Institute for Textile Technology. The test results should lead to the production of a prototype for the wing construction: the criteria for that will be based upon stability and strength testing.
