A breakthrough propulsion technology to provide greener air transport could be developed after the underlying engineering was declared a success.
ACHEON, involving six universities and two research organisations from across the EU, aimed to demonstrate the scientific feasibility of a novel propulsion method which is expected to overcome the main limitations of traditional systems related to jet deflection exhausts.
This revolutionary technology is capable of directing the flow and pressure without any mechanical moving parts, which could see shorter take-off and landing, more comfortable and safe flight operations and greener propulsion.
This emerging technology, funded by the 7th Framework Programme of the European Commission, is an example of a project starting from an academic research basic which aims to produce an impact in terms of effective industrial innovation.
