Vision Systems’ solutions for Clean Sky 2 European research programme

Vision Systems takes part in Clean Sky 2 European research programme in partnership with Airbus Helicopters, to develop RACER (Rapid And Cost-Effective Rotorcraft). This demonstrator will incorporate a host of innovative features and will be optimised for a cruise speed of more than 400 km/h. It will aim at achieving the best trade-off between speed, cost-efficiency, sustainability and mission performance. Final assembly of the demonstrator is expected to start in 2019, with a first flight the next year.

Vision Systems will develop 2 Composite Jettisonable Window Frames for the cockpit and 1 Composite Jettisonable Window Frame for the cabin as well as an Electric Composite Footstep. Cabin windows will be equipped with our X-Lite Composite glass. These innovative solutions proposed by Vision Systems based on our expertise in composite and mechatronics, are fully in line with the Clean Sky 2 approach, particularly in terms of optical and acoustic quality, strength, lightness, operational efficiency and safety.
