Latecoere is proud to announce its contribution to Airbus’ UK-led “Wing of Tomorrow” programme.
The “Wing of Tomorrow” R&T programme tests new technologies for wing architecture and explores how wing manufacturing and industrialisation can be improved to meet future demands as the sector emerges from the pandemic.
As a partner of the programme, Latecoere has brought considerable experience in the design and manufacture of Electrical Wiring Interconnection Systems to the project, developing two demonstration systems which will be delivered to Airbus before the end of the year. Further to this work, Latecoere will be delivering the Folding Wing Tip electrical wiring system. Latecoere is managing its contribution to “Wing of Tomorrow” from its Interconnection Systems offices in Bristol, UK, with support from the sites of Hamburg, Germany, and Toulouse, France. This project also benefits from the financial support of Innovate UK, the UK’s national innovation agency.
“True to its purpose to serve aerospace with innovative solutions for a sustainable world, Latecoere supports the world’s major aircraft manufacturers on the path to decarbonation. In this context, we are proud to bring our latest Interconnection Systems industrial innovations to our long-term partner Airbus with the goal of making aviation more efficient and sustainable”, said Serge Bérenger, Chief R&T and Innovation Officer of Latecoere.
The partnership was announced during the Farnborough International Airshow, the global platform for the aerospace and defence industry making its return on 18-22 July 2022.
