PROJECT 821352 ANTIFOD: Development of a Foreign Object Debris (FOD) protection device applied to an electrical ECS fresh air inlet

Electrical Environment Control System (eECS) takes external fresh air from an inlet. Depending on aircraft altitude and type of inlet, debris and contaminants may be ingested and cause premature degradation of pack performances, affect the cabin air quality and reduce eECS components life time. The project aims at developing protective solutions to prevent eECS performance degradation due to FOD.

This project has received funding from the Clean Sky 2 Joint Undertaking under the European Union’s Horizon 2020 Research and Inovation programme under grant agreement No. 821352

Clean Sky is the largest European research programme developing innovative, cutting-edge technology aimed at reducing CO2, gas emissions and noise levels produced by aircraft. Funded by the EU’s Horizon 2020 programme, Clean Sky contributes to strengthening European aero-industry collaboration, global leadership and competitiveness.
