    The main objective of the MUPIA project is to demonstrate a cost-efficient manufacturing process for a high end MEMS gyroscope for aerospace Applications. Both the sensor element and the packaging process is critical to achieve a precise, long term stable and reliable component. The consortium consist of SINTEF and Cerinnov, which together with sub Suppliers cover both the necessary silicon MEMS processing and the high end ceramic packaging technology needed to reach the goal of the project. SINTEF has worked with industrialisation of MEMS components since the 1960s. Despite being a research industry, SINTEF holds the certifications ISO 9001:2015, ISO 14001:2015 and OHSAS 18001:2007 and have a regular production of MEMS components for the petroleum, medical and aerospace industry. Cerinnov has expertise in laser processes for ablation and sintering. They will collaborate with a sub Suppliers with the development of the package for the gyroscope.

    Within the 6th call of Clean Sky 2, the Voice Crew Interaction (VOICI) project aims to develop the technology that implements an intelligent voice crew interaction system as a "natural crew assistant" in a cockpit environment up to TRL 3. The main goal of the project is to provide a proof-of-concept demonstrator of a natural crew assistant, which is capable of listening to all communications occurring in the cockpit, either between crew members or between crew and ATC, recognizing and interpreting speech content, interacting with the crew and fulfilling crew requests, such as to simplify crew tasks and reduce workload. The topic leader has predefined: sound recording, voice recognition and artificial intelligence, as the three main technology components constituting the system, which should fulfil specific predefined requirements. Robustness against noisy environment, high recognition rate and requests interpretation are among the predefined requirements. An audio evaluation environment will be developed, which will allow the evaluation of the sound recording/voice recognition systems and natural crew assistant according to evaluation scenarios provided by the topic manager.

    The project AUDIO will coordinate the Airspace User (AU) involvement in the demonstration of innovative airport operations functionalities designed to improve airport operations. It is designed to secure the involvement of additional end-users to perform operational demonstrations to confirm the benefits and increase awareness of promising solutions targeting specific operational scenarios and environments. AUDIO is addressing the topic Integrated Airport Operations (SESAR-VLD1-02-2016) which is related to the Very Large Demonstration PJ28 IA (Integrated Airport Operations as part of SESAR2020). In particular AUDIO demonstrates the use of functionalities designed to improve airport operations from an airspace user perspective. For the On-board taxi functions, on-board surface guidance will be demonstrated on board of aircraft during day to day operations of airlines. Demonstrations will be conducted in a real live environment. A dedicated dissemination WP is designed to cover the important need of the distribution of results. Coordinated with the dissemination activities of PJ28 a harmonized approach will be taken to make sure the results of the demonstration activities are well communicated within the SESAR as well as the whole ATM community.

    Air Traffic Management (ATM) systems are large systems-of-systems that are managed via multiple layers (e.g., operational, organizational, technical) to better handle their complexity. Due to their tight interdependencies, any change introduced in either of these layers triggers changes in other layers. As such, change management in ATM systems is a difficult task and requires to know the full implications of change(s) over the whole system and support decision-making so that the ATM system does not suffer any issues with respect to functionality, safety, security, performance, cost efficiency, or other desired characteristics for a well-functioning ATM system. The main objective of PACAS is to better understand, model and analyze changes at different layers of the ATM system to support change management, while capturing how architectural and design choices influence the overall system. PACAS will deliver an innovative participatory change management process where stakeholders will actively participate to the architectural evolution of the ATM system. The key elements of PACAS are: (i) domain-specific modeling languages to express heterogeneous perspectives of ATM domain experts; (ii) impact propagation techniques to align multiple perspectives; (iii) a gamified platform as key driver for collaboration. The PACAS consortium will leverage state-of-art multi-view modeling methods, multi-objective reasoning techniques, and gamification approaches to develop and evaluate an innovative ATM participatory change management process. The validation will be assisted an external advisory board, composed of ATM domain experts, focusing on a limited number of strategic objectives concerning economical, organizational, security and safety aspects. The validation aims to demonstrate the generality of the PACAS concept and the potential for extended versions that support additional strategic perspectives that affect ATM change management.

    The project develops and demonstrates nearly Zero Energy Wood Buildings design process and procurement models with reduced cost for large-scale use in the northern climatic conditions and on performance level of nearly zero and beyond. The project promotes large-scale market uptake of the developed nearly Zero Energy Wood Building applicable for construction industry design and procurement process. On site and nearby renewable energy system solutions are studied in order to provide real addition of renewable and energy production of on-site energy system. In addition to the nearly zero energy performance level, the project is also focusing on the performance level, which does beyond the nZEB level. Demonstration tasks on net-zero and energy-plus level will be also executed in the project. Analysis of the technical solutions including renewable energy systems will also reach to the plus-energy level because several nZEB buildings studied in the project will be plus-energy buildings. The project develops and demonstrates methods and solutions, which significantly reduce the cost of new nearly Zero Energy Wood Buildings compared to the current situation. The project develops standard design process and procurement models for cost reduction for different building types for the Northern Europe climatic conditions. The cost reduction of the nearly Zero Energy Wood Buildings is shown in the project by means of the demonstration projects including both residential and non-residential single buildings. Wood buildings can result in 50 % reduced GHG emissions compared to conventional buildings with steel and concrete structures.
