The University of Malta, through the Institute of Aerospace Technologies, participated in an exhibition organised at Casa dell’Aviatore in Rome between the 8th and 9th of February.

The purpose of this exhibition was to demonstrate various aerospace technologies developed by partners of the ACROSS research project. As part of this project, the University of Malta developed a new application that assists pilots to avoid hazardous weather during the departure phase of flight. This application was demonstrated successfully during the two-day exhibition to members of the project consortium, external industry experts, as well as the general public.  

ACROSS is a research and development project co-funded by the European Commission under the Seventh Framework Programme with the main objective of developing novel technologies to reduce crew workload in the flight deck environment. The consortium consists of 35 partners from 12 different European countries. The project is being led by Thales and will come to an end in June this year. More information about the ACROSS project can be found here.

Meeting with Latécoère and ONERA

The Institute of Aerospace Technologies recently had a workshop with representatives from Latécoère and ONERA. Latécoère is a French aircraft company which works closely with the major aircraft manufacturers (such as Airbus and Boeing) and airlines and specialises in areas including avionics racks, test benches, harnesses and sensors. On the other hand, ONERA is the French aeronautics, space and defense research lab. The IAT has worked with both of these entities in past research projects, including ALICIA.
