Section: Bilateral Contracts and Grants with Industry

Airbus France

Participant : Yves Papegay.

To improve the production of numerical (flight) simulators from models of aerodynamics, Airbus France is interested in methods and tools like those described in 6.3.1 .

Following the contracts signed in 2003, 2005 and 2007 with the aircraft maker, and a consulting contract in 2008 to study the possible development of an industrial tool, we have initiated in 2009 a 2-years collaboration (extended in 2012) to enhanced the functionnalities and performances of the existing pieces of software belonging to Airbus and to turn them into a prototype that integrate and showcase our results.

Following a first transfer agreement signed in 2010, and another contract licensing to Airbus a second version of this prototype in 2011, a last agreement to be signed in November 2012 will license the final and tested version [34] .
