Clean Sky 2 is a Joint Technology Initiative (JTI) that aims to develop and mature breakthrough ‘clean technologies’ for Air Transport. Clean Sky 2 will deliver breakthrough technologies for incorporation into the next generations of aircraft from 2025 onwards. By spearheading European aeronautics research culminating in demonstrations of game-changing new vehicle configurations, Clean Sky 2 will enable the aeronautics industry to introduce innovations in timescales that would otherwise be unachievable. In so doing, it will drive environmental improvements, increase transport efficiency, and create jobs and growth for Europe.
The objective is to study and prototype the next generation of low-profile airborne antennas that will be used for In-Flight Connectivity in the horizon 2022-2025. Such project will have to demonstrate that the use of electronically steering can meet the stringent requirements of commercial aircraft connectivity, while bringing significant benefits such as reduced maintenance, low drag and weight.
