Press Release: UHBR Thermals

S&C partner on another ATI-funded programme

S & C Thermofluids is proud to announce their involvement as a partner on a third research project supported by a grant from the Aerospace Technology Institute, providing game-changing research and development in aerospace.

The £7.4 million programme will focus on developing innovative new technologies which will enable the design of increasingly lighter, more compact thermal management solutions to maximise aero engine performance. Meggitt PLC, together with a consortium of selected business partners including S & C Thermofluids, has secured UK Government funding of £3.7 million to finance research and development in advanced thermal systems technology for next-generation energy efficient ultra-high bypass ratio (UHBR) aero engines. The grant, provided through the Aerospace Technology Institute (ATI) programme, will be matched by the consortium.

S&C will be providing analysis capability and expertise at the design and test phases. The project includes a follow on programme of work to the diffusion bonded aero heat exhanger (DBAHX) project, also supported by the ATI, in which S & C was a partner 2015-2017.

About The ATI Programme

The ATI R&T programme represents a joint Government and Industry investment that seeks to maintain and grow the UK's competitive position in aerospace design and manufacture. It is principally a strategic programme addressing large scale technology and capability challenges over the medium to long term timeframe. Under the ATI R&T programme, government provides grant funding for research projects up to 50% of the total project value, and for capital investment projects up to 100% of the total investment value.

The programme is coordinated and managed by the Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy (BEIS), Innovate UK and the Aerospace Technology Institute. All three organisations work in close collaboration to deliver a coherent portfolio of projects to meet the objectives and priorities of the UK Aerospace Technology Strategy.
