AXTER System Services Development
Our technology applies to electric aircraft and fuell cell aircrafts as well as defense applications
The project “Novel Energy and propUlsion systeMs for Air dominance” (NEUMANN) aims to address propulsion and energy systems technologies required for a highly efficient powerplant, able to deliver at the same time increased electrical power generation and increased thrust-to-weight ratio, which are necessary to cope with the mission requirements and operational needs of the next generation of fighter aircraft.
Leaded by GE Avio and Leonardo, Axter participates in the electrical power generation and leads the energy storage system.
NEUMANN offers an opportunity to pursue the technological development of electric power and propulsion systems for the sixth generation of aircraft for the air domain. It is a key project which has, among its priorities, the enhancement of European defense and technological industrial base.
In the context of the fast-changing electromagnetic warfare environment and given the rapid current military capabilities shortcomings of the EU Member States in the area of Airborne Electronic Attack (AEA), REACT II will bring all the progress made and the lessons learned from REACT I (funded under EDIDP-2019). The REACT II system solution will be capable of performing Escort jamming, Stand-Off Jamming, Stand-In Jamming, Electronic Warfare Command and Control and Cyber and Electromagnetic Activities, ultimately improving reliability and security for operations.
