Key impacts stemming from the project:

Reducing energy consumption and environmental impact of aviation
Reducing helicopter fuel burn and emissions by 5 – 10%

Improving European industrial competitiveness and reinforcing employment
The results of this project will generate substantial recurring savings in direct operating costs, offsetting the initial cost of the added technology over the life or the airframe thus keeping Europe competitive and securing employment within the industry

Knowledge transfer of morphing technologies
The methods used in SABRE could have positive implications for fixed wing aircraft and through active blade control it is also potentially adaptable to large scale wind turbines, making them more cost efficient

Delivering international collaboration for innovation
Fostering new partnerships which will help integrate new knowledge into industry after the project end
