SABRE: Countdown to Testing!
In the closing weeks of 2020 activity by all SABRE partners reaches fever pitch as work is done to get the morphing technology demonstrators ready for testing in early 2021.
This programme of experimental testing represents the culmination of all the work that has been carried out during the project – turning the analysis into hardware and lining up these flexible and adaptive structures for wind tunnel and whirl tower testing.
The SABRE team hopes that helicopters may soon benefit from these research efforts in terms of reduced environmental impact, increased performance, and lower operating costs.
We eagerly await the results. Watch this space for further news!…..
