reducing sound emission for a better future
The core mission of AEROMIC is to develop breakthrough microphone technologies to significantly increase the environmental performance of aircraft, such as reducing noise emissions. AEROMIC aims to develop advanced digital microphones by leveraging the state-of-the-art microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) technology for next-generation aeroacoustic applications, which will contribute to European competitiveness in the aeronautics industry.
In the AEROMIC project, the final target is to provide a turn-key fast applicable solution for aeroacoustic measurements, which is expected to have a marked impact on some EU-leading industries such as the aviation, automotive, and wind energy. For example, the advanced method of aeroacoustic measurements can not only accelerate the development progress in the aviation and automotive sectors but also improve the overall performance of aircrafts and vehicles. Consequently, the smart, green, and integrated transport will be achieved as a driven force of the economy recovery after the COVID-19 pandemic.
Aeromic as flagship project
The AEROMIC project is the first EU project coordinated by SAL, which brings us to a remarkable opportunity for embracing Europe’s aeronautical research and innovation. Also, it is the only granted project in the MEMS field under the H2020/Clean Sky 2 programme in 2020.
