NEUMANN is a pan-European collaborative project involving major players of the EDITB, including key industry, mid-cap, SME and research organization, to address the urgent need for strategic autonomy for the development of building blocks needed for competitive novel propulsion and energy systems for future air dominance. The project studies will address propulsion and energy systems technologies required for an highly efficient powerplant, able to deliver at the same time increased electrical power generation and increased thrust-to-weight ratio, that are not available today in Europe but will be necessary to cope with the mission requirements and operational needs of the next generation of fighter aircraft. The goal of the NEUMANN project is to develop technologies and perform collaborative system studies for novel energy aircraft domains, with focus on propulsion, and electrical and thermal systems and engagement, to achieve in 4-year period a proof of system integration functionalities and increased confidence in enabling technology readiness at both subsystems and system level up to TRL 4. Ground demonstrators will be used to assess technology integration and their validation. The project is organised in 9 work packages and coordinated by GE Avio. Besides the broad industry presence, it is of utmost importance that LEONARDO and SAAB as aircraft manufacturers are part of the NEUMANN project, which is fundamental for optimal power integration at platform level. The NEUMANN project will enable strategic autonomy in the defence sector for the power and propulsion systems, in particular for high temperature materials, thermal management enhanced by additive manufacturing technologies, energy generation and management and control systems. The NEUMANN project will fertilize knowledge transfer and implementation of new technologies in the EU, establish important new cross-border collaborations with SME and mid-caps in the defence sector.
