Creating new capabilities for net zero commercial aircraft

The ATI has published the UK Aerospace Technology Strategy, Destination Zero, which describes the path to net zero commercial aircraft by 2050. This presentation will explore new capabilities which are in development in the ATI portfolio of R&T projects and will thereby grow the aerospace sector's strengths to realize the 2050 target. The role of both ultra-efficient and zero-carbon propulsion system technologies will be explored, together with complementary advances in aircraft systems to support the future market.
