Spirit AeroSystems wins innovation award
Spirit AeroSystems says that it has received an Award for Composite Excellence in Manufacturing Material and Process Innovation.
The award, presented at the CAMX show, recognized the company’s development of its Advanced Structures Technology and Revolutionary Architecture (ASTRA) demonstrator aircraft panel, a full-scale composite fuselage skin part that could cut around 30% of future composite fuselage costs. The demonstrator also reduces aircraft fuselage weight by roughly 5%, according to Spirit.
The panel also features Toray's T1100/3960 composite material and A&P's Technology’s QISO braided composite fabrics.
