AVS-SYS is excited to have been awarded two NATEP (National Aerospace Technology Exploitation Programme) grants for development of new advanced Aerospace Ducting for Air Distribution.

AVS-SYS explains, the first project is the development of a range of new Ultra-Lightweight Flexible Aerospace Ducting utilising new materials and manufacturing techniques. Its target is to significantly reduce weight while also decreasing manufacturing time, enabling us to produce competitively priced products in the UK.

According to AVS-SYS, the second project will focus on the development of a range of Muffler Ducting for Air Distribution by testing and assessing new noise attenuation and porous lining materials and associated manufacturing techniques. Its target is to improve noise attenuation in the lower frequencies with significant reduction in weight, with the potential of being able to produce tailored noise attenuation for specific frequencies. The Muffler Ducts will take advantage of the new materials and processes for the Flexible Ducting as these will be used for the outer layer of the Muffler Ducts which will also be manufactured in the UK.

These two projects are expected to combine with ACS-SYS’s existing lightweight range of Composite Ducting and system design and integration expertise, to enable us to supply anything from individual products to complete Air Distribution and Ventilation Systems, says AVS-SYS.

AVS-SYS says that, working alongside it on the projects are Arville Textiles who are working on materials for both the Flexible Ducting and the porous liner for the Muffler Ducting, and Foam Techniques who are working on the noise attenuation layer for the Muffler Ducting.
